Contents Salve, salutaris Victima
Hail, Saving Victim

This prayer was formerly recited for private devotion at the elevation during the Mass.

SALVE, salutaris Victima, pro me et omni humano genere in patibulo crucis oblata. Salve, pretiose sanguis, de vulneribus crucifixi Domini nostri Iesu Christi profluens, et peccata totius mundi abluens. Recordare, Domine, creaturae tuae, quam tuo pretioso sanguine redemisti. Amen.. HAIL, saving Victim, offered on the gibbet of the cross for me and for the whole human race. Hail, precious Blood, flowing from the wounds of our crucified Lord Jesus Christ and washing away the sins of the whole world. Remember, O Lord, Thy creature which Thou hast redeemed by Thy precious Blood. Amen.

From "My Prayer Book", Fr. Lasance, 1908, p 370. Ref. Pope Leo XIII, June 30, 1893.
