Immaculate Virgin of Lourdes,
in compliance with your loving invitation,
we kneel before you in the lowly grotto
where you appeared in order to point out the way of prayer and penance
to those who had strayed
and to distribute to those sorely beset
by bitter anguish the graces and marvels of your queenly bounty.
Accept, compassionate Queen,
the praise and prayers
which all peoples and nations
address to you with confidence.
O shining vision of Paradise,
dispel the shadows of error from our minds
with the light of Faith.
O mystical Rose,
comfort dejected souls with the heavenly fragrance of Hope.
O inexhaustible source of life-giving waters,
refresh our barren hearts with the waves of Divine Love.
Grant that we, your children,
strengthened in affliction,
protected in danger,
supported in our struggles,
may so love and serve your Divine Son
as to merit eternal joys at the food of your Heavenly throne.
