Prayer of Pope Pius Xii Mary Our Strength

O Virgin, fair as the moon,

delight of the angels and saints in heaven,

grant that we may become like you

and that our souls may receive a ray of your beauty,

which does not decline with the years

but shines forth into eternity.

O Mary, sun of heaven,

restore life where there is death

and enlighten spirits where there is darkness.

Turn your countenance to your children

and radiate on us your light and your fervor.

O Mary, powerful as an army,

grant victory to our ranks.

We are very weak

and our enemy rages with uttermost conceit.

But under your banner

we are confident of overcoming him.

Save us, O Mary,

fair as the moon,

bright as the sun,

awe inspiring as an army set in battle array

and sustained not by hatred

but by the ardor of love.

Amen.
