Memorare to Saint Anne

[Saint Anne]Remember, O holy mother, Saint Anne, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided, for you are a most merciful mother, and do aid all who are in distress. Inspired by this confidence I take refuge in you, and beseech you by your great prerogative of being the mother of the Queen of Heaven and grand-parent of the Saviour of the world, to come to my aid with your powerful intercession, and obtain from your Immaculate Daughter this favour (mention it).

In honour of the nine months during which you did bear the Ever Blessed Virgin in your womb, and did bring her forth without stain of original sin, I now offer up these nine Hail Marys, which I offer you through my angel guardian. Amen.
