Sub tuum praesidium

Sub tuum praesidium

“Sub tuum praesidium confugimus, Sancta Dei Genitrix; nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus nostris; sed a periculis cunctis libera nos semper, Virgo gloriosa et benedicta.”

We fly to thy patronage,
O holy Mother of God.
Despise not our petitions
in our necessities,
but deliver us always
from all dangers
O glorious and blessed Virgin.

“The first known Marian invocation goes back to the third century and begins with the words: “We fly to thy patronage (Sub tuum praesidium), O holy Mother of God…”.” (Bl. Pope John Paul II, 11/5/97)
