MARIAN YEAR PRAYER

Official 1953-4 prayer given by Rome.


Enraptured by the splendor of your heavenly beauty,

and impelled by the anxieties of the world,

we cast ourselves into your arms,

O immaculate mother of Jesus and our mother,

Mary, confident of finding in your most loving heart

appeasement of our ardent desires

and a safe harbor from the tempests

which beset us on every side.

Though degraded by our faults

and overwhelmed by infinite misery,

we admire and praise the peerless richness

with which God has filled you

above every other mere creature,

from the first moment of your conception

until the day on which He crowned you Queen of the Universe.

O Crystal Fountain of Faith,

bathe our minds with the eternal truths.

O Fragrant Lily of all holiness,

captivate our heart with your heavenly perfume.

O conqueress of evil and death,

inspire in us a deep horror of sin

which makes the soul detestable to God and a slave to hell.

O well beloved of God,

hear the ardent cry which rises up from every heart

in this year dedicated to you (1954).

Bend tenderly over our aching wounds,

convert the wicked,

dry the tears of the afflicted and oppressed,

comfort the poor and humble,

quench hatreds,

sweeten harshesss,

safeguard the flower of purity in you,

protect the Holy Church,

make all men feel the attraction of Christian goodness.

In your name,

resounding harmoniously in Heaven

may they recognize that they are brothers

and that the nations are one family

upon which there may shine forth

the sun of a universal and sincere peace.

Receive O most sweet mother our humble supplications

and obtain for us that one day,

happy with you,

we may repeat before your throne

that hymn which is sung today around your altars...


"You are all beautiful O Mary,

you are the glory,

you are the joy,

you are the honor of our people."


Amen.
