SALUTATION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN BY
ST FRANCIS OF ASSISI
Hail, O Lady,
Mary, holy Mother of God:
you are the Virgin made church
and the one chosen by the most holy Father in heaven
whom he consecrated
with his most holy beloved Son
and the Holy Spirit the Paraclete,
in whom there was and is
all the fullness of grace and every good.
Hail, His Palace!
Hail, his Tabernacle!
Hail, His Home!
Hail, His Robe!
Hail, His Servant!
Hail, His Mother!
And, hail all you holy virtues
which through the grace and light of the Holy Spirit
are poured into the hearts of the faithful,
so that from their faithless state
you may make them faithful to God.
