Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae; vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve. Ad te clamamus exsules filii Hevae. Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes in hac lacrimarum valle. Eia ergo, advocata nostra, illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte.
Et Iesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui, nobis post hoc exsilium ostende. O clemens, o pia, o dulcis Virgo Maria.
V. Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genitrix. R. Ut digni efficamur promissionibus Christi.
Oremus. Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui gloriosae Virginis Matris Mariae corpus et animam, ut dignum Filii tui habitaculum effici mereretur, Spiritu Sancto cooperante, praeparasti, da, ut cuius commemoratione laetamur; eius pia intercessione, ab instantibus malis et a morte perpetua liberemur. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
Hail Holy Queen
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To thee to 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.
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray. Almighty and everlasting God, Who by the working of the Holy Spirit didst prepare both body and soul of the glorious Virgin Mother, Mary, that she might deserve to be made a worthy dwelling for Thy Son, grant that we who rejoice in her memory, may, by her loving intercession, be delivered from present evils and from lasting death, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
The great seasonal Marian antiphons are four beautiful and ancient prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary. They come from the Divine Office, office of Compline, the last of the sung hours of the day; and they are said or sung immediately before going to sleep.
The Marian antiphons are “seasonal” because they shift according to the liturgical seasons of the year. Each of the four also has a simple tone Gregorian melody that accompanies the Latin text.
When sung at the conclusion of Mass, only the anthem is sung, the anthem is in bold text.
Alma Redemptoris Mater The Alma Redemptoris Mater is sung from the first Sunday of Advent until the Feast of the Purification on February 2 (the original ending date of the Christmas season).
Ave Regina Caelorum The Ave Regina Caelorum is sung from Candlemas Day (the Feast of the Presentation, February 2) through Wednesday of Holy Week (the Wednesday before Easter).
Regina Caeli The Regina Caeli is sung throughout Eastertide, from Easter Day through Pentecost, the seventh Sunday after Easter.
Salve Regina The Salve Regina is sung from the day after Pentecost Sunday until the first Sunday of Advent.
