O Mary,Immaculate Mother, gather us all into the Wounds of Jesus as in a safe shelter…

Posted on December 31, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

O Mary, Sorrowful Mother, you want to bring
everyone of us to recognize your Son Jesus Crucified
as our only Savior;
unite our lives to His Sacrifice,
offer them through your hands
to God the Father.
Gather us all in the Wounds of Jesus
as in a safe shelter.
We rely upon you to lead us,
animated with hope,
to the foot of the Cross,
the standard of Holy Mother Church
and font of all graces.
O Mary, Immaculate Mother of God,
the Holy Wounds of your Son Jesus
are eternally engraved in your Heart;
grant us that for us also,
His Sacred Wounds
be always deeply imprinted in ours.
Most Loving Father, I offer You my little heart,
united to the cruel Passion of Your Son,
His transfixed Heart,
His Sacred Head crowned with thorns,
His Holy Face marred,
His Most precious Blood,
the Wounds of His Hands,
of His Feet, of His Shoulder
and of all His dislocated
and battered Body.
Eternal Father, receive this infinite offering
and make us zealous and faithful
companions of Jesus Crucified
and of Mary Immaculate.
O my Jesus, through the merits of
your Holy Wounds we beseech You,
inflame with the zeal of your love
all priests and religious,
all missionaries and families,
and all the faithful;
so that, united as one,
we will triumph over the Churches enemies,
all for the glory of the Most Holy Trinity.
Amen.

Stella Matutina

Posted on December 31, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

This is a pilgrim Marian hymn from Paderborn, Germany. As no translation has proved satisfactory, we are giving the Latin version.

1. Stella matutina, Ave Maria! Laus tibi et vita, Nostra Domina!
Refrain: Maria, Mater Dei Nos omnes adjuva!
2. Rosa sine spina, Ave Maria! A Deo electa, Nostra Domina! — Refrain
3. Perduc nos ad Christum, Ave Maria! Filium dilectum! Nostra Domina! — Refrain

Stella Matutina Morning Star
This scene tells about the combat between light and darkness. Eventually, morning is breaking. The giant rooster announces the rising sun, while the roaring lion takes flight and the incubi of the night (frightening bats and dragons) sail away in a dark cloud. Taking advantage of the first light of day a ship leaves harbor. The lemma proclaims Jesus’ message to the churches: “I am the root and offspring of David, the bright morning star” (Revelation 22:16). He is the promised one seen by the prophet Balaam. “A star shall advance from Jacob.” However, in this illustration this expression decorates the radiating star with the bust of Mary, which dominates the page.
“Stella matutina,” also known as “stella Marina” and “Lux matutina” (12C), and as “stella maris” used by Saint Bernard to explain the meaning of the name “Mary,” suggests and announces the rising sun of justice, Jesus Christ (Mal. 4:3). The glory of her light is but light from eternal light, and praise of the never-ending light of God’s love for us.

Preparing the ear of the spirit for the voice of God – St. Bernard

Posted on December 31, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

“If you are preparing the ear of the spirit for the voice of God, a voice sweeter than honey and the honeycomb, then flee external cares; so that when your inner sense is disentangled and free, you may say with the prophet Samuel, ‘speak Lord, for your servant is listening’ (I Kings 3:10). For the voice of God does not speak amid the din and bustle of the world, nor is it heard in any public gathering. Rather secret counsel seeks to be heard also in secret. And so because of this, happiness will be given to us if we listen to God in solitude.”

St. Bernard
