PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN BY ST FRANCIS OF ASSISI
Hail holy Lady, most noble Queen, Mother of God, and Mary ever Virgin. You were chosen by the heavenly Father, who has been pleased to honor you with the presence of his most holy Son and the Divine Paraclete.
You were blessed with the fullness of grace and goodness. Hail, Temple of God, his dwelling place, his masterpiece, his handmaid. Hail, Mother of God, I venerate you for the holy virtues that — through the grace and light of the Holy Spirit — you bring into the hearts of your devoted ones to change them from unfaithful Christians to faithful children of God. Amen.
