Comments from Readers on the Rosary

St. Michael Chaplet from Tigga Wild

I grew up saying the Memorare after the rosary except during the Easter Season, when we said the Salve Regina (Hail, Holy Queen). I suppose this was in imitation of Compline, were the Salve is only sung in Eastertide.

Now, I am hearing more and more people and CDs with the Salve.

In the parishes in Dublin, we still said the Memorare last year.

Comments welcomed from rosary experts, please

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee 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.
