Hail, Holy Queen,
Because you are the Queen of Heaven. The mother of Jesus Christ, the King of Heaven.
Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope!
Mother of Mercy because you are the Mother of Jesus Christ, mercy incarnate.
Mother of our life, because Christ is our life.
Mother of our sweetness, because Christ is sweetness itself.
Mother of our hope, because Christ is our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears!
Because children cry to their mother in their anguish and pain. And Jesus Christ gave you to us, to be our Mother:
John 19:27 Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.
Because Mothers are the heart of the home and will intercede for the children to the Father. That is why we turn to you, O Blessed Mother of God.
Turn, then, O most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Because it is to Him that you bring all your children. Molding all of us, in His image and giving us to Him as you gave Him to us.
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
Intercede for us, Mama, before your Son. Your motherly prayer, will be heard.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
