Obedient to the invitation given in your own maternal words, O Virgin Immaculate of Lourdes, we hurry to your feet at the humble grotto, where you appeared to point out the way of prayer and penance to those gone astray and to dispense the graces and wonders of your supreme goodness to the sick.

O gracious Queen, accept the homage and the prayers
that the peoples and the nations, caught in bitter straits, trustingly raise to you.

O resplendent vision of Paradise, dispel from our minds the darkness of error by the light of faith!

O mystical garden of roses, comfort the broken hearts of people with the heavenly perfume of hope!

O inexhaustible fountain of saving waters, refresh with the floods of divine charity the hearts that are dry.
