HAIL, O QUEEN OF HEAVEN ENTHRONED


“Hail, O Queen of heaven enthroned! 
Hail, by Angels Mistress owned! 
Root of Jesse, Gate of morn, 
Whence the world's true Light was born: 
Glorious Virgin, joy to thee, 
Loveliest whom in heaven they see: 
Fairest thou where all are fair, 
Plead with Christ our sins to spare.”

(An indulgence of 5 years. A plenary indulgence on the usual conditions, when this antiphon has been repeated daily for a month.) 

**The Raccolta is a book, published from 1807 to 1950, that listed Roman Catholic prayers and other acts of piety, such as novenas, for which specific indulgences were granted by Popes. In 1968 it was replaced by the Enchiridion Indulgentiarum, listing fewer specific prayers but including new general grants that apply to a wide range of prayerful actions.
