A Special Expression of Love and Honor to Our Lady

 French Holy Card of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary

 

Third Saturday of Lent

 

Extracted from "The Liturgical Year", 

By The Very Rev. Dom Prosper Guéranger, 

Saturday, Third Week of Lent, pp. 324-25,  1868

 

Let us offer to Mary, as we are accustomed to do 

on the last day of each week, some special expression
of our love. Let us say, in her honour, the following
Sequence, which is taken from the ancient Roman-
French Missals.


SEQUENCE.


Let this be our joyous praise
of Mary, - true and fervent
love.

 

Let the cry of our heart, as 

it sings in the Mother's ho-
nour, be presented to her Son
as a tribute of love.


Hail thou that broughtest
Salvation to men! Virgin,
and Queen of Virgins! to thee,
after God, are due praise and
honour.


Thou art the fair Rose and
Lily, whose fragrance drew
the Son of God to assume our
human nature.


Hail overflowing fount of
Mercy! Hail true balm of
the wounded heart!


Thou art the ministress of
pardon, the flame richly fed
with grace, the Queen of
matchless glory.


Hail spotless Mirror of
purity, that givest beauty to
the holy Church of God!


Where thou art, there can
be no sadness, for thou art
the Spring-time of joy ; thou
art the bond of peace and con-
cord.


O happy Mother ! use a Mo-
ther's right; and bid thy Son,
our Redeemer, forgive us our
sins.


These are the gifts we ask of
thee: firmness of faith, works
available to salvation, and in
the evening of life, a happy
death. Amen.
