"Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women", are the words of the angel Gabriel at the Annunciation (Luke 1:28).
Visitation

"Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb", are the words of Mary's cousin Elizabeth, who was soon to become the mother of St. John the Baptist. These words were spoken at the Visitation (Luke 1:42).

The words "Mary" and "Jesus" along with "Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen." were added by the Church.

TO OUR LADY
Blessed Mother LOVELY Lady dressed in blue–—
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little Boy,
Tell me what to say!
Did you lift Him up, sometimes,
Gently, on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way
Mother does to me?
Did you hold His hand at night?
Did you ever try
Telling stories of the world?
O! And did He cry?
Do you really think He cares
If I tell Him things–—
Little things that happen? And
Do the Angels’ wings
Make a noise? And can He hear
Me if I speak low?
Does He understand me now?
Tell me–—for you know!
Lovely Lady dressed in blue,
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little Boy.
And you know the way.

Novena To
OUR LADY OF THE
MIRACULOUS MEDAL

Leader: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
People: Amen
Leader: Come, O Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your Faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Your love. Send forth Your Spirit, and they shall be created.
People: And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Leader: Let us pray.
O God, who did instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise and ever to rejoice in His consolation, through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
People: Amen.
Repeat the following two lines, 3 times.
Leader: O Mary, conceived without sin,
People: Pray for us who have recourse to you.

Leader and People: O Lord Jesus Christ, who have vouchsafed to glorify by numberless miracles the Blessed Virgin Mary, immaculate from the first moment of her conception, grant that all who devoutly implore her protection on earth, may eternally enjoy Your presence in heaven, who, with the Father and Holy Spirit, live and reign, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
O Lord Jesus Christ, who for the accomplishment of Your greatest works, have chosen the weak things of the world, that no flesh may glory in Your sight; and who for a better and more widely diffused belief in the Immaculate Conception of Your Mother, have wished that the Miraculous Medal be manifested to Saint Catherine Labouré, grant, we beseech You, that filled with like humility, we may glorify this mystery by word and work. Amen.

MEMORARE
Leader and People: Remember, O most compassionate Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your assistance, or sought your intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto you, O Virgin of Virgins, our Mother; to you we come; before you we kneel sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in your clemency hear and answer them. Amen.

NOVENA PRAYER
Leader and People: O Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother, penetrated with the most lively confidence in your all-powerful and never-failing intercession, manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal, we your loving and trustful children implore you to obtain for us the graces and favors we ask during this Novena, if they be beneficial to our immortal souls, and the souls for whom we pray.
(Here privately form your petitions.)
You know, O Mary, how often our souls have been the sanctuaries of your Son who hates iniquity. Obtain for us then a deep hatred of sin and that purity of heart which will attach us to God alone so that our every thought, word and deed may tend to His greater glory. Obtain for us also a spirit of prayer and self-denial that we may recover by penance what we have lost by sin and at length attain to that blessed abode where you are the Queen of angels and of men. Amen.

AN ACT OF CONSECRATION TO
OUR LADY OF THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL

Leader and People: O Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate, we dedicate and consecrate ourselves to you under the title of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. May this Medal be for each one of us a sure sign of your affection for us and a constant reminder of our duties toward you. Ever while wearing it, may we be blessed by your loving protection and preserved in the grace of your Son. O most powerful Virgin, Mother of our Savior, keep us close to you every moment of our lives. Obtain for us, your children, the grace of a happy death; so that, in union with you, we may enjoy the bliss of heaven forever. Amen.
Repeat the following two lines, 3 times.
Leader: O Mary, conceived without sin,
People: Pray for us who have recourse to you.
