"Salve Regina"
Hail Holy Queen
"Salve Regina" (Hail Holy Queen) - These are the first words and title of the best known and perhaps most frequently sung antiphon of Our Lady. The Salve Regina was the first hymn to have been sung in the New World by the sailors accompanying Christopher Columbus in 1492. Just as sailors in the Middle Ages sang the Salve at the end of the day, so too did the laity join monks and friars in an evening Salve. This hymn to Our Lady has been greatly loved since the Middle Ages. In it, Mary is praised as the Mother of Mercy, an advocate who will help the faithful through the exile of earthly life.
