You never forget something you learned as a kid....

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection

implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto Thee,

O Virgin of Virgins, my mother. To thee I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the

Word lncarnate, despise not my petition, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me.
