PSALM XVII.

I Will love thee, Queen of heaven and of the earth, and I will invoke thy name in the midst of the nations.

Celebrate her praises afflicted hearts, and she will strengthen thee against thine enemies.

Distil upon us, O Lady, the favor that flows from thy breast: and may the milk of thy mercy appease the thirst of our children.

.Religious orders, honor her; for she is thy protectress and thy patroness.

Be thou our refuge, glorious Mother of Christ; for thou art the admirable support of all religion.

Glory, &c.
