Hail Mother

Columban Daily Prayer
May 1, 2022

Mother of God, who contained the infinite God
under your heart, whom no space can contain:
through you the most Holy Trinity is revealed,
adored, and glorified, demons are vanquished,
Satan cast down from heaven into hell
and our fallen nature again assumed into heaven.

Through you the human race,
held captive in the bonds of idolatry,
arrives at the knowledge of truth.
What more shall I say of you? Hail,
through whom kings rule,
through whom the Only-Begotten Son of God
has become the Star of Light to those
sitting in darkness and in the shadow of death.
