May we be assisted, we beseech Thee, O Lord, by the worshipful intercession of Thy glorious Mother, the ever-Virgin Mary; that we, who have been enriched by her perpetual blessings, may be delivered from all dangers, and through her loving kindness made to be of one heart and mind: Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.
- Adiuvet nos, a traditional prayer for Mary’s intercession from the Liturgy of the Hours in the Common of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
O Mary, powerful Virgin, Thou art the mighty and glorious protector of the Church; Thou art the marvelous help of Christians; Thou art terrible as an army in battle array; Thou alone hast destroyed every heresy in the whole world.
In the midst of our struggles, our anguish, and our distress, defend us from the power of the enemy and at the hour of death, receive our souls into Paradise. Amen.
- St Don Bosco
