Queen of the most Holy Rosary, in these times of such brazen impiety, manifest they power with the signs of thine ancient victories, and from thy throne, whence thou dost dispense pardon and graces, mercifully regard the Church of the signs of thine ancient victories, and from thy throne, whence thou dost dispense pardon and graces, mercifully regard the Church of thy Son, His Vicar on earth,, and every order of clergy and laity, who are sore oppressed in the mighty conflict. Do thou, who art the powerful vanquisher of all heresies, hasten the hour of mercy, even though the hour of God’s justice is every day provoked by the countless sins of men. For me who am the least of men, kneeling before thee in supplication, do thou obtain the grace I need to live righteously upon earth and to reign among the just in heaven, the while in company with all faithful Christians throughout the world, I salute thee and acclaim thee as Queen of the most Holy Rosary: 

Queen of the most Holy Rosary, pray for us.

The faithful who devoutly visit the Pompeian image of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, pray for us.

I - A Visit

The faithful who devoutly visit the Pompeian image of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, exposed for veneration in some church , public or semi-public oratory (this last for those who may lawfully use it), may gain:

An indulgence of 3000 days; A plenary indulgence on the 8th day of May and on the Feast of the Holy Rosary, if in addition, they make their confession, receive Holy Communion and pray for the intentions of His Holiness (Brief, July 20, 1925).



I. O august Queen of victories, O Virgin ruler of paradise, at whose powerful name the heavens rejoice and hell trembles for fear, O glorious Queen of the most Holy Rosary, all of us, thy highly favored children who thy goodness hath chosen to raise a temple to thee at Pompeii in this our day, here humbly kneeling at thy feet, on this most solemn day of the Feast of thy fresh triumphs on earth over false gods and devils, pour forth with tears the deepest affection of our hearts, and with the confidence of sons we show our miseries to thee.

Ah, from that throne of mercy where thou art seated in queenly state, turn thy pitying gaze upon us, O Mary, and upon our families, upon Italy, upon Europe and upon the universal Church do thou have compassion upon us by reason of the miseries whereby we are encompassed, and the tribulations that make life bitter for us. See, dear Mother, how many perils to body and soul surround us, what calamities and addiction oppress us! O Mother, stay the arm of thine unheeded Son’s justice and win the hearts of sinners by they mercy; for they are our brethren and thy children, for whom the Precious Blood of Jesus was shed and thine own most fertile heart was pierced by the sword of sorrow. Show unto all men this day that thou art indeed the Queen of peace and forgiveness. Hail holy Queen, etc.

2. Too true it is, alas, that we, although we are they children, have been among the first to begin to crucify Jesus afresh in our hearts by sin and to renew the piercing of thy tender heart. Yes, we confess it, we deserve the sharpest scourges of God’s anger. None the less do thou remember how, on Calvary’s heights, thou didst gather up the last drops of the Precious Blood and didst receive the final testament of the dying Savior. And that testament of a God, sealed by the Precious Blood of the God-Man, proclaimed thee our Mother, the Mother of sinners. Wherefore, just as thou art our Mother, so thou are likewise our advocate and our hope to thee do we sigh, and stretch forth our hands in supplication, crying out for mercy.

Let compassion move thee, good Mother, compassion for us, for our souls, for our families, our relations and our friends, for our departed brethren, and above all, for our enemies and for the many should who call themselves Christians and who, nevertheless, continue to wound the loving Heart of thy dear Son. We ask this day with tears of mercy, mercy upon the nations that have gone astray, upon the whole of Europe, upon the entire world, that all may return in penitence to they heart. Have mercy upon them all, O Mother of mercy!

3. What will it cost thee, O Mary, to hear our prayer? What will it cost thee to save us? Hath not Jesus placed in thy hands all the treasures of His grace and mercy? Thou sittest, crowned as a queen, at the right hand of thy Son, shining with undying, glory, above all the choirs of Angels. Thy dominion reaches as far as the heavens, and to thee the earth and all creatures dwelling thereon are subject. Thy dominion reaches even down to the abyss of hell, and thou alone, O Mary, dost save us from the hands of Satan. Thou art omnipotent through grace; thou, therefore, canst save us. But if thou sayest that thou art unwilling to help us because we are ungrateful children and underserving of Thy protection, at least do tell us to whom we must go to be delivered from so many evils. Ah! no, thy motherly heart will not suffer thy children to be lost. The divine Child whom we see upon thy knees and the mystic chaplet in thy hand inspire us with confidence that we shall be heard. We put all our trust in thee; we cast ourselves at thy feet; we surrender ourselves, like helpless children, to the embrace of the tenderest of mother. Today, yes, this very day, we look to receive from thee the graces for which we sigh.

Hail, holy Queen, etc.

Let us ask a blessing from Mary.

One last grace do we beg of thee, our Queen, and thou canst not deny it on this most solemn day. Grant unto all of us thy abiding love and, in a special manner, thy maternal blessing. No, we will not rise from before thy feet this day until thou bless us. At this very moment, O Mary, bless us. At this very moment, O Mary, bless the Supreme Pontiff. To the former laurels of thy chaplet, to the ancient triumphs of thy Rosary, whence thou art called the Queen of Victories, add this favor also: dear Mother, give victory to the causes of religion and peace to human society. Bless our Bishop and priest, especially those who are zealous for the honor of thy sanctuary. Finally bless all who are associated with thy new shrine at Pompeii, and all who ciltivate and spread the devotion to thy most holy Rosary.

O blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain that binds us to God, bond of love that makes us one with the Angels, tower of salvation amid the attacks of hell, safe harbor in the universal shipwreck, we shall never forget thee. Thou shalt be our consolation in the hour of death’s agony, thine shall be the last kiss of our ebbing life. The last whisper of our dying lips shall be thy sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary in the Vale of Pompeii, our dearest Mother, only refuge of sinners, sovereign comforter of the sorrowful. Be thou everywhere blessed, now and forever, on earth and in heaven. Amen.

Hail, holy Queen, etc.

An indulgence of 7 years. A plenary indulgence under the usual conditions (Brief, July 20, 1925; S. P. Ap., March 18, 1932) . III IMPETRATORY PRAYERS FOR A NOVENA OF A TRIDUUM

A Preparatory Prayer to St. Catherine.

O Saint Catherine, of Siena, my guardian and mistress, thou who from heaven dost assist thy clients when they recite Mary’s Rosary, assist me at this hour and vouchsafe to join with me in this Novena to the Queen of the Rosary who hath set the throne of her graces in the Vale of Pompeii, so that through thine intercession, I may obtain the grace that I desire. Amen.

V O God, make speed to save me. R O Lord, make haste to help me. V Glory be, etc. R As it was, etc. 1. O Virgin immaculate and Queen of the Rosary, in these days of dead faith, and triumphant impiety, thou hast been pleased to set up thy throne as Queen and Mother, upon the ancient site of Pompeii, the dwelling place of pagans long since dead. And from the place where once men worshiped false gods and demons, thou, as Mother of divine graces, dost in these our times scatter everywhere the treasures of heavenly mercies. Ah, from that throne where thou reignest as Queen of mercy, turn, dear Mother upon me also thine eyes of mercy, and have pity on me who have such great need of thy assistance. Show thyself to me, as to son many others, a true Mother of mercy: “Show thyself a Mother”; while with all my heart I salute thee and call upon thee as my Sovereign and Queen of the most holy Rosary.

Hail, holy Queen, etc.

2. Humbly bending at the foot of thy throne, O great and glorious Lady, my soul venerates thee in the midst of the groans and anguish that oppress me beyond measure. In spite of the trials and tribulations wherewith I am encompassed, I raise my eyes with confidence to thee who hast deigned to choose for thy earthly habitation the fields of poor and forsaken country folk. And there, facing the city and amphitheater devoted to heathen pleasures, where now reign silence and ruins, thou, as the Queen of Victories, hast lifted up thy mighty voice to summon from Italy and from every quater of the Catholic world, thy devoted children to build thee a shrine in thine honor. Ah, be thou moved to pity for this soul of mine which lies trampled in the mire. Have mercy on me, dear Lady, have mercy on me, for I am filled beyond measure with misery and humiliation. Thou who art the Help of Christian, draw me from the tribulations where in I am miserably entangled. Thou who art our life, triumph over the death which threatens my soul in these dangers to which I find myself exposed; give me peace again, tranquility, love and salvation.

Hail, holy Queen, etc.

3. Ah, they very though that so many have been blessed only because they had recourse to thee with confidence, inspires me with fresh hope and courage to call upon thee to come to my assistance. Thou didst once promise Saint Dominic that whosoever desired the grace of God should obtain it by means of thy Rosary: now I, with rosary in hand, call upon thee, my Mother, to keep thy maternal promises. Nay, thou thyself in these our times dost work never-ceasing wonders to call thy children to honor thee in thy shrine of Pompeii. Be thou pleased, therefore, to wipe away our tears and assuage our sorrows! With my heart upon my lips and with lively faith, I call upon thee and invoke thee: my Mother, dearest Mother, Mother fairest ,Mother gentlest, help me! Mother and Queen of the holy Rosary of Pompeii, delay not to stretch forth thy mighty hand to save me, for delay, as thou seest, will bring me down to ruin.

Hail, holy Queen, etc.

4. To whom else can I have recourses, if not to thee, who art the solace of the wretched, the comfort of the desolate, the consolation of the afflicted? I confess it to thee, my soul is exceeding sorrowful, weighed down as it is by unworthy to receive thy favors. But art not thou the hope of the hopeless, the great mediatrix between man and God, our powerful advocate at the throne of the most High, and the refuge of sinners? Ah, do thou only say the word in my behalf to thy divine Son, and He will hear and answer thee. Ask Him, then, O Mother, for this favor, of which I stand so much in need.... Thou alone canst obtain it for me; thou art my only hope, my consolation, my sweetness, my whole life. Such is my hope. Amen.

Hail, holy Queen, etc.

5. O Virgin and Queen of the Holy Rosary, thou art the Daughter of our heavenly Father, the Mother of God the Son, and the Bride of the Spirit with His sevenfold gifts. Thou canst obtain all things from the ever blessed Trinity, thou must therefore obtain for me this favor which is so necessary for me, provided that it be no obstacle to my eternal salvation...; I ask it of thee through thy Immaculate Conception, thy divine Motherhood, thy joys, thy sorrows and thy triumphs; I ask it of thee through the Heart of thy dear Jesus, and the nine months wherein thou didst carry Him in thy bosom, the hardships of His life, His bitter passion, His death on the Cross, His most holy Name, the shedding of through thine own most sweet heart and thy glorious name, O Mary, thou who art the star of the sea, our mighty mistress, the sea of sorrow, the gate of heaven, and the Mother of every grace. In thee I put my trust; from thee I hope for all things. It is thy task to save me. Amen.

V Make me worthy to praise thee, O sacred Virgin; R Give me strength against thine enemies. V Pray for us, O Queen of the most Holy Rosary,

R That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray.

O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, hath purchased for us the rewards of everlasting life; grant, we beseech Thee, that we, who meditate upon these mysteries of the most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, may both imitate what they contain, and attain to what they promise. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Hail Mary, etc.

Prayer to St. Domonic and St. Catherine O holy Priest of God and glorious Patriarch, Saint Dominic, thou who was the friend, the well-beloved son and the confidant of the Queen of Heave, and didst work so many miracles by the power of the Holy Rosary; and thou, Saint Catherine of Sinena, first daughter of this Order of the Rosary, and powerful mediator at Mary’s throne with the Heart of Jesus, with whom thou didst exchange thy heart; do you, my beloved Saints, have regard to my necessities and pity the sad condition in which I now find myself. On earth you opened your hearts to the miseries of your fellow-men and your hands were strong to help them; now in heaven your charity hath not grown less nor hath your power waned. Pray, ah, pray for me to the Mother of the Rosary and to her divine Son, for I have great confidence that through your assistance I shall obtain the favor I so much desire. Amen.
