Hail Holy Queen,

Mother of Mercy, 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 towards 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 may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Saint Michael the Archangel,

with your light enlighten us, Saint Michael the Archangel with your wings protect us, Saint Michael the Archangel with your sword defend us against evil and sin; let us be children of the light.

My Jesus, pardon and mercy,

for the world, through the merits of Thy Holy Wounds (3 times).

“Lord Jesus, have compassion on France,
Graciously hold it tightly in your love and show it much tenderness.
So ordain things that, full of love for you, it contributes to make you loved In all nations on earth.
Oh Love of Jesus, we now promise to remain always faithful to you And to work with a heart on fire to spread your reign throughout the universe. Amen”

Prayer of Saint John Paul II

“Ô Mother of Mercy, we entrust to your heart and to your love the people of all nations and the Church of the earth. Keep us from all injustice, division, violence and war.

Ô Mother of Christ, may you be our comfort and give strength to those who suffer: to the poor, to the lonely, to the sick, to the unloved, to the abandoned. Bring peace to our divided world; and the light of hope to all of us. Amen.”
