The Memorare is my absolute favorite prayer. I vividly remember being taught to pray it-and memorize it, along with numerous other prayers-in the 7th grade at St. Clare School in Clifton, NJ, by Miss Joan Collins. I fell in love with the words and meaning and have always recited it during my own times of reflection and prayer. It's so comforting.
