Sancta Maria, mater Dei,

Te patronam,
te sospitatricem eligo.
Tuus honor et cultus
aeternum mihi cordi fuerit,
quem ego nunquam deseram
neque ab aliis mihi subditis
verbo factoque violari patiar.
Sancta Maria, tu pia
me pedibus tuis advolutum recipe,
in vita protege,
in mortis discrimine defende.
Amen.
