Morning prayer:

Today, on the second day of May, we honor Mary, Our Blessed Mother, as we pray the Memorare.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
