O Mary, Mother of Mercy and Refuge of sinners,

we beseech thee,

be pleased to look with pitiful eyes

upon poor heretics and schismatics.

Thou who art the Seat of Wisdom,

enlighten the minds that are miserably enfolded

in the darkness of ignorance and sin,

that they may clearly know

that the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Roman Church

is the one true Church of Jesus Christ,

outside of which neither holiness nor salvation can be found.

Finish the work of their conversion

by obtaining for them the grace

to accept all the truths of our Holy Faith,

and to submit themselves to the Supreme Roman Pontiff,

the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth;

that so, being united with us in the sweet chains of Divine charity,

there may soon be one only fold

under the same one Shepherd;

and may we all,

O Glorious Virgin,

sing forever with exultation:

Rejoice, O Virgin Mary,

thou only hast destroyed all heresies in the whole world.
