IN HONOUR OF MARY THE MOTHER OF GOD
O Mary, Mary, temple of the Trinity. O Mary, bearer of fire. O Mary, dispenser of mercy. O Mary, restorer of human generation, because the world was repurchased by means of the sustenance that your flesh found in the Word. Christ repurchased the world with His Passion, and you with your suffering of mind and body.
O Mary, peaceful ocean. O Mary, giver of peace. O Mary, fruitful land. You, O Mary, are that new plant from which we have the fragrant flower of the Word, Only-begotten Son of God, because this Word was sown in you, O fruitful land. You are the land and the plant.
Today I ardently make my request, because it is the day of graces and I know that nothing is refused to you, O Mary. Today, O Mary, your land has generated the Saviour for us. O Mary, blessed are you among women throughout the ages! Amen
