The "Three O'Clock Prayer" is a traditional Marianist prayer recited at our brother and sister schools across the country. We at Vianney pray it together at the close of every school day.
We gather in spirit at the foot of the Cross
with your Mother and the disciple whom you loved.
We ask your pardon for our sins
which are the cause of your death.
We thank you for remembering us
in that hour of salvation
and for giving us Mary as our Mother .
Holy Virgin, take us under your protection
and open us to the action of the Holy Spirit.
Saint John, obtain for us
the grace of taking Mary into our lives, as you did,
and of assisting her in her mission.
May the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit
be glorified in all places
through the Immaculate Virgin Mary.
The "Angelus" is recited before lunch each school day.
The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary
And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Behold the handmaid of the Lord
Be it done unto me according to Thy word.
And the Word was made Flesh
And dwelt among us.
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God
that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ
Let us pray
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts; that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection, through the same Christ Our Lord.
