MEMORARE TO OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary of Guadalupe, that in your celestial apparitions on the mount of Tepeyac, you promised to show compassion and pity towards all who, loving and trusting you, seek your help and call upon you in their necessities and afflictions. You promised to hearken to our supplications, to dry our tears and to give us consolation and relief.
Never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, either for the common welfare, or in personal anxieties, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto you, O Mary, ever Virgin Mother of the True God! Though grieving under the weight of our sins, we come to prostrate ourselves in your august presence, certain that you will deign to fulfill your merciful promises.
We are full of hope that, standing beneath your shadow and protection, nothing will trouble or afflict us, nor need we fear illness, or misfortune, or any other sorrow. You have decided to remain with us through your admirable image, who are our Mother, our health and our life. Placing ourselves beneath your maternal gaze and having recourse to you in all our necessities we need do nothing more.
O Holy Mother of God, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us. Amen.
