Nativity of Mary

We fly to thy protection, O holy Mother of God, despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.

Is this quote from a longer version of the Memorare?

It's a translation of the ancient prayer Sub Tuum Praesidium. Google it by that name for info. Maybe the oldest Marian prayer (obviously the words in the Hail Mary are from scripture, but we're talking the prayer as such). Said often before or after undertaking some work.

This is how you know the "apparition" at Medjugorje is false: "It" claims that the date of Mary's Nativity is August 5, not September 8.
