Prayers to Our Blessed Mother / Gebede tot Onse Liewe Vrou

"In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary. Let not her name depart from your lips; never suffer it to leave your heart. And that you may more surely obtain the assistance of her prayer; neglect not to walk in her footsteps."

"With her for (your) guide, you shall never go astray; while invoking her, you shall never lose heart; So long as she is in your mind, you are safe from deception; while she holds your hand, you cannot fall; under her protection you have nothing to fear; if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary; if she shows you favor, you shall reach the goal."    ~By Saint Bernard


The Hail Mary:



Die Wees Gegroet Maria: 


Hail Mary, full of grace, 

The Lord is with thee;

Blessed art thou amongst women,

And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary,

Mother of God,

Pray for us sinners,

Now and at the hour of death. 


Wees gegroet, Maria, vol genade,

Die Here is met u.

Geseën is u onder die vroue

En geseën is Jesus die vrug van u skoot.

Heilige Maria, 

Moeder van God,

Bid vir ons sondaars,

Nou en in die uur van ons dood.


The Memorare: 

Die Memorare: 

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, 

that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, 

implored thine aid, 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.  



O genadevolle Maagd Maria, 

dit het nog nooit gebeur dat enigiemand wat u om beskerming, 

hulp of bemiddeling gesmeek het, sonder enige bystand gelaat is nie.

O Maagd der maagde, besiel deur hierdie oortuiging wend ek myself vol vetroue tot u. 

Voor u staan ek in sonde en verdriet. 

O Moeder van die Vleesgeworde Woord, 

verag nie my smekinge nie, 

maar verhoor my in u genade.
