Alma Redemptoris Mater (Antiphon)

English

Latin 

(Why Latin?)

Mother benign of our redeeming Lord, Star of the sea and portal of the skies, unto thy fallen people help afford - fallen, but striving still anew to rise. Thou who didst once, while wondering worlds adored, bear thy Creator, Virgin then as now, O by thy holy joy at Gabriel's word, pity the sinners who before thee bow.

Alma Redemptoris Mater, quae pervia caeli Porta manes, et stella maris, succurre cadenti, Surgere qui curat, populo: tu quae genuisti, Natura mirante, tuum sanctum Genitorem, Virgo prius ac posterius, Gabrielis ab ore Sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere. 

[Alma Redemptóris Mater, quæ pérvia cæli Porta manes, et stella maris, succúrre cadénti, Súrgere qui curat, pópulo: tu quæ genuísti, Natúra miránte, tuum sanctum Genitórem, Virgo prius ac postérius, Gabriélis ab ore Sumens illud Ave, peccatórum miserére.]

Ave Maris Stella

English

Latin 

(Why Latin?)

Hail thou star of the ocean God's own mother blest, Ever sinless Virgin, Gate of heavenly rest. Oh! By Gabriel's Ave, Uttered long ago, Eva's name reversing 'Stablish peace below. Break the captive's fetters, Light on blindness pour; All our ills expelling, Every bliss implore. Show thyself a Mother; may the Word divine, Born for us thine Infant, Hear our prayers through thine. Virgin all excelling, Mildest of the mild; Freed from guilt preserve us meek and undefiled. Keep our life all spotless, Make our way secure, Till we find in Jesus, Joy for evermore. Through the highest Heaven to the almighty Three, Father, Son and Spirit One same glory be. Amen. 

Ave maris stella, Dei Mater alma, Atque semper Virgo, Felix caeli porta. Sumens illud Ave Gabrielis ore, Funda nos in pace Mutans Hevae nomen. Solve vincla reis, Profer lumen caecis, Mala nostra pelle, Bona cuncta posce. Monstra te esse matrem, Sumat per te preces Qui pro nobis natus Tulit esse tuus. Virgo singularis, Inter omnes mitis, Nos culpis solutos, Mites fac et castos. Vitam praesta puram, Iter para tutum, Ut videntes Iesum Semper collaetemur. Sit laus Deo Patri, Summo Christo decus, Spiritui Sancto Tribus honor unus. Amen.

The Magnificat / Canticle of Our Lady

(From Lk. 1:46-55)

English

Latin 

(Why Latin?)

My soul doth magnify the Lord: And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior. Because He hath regarded the lowliness of His handmaid: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For He that is mighty hath done great things to me: and holy is His Name. And His mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear Him. He hath showed might with His arm: He hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart. He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the lowly. He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath received Israel His servant, being mindful of His mercy: As He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever.

Magnificat anima mea Dominum: Et exsultavit spiritus meus in Deo salutari meo. Quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae: ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes. Quia fecit mihi magna qui potens est: et sanctum nomen eius. Et misericordia eius a progenie in progenies timentibus eum. Fecit potentiam in brachio suo: dispersit superbos mente cordis sui. Deposuit potentes de sede, et exaltavit humiles. Esurientes implevit bonis: et divites dimisit inanes. Suscepit Israel puerum suum, recordatus misericordiae suae. Sicut locutus est ad patres nostros, Abraham et semini eius in saecula.

[Magníficat ánima mea Dóminum: Et exsultávit spíritus meus in Deo salutári meo. Quia respéxit humilitátem ancíllæ suæ: ecce enim ex hoc beátam me dicent omnes generatiónes. Quia fecit mihi magna qui potens est: et sanctum nomen eius. Et misericórdia eius a progénie in progénies timéntibus eum. Fecit poténtiam in bráchio suo: dispérsit supérbos mente cordis sui. Depósuit poténtes de sede, et exaltávit húmiles. Esuriéntes implévit bonis: et dívites dimísit inánes. Suscépit Israël púerum suum, recordátus misericórdiæ suæ. Sicut locútus est ad patres nostros, Abraham et sémini eius in sæcula.]

English

Latin

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.

Memorare, o piisima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo, quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia tua, implorantem auxilia, tua petentem suffragia esse derelictum. Ego tali animatus confidentia ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro; ad te venio; coram te gemens peccator assisto. Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere, sed audi propitia et exaudi. Amen.

Prayer to Our Lady After Holy Communion

O Mary, most holy Virgin Mother, lo, I have received thy well-beloved Son, Whom thou didst conceive in thy stainless womb, didst bring forth and suckle, and enfold in thy sweet embraces. See, humbly and lovingly I give back to thee the Son Whom it was all rapture and delight for thee to look upon, I offer Him to be clasped in thy arms, to be loved with all thy heart, and to be offered up to the Holy Trinity in the supreme homage of adoration, for thy honor and glory, and for my needs and those of all mankind. Most loving Mother, I beg thee to obtain for me forgiveness of all my sins, grace in abundance to serve Him more faithfully from now onward, and lastly, final perseverance, so that I may praise Him with thee forever and ever. Amen.

Stabat Mater Dolorosa

 

Reminder: Wording / capitalization / punctuation / etc. may vary

English

Latin 

(Why Latin?)

At the Cross her station keeping,

Stood the mournful Mother weeping,

Close to Jesus to the last.

Through her heart, His sorrow sharing,

All His bitter anguish bearing,

Now at length sword had passed.

O how sad and sore distressed

Was that Mother, highly blessed

Of the sole-begotten One!

Christ above in torment hangs,

She beneath beholds the pangs

Of her dying glorious Son.

Is there one who would not weep,

Whelmed in miseries so deep,

Christ's dear Mother to behold?

Can the human heart refrain

From partaking in her pain,

In that Mother's pain untold?

Bruised, derided, cursed, defiled,

She beheld her tender Child,

All with bloody scourges rent.

For the sins of His own nation,

Saw Him hang in desolation,

Till his spirit forth He sent.

O thou Mother! fount of love,

Touch my spirit from above,

Make my heart with thine accord.

Make me feel as thou hast felt;

Make my soul to glow and melt

With the love of Christ my Lord.

Holy Mother, pierce me through!

In my heart each wound renew

Of my Savior crucified.

Let me share with thee His pain,

Who for all my sins was slain,

Who for me in torment died.

Let me mingle tears with thee,

Mourning Him who mourned for me,

All the days that I may live.

By the Cross with thee to stay,

There with thee to weep and pray,

Is all I ask of thee to give.

Virgin of all virgins blest,

Listen to my fond request:

Let me share thy grief divine.

Let me, to my latest breath,

In my body bear the death

Of that dying Son of thine.

Wounded with His every wound,

Steep my soul till it hath swooned

In His very blood away.

Be to me, O Virgin, nigh,

Lest in flames I burn and die,

In His awful Judgment Day.

Christ, when Thou shalt call me hence,

Be Thy Mother my defense,

Be Thy Cross my victory.

While my body here decays,

May my soul Thy goodness praise,

Safe in Paradise with Thee.

Amen.

Stabat Mater dolorósa

Doléntem cum Fílio?

Fac, ut tecum lúgeam.

Fac, ut árdeat cor meum

In amándo Christum Deum,

Ut sibi compláceam.

Cordi meo válide.

Tui Nati vulneráti,

Tam dignáti pro me pati,

Pœnas mecum dívide.

Fac me tecum pie flere,

Crucifíxo condolére,

Donec ego víxero.

Iuxta Crucem tecum stare,

Et me tibi sociáre

In planctu desídero.

Virgo vírginum præclára,

Mihi iam non sis amára,

Fac me tecum plángere.

Fac, ut portem Christi mortem,

Passiónis fac consórtem,

Et plagas recólere.

Fac me plagas vulnerári,

Fac me Cruce inebriári,

Et cruóre Fílii.

Flammis ne urar succénsus,

Per te, Virgo, sim defénsus

In die iudícii.

Christe, cum sit hinc exíre,

Da per Matrem me veníre

Ad palmam victóriæ.

Quando corpus moriétur,

Fac, ut ánimæ donétur

Paradísi glória.

Amen.

Thou art full of grace, virtue and the heavenly gifts; thou art the most pure temple of the Holy Trinity. Thou art the treasurer and dispenser of God's mercies. Thy pure heart is full to overflowing with charity, sweetness and tenderness for us, poor sinners; wherefore we name thee our Lady of divine Pity. Hence it is with sure confidence that I present myself before thee, our most loving Mother, afflicted and straitened on every side, and I beseech thee to make me feel the love thou hast for me, by granting me..., if it is in conformity with the will of God and profitable to my salvation. Ah, I beseech thee, turn thy pure eyes upon me and upon all who are dear to me. Consider the cruel warfare waged by the world, the flesh and the devil against our souls, and see how many are perishing in the strife. Remember, most tender Mother, that we are thy children, purchased by the Precious Blood of thine only-begotten Son. Deign to pray for us without ceasing to the Blessed Trinity, that we may have the grace to be ever victorious over the devil, the world and all our perverse passions; that grace whereby the just may sanctify themselves ever more and more, sinners may be converted, heresies destroyed, unbelievers enlightened and the Jews brought to the light of faith. Ask this grace for us, dearest Mother, through the infinite goodness of God most high, the merits of thy most holy Son, the anxious care wherewith thou didst wait upon Him, the love with which thou didst cherish Him, the tears thou didst shed and the sorrows thou didst undergo during His Passion. Amen. [Source: Raccolta]
