center, in block, on banner: ave gracia plena dominus te; below image, in pen and brown ink: Natus ab eterno patre qui prodiit infans abnuit ille nichil nulla petita negat Candida fac igitur tu suffragare rogata daque pias mentes diua maria Vale (Born of the eternal father, he who came to the world as a small child rejects nothing, and he refuses nothing that is asked of him. So grant radiance to the petitioner's requests, support them, and give pious dispositions, divine Maria. Be well.)
