Oh Virgin, for whose blessing all of nature is blessed!
From the Orations of Saint Anselm, bishop
(Oration 52: PL 158, 955-956)


The sky, the astral bodies, the earth, the rivers, the day, the night, and all that is found subject to the power and service of man, congratulate themselves, O Lady, because, having lost their ancient nobility, they have now been, in a certain manner, resuscitated by you and gifted with a new and ineffable grace.

This is because all these things were dead as it were, having lost their congenital dignity of serving the dominion and utility of those who praised God, for which they were created; they were oppressed and disfigured by the abuse inflicted upon them by those serving idols, for which they were not created. Now they rejoyce as if they had come back to life, because they return to be submitted to the dominion of those who confess to God, and are embellished by their natural use.

It is as if they had leaped for joy for this new and priceless grace, by feeling that God Himself, their very creator, not only reigned over them in an invisible way, but also was seen amongst them, sanctifying them visibly with their employment. These goods, so great, originated from and through the blessed fruit of the sacred womb of the Virgin Mary.

For your plenitude of grace, what was in the country of the dead is gladdened by feeling liberated, and what is above the world is gladdened by feeling restored. In effect, by the glorious Son of your glorious virginity, all the just that died before the vivifying death of Christ are gladdened seeing themselves free of their captivity, and the angels congratulate themselves for the restoration of their city half in ruins.

O woman full and overflowing with grace, with the redundancy of your plenitude you mist, revive and reawaken all of creation! O blessed Virgin, brimming over with blessings, by whose blessing is blessed all of nature, not only the creature by the Creator, but also the Creator by the creature!

God gave Mary to His Son, the Only Begotten from His bosom, equal to Himself, whom He loved like Himself; and from Mary a son was made; not different, but the same, by good fortune and nature it was the same and only Son of God and of Mary. All of nature has been created by God, and God has been born from Mary. God created it all, and Mary gave birth to God. God, who made all things, made Himself from Mary; and in this manner He remade all He had already made. The One Who could make all things out of nothing, once profaned, did not want to remake them without Mary.

God, therefore, is father of all created things and Mary is mother of all recreated things. God is father of all creation; Mary is mother of the universal restoration. This is because God conceived the One by Whom all had been made, and Mary gave birth to the One by Whom all had been saved. God conceived the One without Whom absolutely nothing would exist, and Mary gave birth to the One without Whom nothing would be good.

In truth the Lord is with you, since He has made it so that all of nature would be greatly indebted to you and to Him.




PRAYER
Allmighty God, who, by the immaculate conception of the Virgin Mary, prepared a dignified abode for Your Son and, in preparation for the death of Jesus Christ, preserved His mother from all stain of sin, grant us also that, by the intercession of this most immaculate mother, we come to you clean of all guilt and sin. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit and is God, for ever and ever. Amen

OUR FATHER

Our Father, Who Art In Heaven
Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Liberate us from all temptation[*]
And deliver us from all evil. Amen



[*] Liberate us is in keeping with the original Latin text.
       God usually does not "lead us" to temptation
       (unless we are tested),
       but gives us the grace to overcome and/or resist it

HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among women,
And blessed is the fruit
Of thy womb, Jesus.
 
Holy Mary, Mary of God
Pray for us sinners
Now, and in the hour
Of our death. Amen

APOSTLE'S CREED

I believe in God, the Father Almighty Creator of Heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the
[work and grace of the] Holy Ghost,[*]
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into the Dead.[**]
On the third day, He rose again;
He ascended into Heaven,
And sits at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge
the living and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Ghost,[*]
The Holy Catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting. Amen


[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.
[**] the Dead: "inferi", the underworld or the dead in Latin.

DE PROFUNDIS

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplication.

If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities:
Lord, who shall abide it.
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and because of Thy law,
I have waited for Thee, O Lord.

My soul hath waited on His word:
my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning-watch even until night,
let Israel hope in the Lord.

For with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
from all her iniquities.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.

Let us pray:
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all
the faithful, we beseech Thee to grant
to the souls of Thy servants the remission
of their sins, so that by our prayers
they may obtain pardon for which they long.
O Lord, who lives and reigns,
world without end. Amen

May they rest in peace. Amen

PADRE NUESTRO

Padre Nuestro,
que estas en los Cielos
Santificado sea Tu Nombre;
Venga a nosotros tu Reino;
Hágase Tu Voluntad
en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día;
Perdona nuestras ofensas,
Como también nosotros
perdonamos a los que nos ofenden,
No nos dejes caer en la tentación,
y líbranos del mal. Amén

CREDO

Creo en Dios, Padre Todopoderoso,
Creador del cielo y de la tierra.
Creo en Jesucristo,
Su único Hijo, Nuestro Señor,
Que fue concebido por obra
y gracia del Espíritu Santo,
Nació de la Santa María Virgen;
Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato,
Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado,
Descendió a los infiernos,
Al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos,
Subió a los cielos
Y está sentado a la derecha de Dios,
Padre Todopoderoso.
Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar
a los vivos y a los muertos.

Creo en el Espíritu Santo,
La Santa Iglesia Católica,
La comunión de los santos,
El perdón de los pecados,
La resurrección de la carne
Y la vida eterna. Amén

Desde lo hondo a Ti grito, Señor; Señor,
escucha mi voz;
Estén Tus oidos atentos
a la voz de mi súplica.

Si llevas cuenta de los delitos, Señor,
¿quién podrá resistir?
Pero de ti procede el perdón,
y así infundes respeto.
Mi alma espera en el Señor.

Espera en su palabra;
mi alma aguarda al Señor,
más que el centinela la aurora.
Aguarda Israel al Señor.

Como el centinela la aurora;
porque del Señor viene la misericordia.
la redención copiosa;
y Él redimirá a Israel de todos sus delitos.

Gloria al Padre, al Hijo y al
Espíritu Santo,
como es desde el principio,
es ahora y será por los siglos de los siglos.
