The Hail Holy Queen

You can teach the Hail Holy Queen, with the Rosary or when studying about the prayers after Mass.

It is said at the end of the Rosary and is easy to learn with practice. Children learn it easily especially they pray the Rosary daily.

Our Rosary videos (links below) have the words printed so that you can say the prayers with the video even if you haven't learned the prayers yet.

Catholics pray this prayer at the end of the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass during the prayers that Pope Leo XIII requested be added after the Last Gospel. They also pray it at the end of the Most Holy Rosary.

If God is the Creator of Heaven and earth, and if she is His Most Holy Mother, then it follows that she is the Queen of Heaven and earth. This prayer addresses her as Queen.

One of the best known Catholic hymns goes by this same title, too, and is sung on her feast days, May crownings, processions, and during the month of May and October at the Mass and other Catholic liturgical events.

The Hail Holy Queen Prayer

Hail Holy Queen PrayerHail Holy Queen

New Saint Joseph Baltimore Catechism No. 1, p. 9

Hail Holy Queen! Mother of Mercy,
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 valley of tears.

Turn, then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary,
Pray for us O Holy Mother of God,
That we may be made worthy
Of the promises of Christ. Amen.
