"For see, the winter is past,
the rains are over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth,
the time of pruning the vines has come,
and the song of the dove is heard in our land.
The fig tree puts forth its figs,
and the vines, in bloom, give forth fragrance.
Arise, my beloved, my beautiful one,
"O my dove in the clefts of the rock,
in the secret recesses of the cliff,
Let me see you,
let me hear your voice,
For your voice is sweet,
and you are lovely."
Song of Songs 2:10b-14
"May you be blessed, my daughter, by God most
high, beyond all women on earth; and may the Lord
God be blessed, the Creator of heaven and earth.:
"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come
back again and take you to myself, so that where I
am you also may be."
Her divine Son gave Her his blessing and in the presence
of the courtiers of heaven spoke to Her these words : "My
dearest Mother, whom I have chosen for my dwelling
place, the hour is come in which thou art to pass from the
life of this death and of the world into the glory of my
Father and mine, where thou shalt possess the throne
prepared for thee at my right hand and enjoy it through
all eternity. And since, by my power and as my Mother, I
have caused thee to enter the world free and exempt from
sin, therefore also death shall have no right or permission
to touch thee at thy exit from this world. If thou wishest
not to pass through it, come with Me now to partake of
my glory, which thou has merited."
The most prudent Mother prostrated Herself at the feet of
her Son and with a joyous countenance answered: "My Son
and my Lord, I beseech Thee let thy mother and thy servant
enter into eternal life by the common portal of natural
death, like the other children of Adam. Thou, who art my
true God, hast suffered death without being obliged to do
so; it is proper that, as I have followed Thee in life, so I
follow Thee also in death." Christ the Savior approved of
the decision and the sacrifice of his most blessed Mother,
and consented to its fulfillment. Then all the angels began
to sing in celestial harmony some of the verses of the
Canticles of Solomon and other new ones.
She pronounced those words of her Son on the Cross : "Into thy
hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit." Then She closed her
virginal eyes and expired. The sickness which took away her life
was love, without any other weakness or accidental intervention
of whatever kind. She died at the moment when the divine power
suspended the assistance, which until then had counteracted the
sensible ardors of her burning love of God.
Then this most pure Soul passed from her virginal body to be
placed in boundless glory, on the throne at the right hand of her
