The Mother of Mercy

During the JUBILEE OF MERCY, Archbishop Cardinal Nichols has asked Catholic in England and Wales to use the Salve Regina a little. Although it might seem new to many of us, Catholics have been praying this prayer since the 11th century. We continue the tradition of asking Mary, the Mother of Mercy, to lead us to her Son Jesus as we pray:

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and 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 vale of tears. Turn then, 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! Pray for us; O Holy Mother of God, that we made be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.
