Salve Regina (thing)
Return to Salve Regina (thing)
|The Salve Regina is recited at the end of the rosary. It is said to be the favorite prayer of the Virgin Mary herself, as reported by those who had experienced Marian apparitions. Below is the more traditional english translation:
HAIL holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, 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 valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us. And after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
