The Memorare Remember, 0 most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, 0 Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful; 0 Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
