Ave Regina Caelorum

V. Hail, O Queen of heaven enthroned!
R. Hail, by Angels Mistress owned!
Root of Jesse, Gate of morn,
When the world's true Light was born:
Glorious Virgin, joy to thee,
Loveliest whom in Heaven they see:
Fairest thou where all are fair,
Plead with Christ our sins to spare.

Hymn of Praise Honoring St. Leo the Great

V. O happy Pontiff! Glorious Leo!
R. Thou hast been made companion of the faithful priests and martyrs; *
for thou wast most invincible in battle, *
and immovable as a tower and fortress of religion. *
Thou didst proclaim, with most perfect orthodoxy and wisdom, *
the unspeakable generation of Christ.

V. Heir to the See of Peter, the Prince of the Apostles,
R. Thou didst preside over the Church: *
thou hadst his spirit, *
and wast inflamed with zeal for the faith. *

V. Beaming with most bright light, thou, O holy Leo,
R. Didst admirably preach the ineffable and divine Incarnation, *
teaching the two natures, *
and the two wills of the Incarnate God.

V. Resplendent with the knowledge of divine truths,
R. Thou didst scatter on all sides the brightness of orthodoxy, *
and dispel the darkness of heresy. *
Departing this life, thou, O blessed one! *
now dwellest in the light that knows no setting.

V. Now O priest of Christ!
R. Thou art brightly decked with a crown of beauty. *
As a faithful priest, thou hast put on justice. *
Pray unceasingly for thy flock, *
now that thou hast entered into the admirable joy of Paradise.

Novena Prayer

V. O Eternal Shepherd,
R. Do Thou look favorably upon Thy flock, *
which we beseech Thee *
to guard and keep for evermore *
through the blessed Leo, Supreme Pontiff, *
who Thou didst choose to be chief shepherd of the whole Church. *
And by his mighty merits, *
glorious intercession, *
and solicitude care for the flock *
we beg of Thee to:

(Mention Special Intentions)

V. And govern Thy Church in Thy clemency, we beseech Thee, O Lord,
R. So that under the guidance of Thy mighty rule, *
she may enjoy greater freedom *
and abiding integrity of religion. *
Through Christ Our Lord.

V. In the Name of the Father... R. Amen.
