Mary, Side Bar KoCQueen of the Knights (Rev. R. F. Hopkins) / Maria, Reina de los Caballeros (Rev. R. F. Hopkins)

Our Lady, Queen of the Knights, bless all the activities of our Order. Keep us true to the pledge to extend the kingship of thy Divine Son on earth. Through Thine intercession, win for us the grace ever to exemplify in our public and private lives, the virtues which should characterize those specially dedicated to the service of the heavenly court. Make us always aware that as your Knights we are constantly observed, our faith judged and our Order appreciated. Accept, O Mary, this renewed pledge of fealty and devotion of thy servants, the Knights of Columbus.

Nuestra Señora, Reina de los Caballeros, bendiga a todas las actividades de nuestra Orden.  Guardanos verdaderos al compromiso de extender al reinado de tu Hijo Divino en la Tierra. A través de Tú intercesión, gana para nosotros la gracia eterna para así ejemplificar en nuestra vida pública y privada las virtudes  que deberían caracterizar especialmente a aquellos dedicados al servicio de la corte celestial.  Haznos siempre atentos que al ser sus Caballeros, somos siempre observados, nuestra fé juzgada y nuestra Orden apreciada.  Acepte, O María, esta promesa renovada de vasallaje y devoción de tus sirvientes, los Caballeros de Colón.
