St. Bernard of Clairvaux Important Updates

Welcome/Bienvenue to

St. Bernard of Clairvaux Catholic Elementary School

PEACE, LOVE, SERVICE, EXCELLENCE

THE MEMORARE

OF ST. BERNARD

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, and sought thy intercession was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother, to thee 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.”

This prayer was composed after the writings of St. Bernard, the first to give Mary her title of Notre Dame.

Souvenez-vous, ô très miséricordieuse Vierge Marie, qu'on n'a jamais entendu dire qu'aucun de ceux qui ont eu recours à votre protection, imploré votre assistance, réclamé votre secours, ait été abandonné. 
Animé d'une pareille confiance, ô Vierge des vierges, ô ma Mère, je cours vers vous et, gémissant sous le poids de mes péchés, je me prosterne à vos pieds.
O Mère du Verbe incarné, ne méprisez pas mes prières, mais accueillez-les favorablement et daignez les exaucer. Amen

Cette prière a été composée d'après les écrits de Saint Bernard, le premier à donner à Marie le titre de Notre-Dame.
