O Maria, Mater misericordiæ, Mater et Filia Illius qui Pater est misericordiarum et Deus totius consolationis (1), Dispensatrix thesaurorum Filii Tui (2), Ministra Dei (3), Mater Summi Sacerdotis Christi, Sacerdos pariter et Altare (4), Sacrarium Immaculatum Verbi Dei (5), Magistra Apostolorum omnium et Discipulorum Christi (6), protege Pontificem Maximum, intercede pro nobis et pro sacerdotibus nostris ut Summus Sacerdos Christus Iesus conscentias nostras purificet, et digne ac pie ad sacrum convivium suum accedamus.

O Virgo Immaculata, quæ non modo dedisti nobis panem cœlestem Christum in remissionem peccatorum(7), sed es Tu ipsa Hostia acceptissima Deo litata (8), et gloria sacerdotum (9), quæque, teste Beatissimo Famulo S. Antonino, quamvis sacramentum Ordinis non acceperis, quidquid tamen dignitatis et gratiæ in ipso confertur, de hoc plena fuisti: unde merito Virgo Sacerdos (10) prædicaris; respice super nos et super sacerdotes Filii tui, salva nos, purifica nos, sanctifica nos, ut ineffabiles Sacramentorum thesauros sancte suscipiamus et æternam animarum nostrarum salutem consequi mereamur. Amen.
