The Leonine Prayers

At Low Mass the Priest kneels on one of the the altar steps; with the congregation or with the server, he says the following prayers prescribed by Leo XIII (1884), and by Pius XI (1934) for the Church in Russia (10 years indulgence). Masses of a solemn character are exempt from this rule (Decree of June 20th, 1913) for example, Low Masses taking the place of a conventual or parochial High Mass: Masses during, before or immediately after which the Celebrant performs some other function, except during distribution of Holy Communion.

Salve Regina

Salve, Regína, mater misericórdiæ; vita, dulcédo et spes nostra, salve. Ad te clamámus éxsules fílii Hevæ. Ad te suspirámus geméntes et flentes in hac lacrimárum valle.

Hail Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us; and after this our exile, shew unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

sancte Michael archangele

Sancte Míchaël Archángele, defénde nos in prœlio; contra nequítiam et insídias diáboli esto præsídium. Imperet illi Deus, súpplices deprecámur: tuque, Princeps milítiæ cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos, qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo, divína virtúte in inférnum detrúde.
