Contents O Virgo et Mater Sanctissima
Most Holy Virgin and Mother
O VIRGO et Mater sanctissima, cuius animam in divini Filii tui passione doloris gladius pertransivit, et quae in gloriosa eius resurrectione perennem triumphantis laetitiam percepisti; impetra nobis supplicibus tuis, ita sanctae Ecclesiae adversitatibus Summique Pontificis doloribus consociari, ut optatis etiam consolationibus laetificari cum ipsis mereamur, in caritate et pace eiusdem Christi Domini nostri. Amen. MOST holy Virgin and Mother, whose soul was pierced by a sword of sorrow in the Passion of thy divine Son, and who in His glorious Resurrection wast filled with never-ending joy at His triumph; obtain for us who call upon thee, so to be partakers in the adversities of Holy Church and the sorrows of the Sovereign Pontiff, as to be found worthy to rejoice with them in the consolations for which we pray, in the charity and peace of the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

From the Raccolta #385. (Pius X, Rescript in his own hand, Jan. 25, 1906).
