LEONINE PRAYERS

Customary prayers after Mass, ordered by Pope Leo XIII for all the faithful of the Roman Rite. They consisted of three Hail Marys, the "Hail Holy Queen," and the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel. A final petition to the Sacred Heart, to be said three times, was added by Pope St. Pius X. Formally abrogated in 1964, the Leonine Prayers ceased to be recited with the revision of the liturgy after the Second Vatican Council.
