The Prayers of Union

These are said at the monthly meeting of the Sodality.

Sancta Maria, succurre miseris, juva pusillanimes, refove flebiles, ora pro populo, interveni pro clero, inter­cede pro monachorum choro, exora pro devoto femineo sexu; sentiant omnes tuum juvamen, quicumque devote cele­brant tuum sanctum nomen.
V. Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei genitrix.
R. Ut digni efficiamus promissionibus Christi.
Concede nos famulos tuos, quaesumus Domine Deus, perpetua mentis et corporis sanitate gaudere: et gloriosa beatae Mariae semper Virginis intercession, a praesenti liberari tristitia, et aeterna perfrui laetitia. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
Sanctissime Confessor Domini, monachorum Pater et Dux, Benedicte, intercede pro nostra omniumque salute.
V. Domine, Deus virtutum, converte nos.
R. Et ostende faciem tuam et salvi erimus.
Excita, Domine, in Ecclesia tua Spiritum, cui beatus Pater noster Benedictus Abbas servivit: ut, eodem nos repleti, studeamus amare quod amavit, et opere exercere quod docuit.
Da nobis, quaesumus, Domine, perservantem in tua voluntate famulatum, ut in diebus nostris et merito et numero populus tibi serviens augeatur. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. R. Amen.
O Holy Mary, give aid to the wretched, strengthen the faint­hearted, comfort the sorrowing, pray for the faithful, plead for the clergy, intercede for the choirs of monks, and pray for all good women vowed to God; may all experience thy help, who devoutly commem­orate thy holy name.
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worth of the promises of Christ.
Let us Pray.
Grant to us Thy servants, we beseech Thee, O Lord our God, to enjoy perpetual help of mind and body: and by the glorious intercession of Mary ever Virgin, to be delivered from present sorrows and to enjoy everlasting gladness. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Most holy Confessor of the Lord, Father and Guide of monks, Bene­dict, intercede for our salvation, and that of all.
V. O Lord, God of might, turn us to Thee.
R. And show Thy face, and we shall be saved.
Let us pray.
Raise up, O Lord, in Thy Church, the Spirit with which our holy Fa­ther, the Abbot Bene­dict, was animated: that, filled with the same spirit, we may strive to love what he loved, and to practise what he taught.
Grant us, we beseech thee, O Lord, persever­ing submission to Thy holy will: that in our days the people dedi­cated to Thy service may increase both in merit and in number. Through Christ our Lord. R. Amen.
