May all the Saints pray for us!
Sancta Dei Genetrix Virgo semper Maria, ora pro nobis:
Precibus quoque sanctorum apostolorum,
martyrum et confessorum atque sanctarum virginum,
suppliciter petimus ut a malis omnibus eruamur,
bonisque omnibus nunc et semper perfrui mereamur."
'Saviour of the world, save us all:
Holy Mother of God, Mary ever Virgin, pray for us:
We also humbly implore the prayers of the blessed apostles,
martyrs, confessors and holy virgins,
that we may be saved from every evil,
and merit to enjoy every good, now and forever.'
