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 by thee.
Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, Mary, Virgin of virgins, Mother of Jesus Christ; to thee do I come; before
thee I stand, sinful, sorrowful and trembling.
O Mistress of the World and Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer wretched me crying to thee in
this vale of tears.
Be near me, I beseech thee, in all my necessities, now and always, and especially at the hour of my death.
O clement, o loving, o sweet Virgin Mary. Amen.
Prayer to St John Fisher
O GOD, Who didst grant to Thy blessed Bishop John, the grace courageously to give his life for truth
and justice, grant through his intercession and example that we may so lose our life in this world for
Christ, that we may find it in heaven.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who liveth and
reigneth with You in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, for ever and ever, Amen.
O GOD, Who didst bestow upon the blessed Martyr Thomas – the grace to embrace Thy Cross with a
joyous and resolute spirit amidst the snares of the world, and the sufferings of prison and death, grant,
we pray Thee, through his intercession and example, that eagerly striving for faith and justice we may
merit to come to the joys of everlasting life.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who liveth
and reigneth with You in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, for ever and ever, Amen.
