A MARIAN PRAYER of the 11 TH CENTURY (Source Unknown)
O Mary, you are inviolate,
pure and without stain,
you who became the glistening gate of heaven.
O most dear and gracious Mother of Jesus,
receive our modest songs of praise.
We beg you with heart and lips:
make our bodies and our souls pure.
By your sweet prayers,
obtain eternal pardon for us.
O Mother most kind!
Who alone remained inviolate!
