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 apparition]s. 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].
O [clement], O [loving], O [sweet Virgin Mary]. [Amen]
