The Queen of May

” Mary is the excellent masterpiece of the Most High, the knowledge and possession of which He has reserved to Himself. Mary is the admirable Mother of the Son, who took pleasure in humbling and concealing her during her life in order to favor her humility, calling her by the name of “woman” (In.2:4; 19:26), as if she were a stranger, although in His heart He esteemed and loved her above all angels and all men. Mary is the “sealed fountain” (Cant. 4:12), the faithful spouse of the Holy Ghost, to whom He alone has entrance. Mary is the sanctuary and the repose of Holy Trinity, where God dwells more magnificently and more divinely than in any other place in the universe, not excepting His dwelling between the Cherubim and Seraphim. Nor is any creature, no mater how pure, allowed to enter into that sanctuary except by a great and special privilege.”

Rugaciune

Craiasa alegandu-te,

Ingenunchiem rugandu-te,

Inalta-ne, ne mantuie

Din valul ce ne bantuie;

Fii scut de intarire

Si zid de mantuire,

Privirea-ti adorata

Asupra-ne coboara,

O, Maica prea curata

Si pururea fecioara,

Marie!

 

 

Noi, ce din mila sfantului

Umbra facem pamantului,

Rugamu-ne-ndurarilor

Luceafarului marilor;

Asculta-a noastre plangeri,

Regina peste ingeri,

Din neguri te arata,

Lumina dulce, clara,

O, Maica prea curata

Si pururea fecioara,

Marie!
