A TRINITARIAN PRAYER OF PRAISE TO MARY by SAINT JOSEPH CALASANCTIUS (A.D. 1557-1648)

Let us offer praise and thanksgiving
to the most Holy trinity
who has shown us the Virgin Mary,
clothed with the sun,
the moon beneath her feet,
and on her head a mystic crown of twelve stars.

Let us praise and thank the Divine Father
who elected her for his daughter.

“Our Father…”

Praised be the Divine Father
who predestined her to be the Mother of His Divine Son.

“Hail Mary…”

Praised be the Divine Father
Who preserved her from all stain in her conception.

“Hail Mary…”

Praised be the Divine Father
Who adorned her at her birth with his most beautiful gifts.

“Hail Mary…”

Praised be the Divine Father
Who gave her St. Josph to be her companion and chaste spouse.

“Hail Mary…”
“Glory be…”

Let us praise and thank the Divine Son
Who chose her for his Mother.

“Our Father…”

Praised be the Divine Son
Who became incarnate in her bosom and there abode for nine months.

“Hail Mary…”

Praised be the Divine Son
Who was born of her and was nourished by her.

“Hail Mary…”

Praised be the Divine Son
Who in his childhood was taught by her.

“Hail Mary…”

Praised be the Divine Son
Who revealed to her the mystery of the redemption of the world.

“Hail Mary…”
“Glory be…”

Let us praise and thank the Holy Spirit
Who took her for his spouse.

“Our Father…”

Praised be the Holy Spirit
Who revealed first to her his name of Holy Spirit.

“Hail Mary…”

Praised be the Holy Spirit
by whose miracle she was the living temple
of the ever blessed Trinity.

“Hail Mary…”

Praised be the Holy Spirit
by whom she was exalted in heaven
above every living creature.

“Hail Mary…”
“Glory be…”
