Holy Virgin, full of power and goodness,

casts a favorable gaze upon us

in all the needs we find ourselves in.

Remember, O most merciful Lady of the Rosary!

invoked your most holy name,

and implored your singular protection,

would be abandoned by you.

Encouraged by this confidence, we turn to you.

We take you from today and forever as our Mother,

our protector, comfort and guide,

hope and light at the hour of death.

Deliver us from all that may offend you.

and Your Most Holy Son, Jesus.

Preserve us from all dangers of soul and body;

direct us in all spiritual and temporal affairs;

deliver us from the temptation of the devil,

so that walking along the path of virtue,

may one day see you and love you in eternal glory,

for ever and ever.

Amen.
