O most lovable Queen and Mother Mary, whose sweet name gladdens the heavens, consoles the earth and daunts hell! O peerless greatness granted to you by Him who is omnipotent, that all might share in the benefits of that plenitude, namely: the sick their cure; the sorrowful their consolation; the sinners their forgiveness; the angels their joy, and the Blessed Trinity untold glory! I have recourse in this novena to you as an armour for my defense, as a medicine for my health, as a consolation for my grief, as an effective relief for my burdens, as a help unto the remission of my sins and as a universal remedy for all my needs. Therefore I beseech You time and again and frequently repeat these sweet words.

Escucha benigna del pueblo el clamor,

Que acude a tu templo con fe y devocion.
