Our Morning Offering – 12 September – Mary!

Our Morning Offering – 12 September – The Memorial of The Most Holy Name of Mary

Mary!
Anonymous

Mary! Sweet name revered above,
And oh! How dear below!
In it are hope and holy love
And blessings from it flow.
Mary! What music in that sound,
Pure lips breathe it forth;
“Ave Maria,” sings earth around,
And souls look up to heaven.

Mary! Bright Angels speak the name
With rev’rence soft and low
And God Himself, ever the same,
His love for it did show.

Mary! To me that name recalls
The Queen who reigns above,
An angel sister in Heaven’s halls,
And one worthy of love.
Mary! Bright star of heavenly rest,
I love thy name and thee;
Mother purest, Virgin ever blest,
Look down and pray for me.
Amen

Hail Mary, the Angelic Salutation

The Hail Mary/Ave Maria

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Áve María, grátia pléna,
Dóminus técum.
Benedícta tū in muliéribus,
et benedíctus frúctus véntris túi, Iésus.
Sáncta María, Máter Déi,
óra pro nóbis peccatóribus,
nunc et in hóra mórtis nóstrae.

One Minute Reflection – 12 September – The Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary

One Minute Reflection – 12 September – The Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary

When the appointed time came, God sent His Son, born of a woman.….Galatians 4:4galatians 4 4

REFLECTION – “This most holy, sweet and worthy name was eminently fitted to so holy, sweet and worthy a virgin.   For Mary means a bitter sea, star of the sea, the illuminated or illuminatrix.   Mary is interpreted Lady.   Mary is a bitter sea to the demons;  to men she is the Star of the sea;  to the Angels she is illuminatrix and to all creatures she is Lady.” … St Bonaventure (1217-1274) Seraphic Doctorthis most holy sweet and worthy name - st bonaventure.2

PRAYER – Heavenly Father, assist us at all times to obtain a spirit of worthy penance, for our sins and that of all the world.   To the invocation of Your Divine Son, Jesus, we call on the intercession of His holy Mother to aid us on our pilgrimage.   With great affection and confidence, we honour the Holy Hearts and invoke the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, to be our constant source of pure assistance and succour.   Blessed Virgin, Most Holy Mother, pray for us. Amenblessed virgin holy mother pray for us
