"Pray for us O' Holy Mother of God that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ!"
Posted by Picasa
As I write this Hurricane Rita begins to pound the Gulf Coast. I ask you all to pray for those in her wake, for all families, all those who could not make it out in time and for the whole world. I think the ancient prayer Ave Maria Stella is especially appropriate right now and so I have added it to this particular posting. May Our Lady pray for all those affected and for us all and keep us and lead us to Her Divine Son -The Divine Mercy- Our Lord Jesus Christ! Mary, Mother of Mercy and Our Lady of Good Success pray for us!
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!

"Hail thou star of ocean
Portal of the sky
Ever virgin Mother
Of the Lord Most High.

O! by Gabriel's Ave,
Uttered long ago,
Eva's name reversing,
Established peace below

Break the captives' fetters,
Light on blindness pour,
All our ills expelling,
Every bliss implore

Show thyself a Mother,
Offer Him our sighs,
Who for us incarnate
Did not thee despise

Virgin of all virgins
To thy shelter take us,
Gentlest of the gentle
Chaste and gentle make us

Still, as on we journey,
Help our weak endeavor,
Till with thee and Jesus
We rejoice forever

through the highest heaven,
To the almighty Three
Father, Son, and Spirit,
One same glory be.Amen."
