A PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN, "HELP OF CHRISTIANS."
The Raccolta, ed. 1902. #75. p. 354 His Holiness, Leo XIII., by a rescript of the S. Congr. of Indulgences, December 20, 1890.
Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God and our Mother, Mary,
thou seest how, from every quarter, the devil and the world are assailing the Catholic faith,
in which we purpose, by God's mercy, to live and to die, that we may gain eternal glory.
O Help of Christians,
renew thy former victories for the safety of thy children.
They intrust to thy care their firm purpose never to belong to any gathering of heretics or sectaries;
O thou who art all holy, offer up our resolutions to thy divine Son,
and obtain from him the graces necessary to keep us true to them unto the end.
Console the visible Head of the Church,
help the Catholic Episcopate,
protect the clergy and the faithful who hail thee as Queen,
hasten, by the power of thy intercession,
the day which shall see all nations gathered together about the Supreme Pastor.
Maria, Auxilium Christianorum, ora pro nobis.
