Ave Maria Meditations
Prayer in honor of Mary: Hail Mary, Daughter of God the Father! Hail Mary, Mother of God the Son! Hail Mary, Spouse of the Holy Spirit! Hail Mary, Temple of the most Holy Trinity!
Hail Mary, our mistress, our wealth, our mystic rose, Queen of our hearts, our mother, our life, our sweetness and our dearest hope!
We are all the thine and all we have is thine. O Virgin blessed above all things, may thy soul be in us to magnify the Lord; may thy spirit be in us to rejoice in God. Place thyself, O faithful Virgin, as a seal upon our hearts, that in thee and through thee we may be found faithful to God.
Grant, most gracious Virgin, that we may be numbered among those whom thou art pleased to love, to teach and to guide, to favor and to protect as thy children. Grant that with the help of thy love, we may despise all earthly consolation and cling to heavenly things, until through the Holy Spirit, thy faithful spouse, and through thee, His faithful spouse, that Jesus Christ thy Son be formed within us for the glory of the Father. Amen.
St. Louis Marie de Montfort
