Concluding Prayers † Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy! Hail our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sights, 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. Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us. R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
† Let us pray: O God, whose only begotten Son, by his life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech thee, that meditating upon these mysteries of the most holy rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may both imitate what they contain, and obtain when they promise; through the same Christ, our Lord. Amen.
V. May the divine assistance remain always with us. R. May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace…Amen †
