Antiphon:

Let us praise Mary, who hath done so much for our good,
and let us say to her:
God hail thee, Mary,
Mother of Clemency,
Comfortress of the Afflicted,
Redemptress of Captives.
Thou art the glory of Jerusalem,
thou art the joy of Israel,
thou art the honour of our people.

R. Which belongs to thee from the beginning.

Let Us Pray

O God, Who by means of the Most Glorious Mother of Thy Divine Son,
didst enrich the Church with a new religious family
for the redemption of the faithful of Christ
from pagan oppression, grant, we beseech Thee,
that we may be freed from our sins
and from the bondage of the devil
by the merits and intercession of her
whom we devoutly venerate as the foundress
of so great a work.

R. Amen

Hail, Holy Queen...

(* The congregation referred to in this prayer is the Order of Our Lady of Ransom [the Mercedarians], now called the Order of Our Lady of Mercy. The Order of Our Lady of Ransom was founded by St. Peter Nolasco [c. 1189-1258] to ransom Christian slaves from the Moors. In addition to the usual three vows, the Mercedarians took a fourth vow: to give themselves up, if necessary, in exchange for a slave.)
