Memorare

 

A Memorare for all our intentions:

 

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen.

Memorare, O piissima Virgo Maria,
a saeculo non esse auditum, quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia,
tua implorantem auxilia, tua petentem suffragia,
esse derelictum.
Ego tali animatus confidentia,
ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro,
ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto.
Noli, Mater Verbi,
verba mea despicere;
sed audi propitia et exaudi.
Amen.

I have a special intention for a loved one seeking employment.  I have occasionally encountered people, not atheists, with honorable exceptions, since they tend to snort at everything except themselves, who snort at prayers of petition, wondering if God concerns Himself about minor things.  My response is to note that I have it on the Highest Authority that God marks the fall of sparrows, so I assume that there is nothing too small for Him to be concerned about.
