EVENING PRAYER - September 10th

Hail to the Queen who reigns above,
Mother of clemency and love,
Hail, thou, our hope, life, sweetness;
Eve's banished children cry to thee

We from this wretched vale of tears
Send sighs and groans unto thy ears;
O, then, sweet Advocate, bestow.
A pitying look on us below.

After this our exile, let us see
Our blessed Jesus, born of thee.
O merciful, O pious Maid,
O gracious Mary, lend thine aid.

Roman Breviary, Final Antiphon of the Blessed Virgin after Pentecost,
(Attr. to Hermann Contractus, 1013-1054)

  1. New Living Translation-1st Timothy 2:5
    "For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus."

  2. words cannot serve me with a comment for all - my heart alone filled with the divine presence swells with love beyond all understanding and emites a slight glimmer of the reality yet to come in HIS abode - blessed are we who are and will be wrapped in the purist love given freely in love by love itself - I pray to hasten my blessing so others may come to taste and desire the reality of life - this one now & in the future forever.
