The Memorare

It happens that tomorrow, on the feast of St. Bernard of Claivaux, the mellifluous doctor who penned the Memorare, there is a rather important meeting occuring which touches upon the well being of our lovely institute here. Perhaps some of you will charitably recite the Memorare and invoke the intercession of St. Bernard on behalf of the I.T.I.

REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to 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.
