Heart of Mary
Hail Mary! Mother of God the Son.
Hail Mary! Spouse of the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary! Temple of the Most Blessed Trinity.
Hail Mary! Pure Lily of the Effulgent Trinity.
Hail Mary! Celestial Rose of the Ineffable Love of God.
Hail Mary! Virgin pure and humble, of whom the King of
heaven willed to be born and with thy milk to be nourished.
Hail Mary! Virgin of Virgins,
Hail Mary! Queen of Martyrs, whose soul a sword transfixed.
Hail Mary! Lady most holy! unto whom all power in
heaven and earth is given.
Hail Mary! My Queen and my Mother!
My Life, my Sweetness and my Hope,
Hail Mary! Mother Most Amiable,
Hail Mary! Mother of Divine Love,
Hail Mary! Immaculate! Conceived Without Sin!
Hail Mary! Full of Grace! The Lord is with Thee!
Blessed art thou among women!
And blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus!
Blessed be thy spouse, Saint Joseph,
Blessed be thy father, Saint Joachim,
Blessed be thy mother, Saint Anne,
Blessed be thy guardian, Saint John,
Blessed be thy holy angel, Saint Gabriel,
Glory be to God the Father, Who chose thee,
Glory be to God the Son, Who loved thee,
Glory be to God the Holy Spirit, Who espoused thee.
O Glorious Virgin Mary,
may all people love and praise thee. Amen
From a sermon by Saint Laurence Justinian, Bishop
(Sermo 8, in festo Purificationis B.M.V.: Opera, 2,
Venetiis 1751, 38-39)
MARY STORED UP ALL THESE THINGS IN HER HEART.
While Mary contemplated all she had come to know through
reading, listening and observing, she grew in faith, increased
in merits, and was more illuminated by wisdom and more consumed
by the fire of charity. The heavenly mysteries were opened to her,
and she was filled with joy; she became fruitful by the Spirit,
was being directed toward God, and watched over protectively
while on earth.
So remarkable are the divine graces that they elevate one from the
lowest depths to the highest summit, and transform one to a greater
holiness. How entirely blessed was the mind of the Virgin which,
through the indwelling and guidance of the Spirit, was always and
in every way open to the power of the Word of God. She was not led
by her own senses, nor by her own will; thus she accomplished
outwardly through her body what wisdom from within gave to her faith.
It was fitting for divine Wisdom, which created itself a home in the
Church, to use the intervention of the most blessed Mary in guarding
the law, purifying the mind, giving an example of humility and providing
a spiritual sacrifice.
Imitate her, O faithful soul. Enter into the deep recesses of your heart
so that you may be purified spiritually and cleansed from your sins. God
places more value on good will in all we do than on the works themselves.
Therefore, whether we give ourselves to God in the work of contemplation
or whether we serve the needs of our neighbor by good works, we accomplish
these things because the love of Christ urges us on. The acceptable offering
of the spiritual purification is accomplished not in a man-made temple but
in the recesses of the heart where the Lord Jesus freely enters. Amen
Imitate her, O faithful soul. Enter into
the deep recesses of your heart so that
you may be purified spiritually and cleansed
from your sins.
Saint Laurence Justinian, Bishop
Our Lady of Mental Peace Prayer
Our Lady of Mental Peace,
Mother of Tranquility and
Mother of Hope,
look upon me in this time
of disquiet and weakness.
Still my restless spirit,
teach my searching heart to know
that Godís love for me
is unchanging and that the suffering,
which He may will for me now
is to draw me closer to Him.
Let thy gentle peace and His,
which the world cannot give,
be always with me, that I may
and then: I beseech thee
for the grace to bring this
peace to others.
Jesus, my Savior, I give myself
entirely to Thee through the Immaculate
Heart of Mary. Amen
Our Lady of Mental Peace, pray for me!
