Promises To Those Who Sing “Ave Maris Stella”

    A little history behind this beautiful piece : 

    Ave Maris Stella is a song often sung in times of calamities.

    During a riot at Rome, a mob came to the house where St. Bridget lived. A leader talked of burning Bridget alive!

    She prayed to Our Blessed Lord to know if she should flee to safety and He assured her to stay, saying: "It doesn't matter if they plot thy death. My power will break the malice of thy enemies: If mine crucified me, it is because I permitted it."

    The Blessed Virgin added: "Sing as a group the Ave Maris Stella and I will guard you from every danger."

    Note:  There is an Indulgence of 300 days, once a day

    Hail Star of the Sea

    Hail, thou Star of ocean,
    Portal of the sky !
    Ever Virgin Mother
    Of the Lord most high !

    Oh ! by Gabriel's Ave,
    Uttered long ago,
    Eva's name reversing,
    Stablish peace below.

    Break the captive's fetters ;
    Light on blindness pour ;
    All our ills expelling,
    Every bliss implore.

    Show thyself a Mother ;
    Offer Him our sighs,
    Who for us Incarnate
    Did not thee despise.

    Virgin of all virgins !
    To thy shelter take us :
    Gentlest of the gentle !
    Chaste and gentle make us.

    Still, as on we journey,
    Help our weak endeavor ;
    Till with thee and Jesus
    We rejoice forever.

    Through the highest heaven,
    To the Almighty Three,
    Father, Son, and Spirit,
    One same glory be.  Amen.


    Ave Maris Stella

    Ave, Maris Stella,
    Dei Mater alma,
    Atque semper virgo,
    Felix coeli porta.

    Sumens illud Ave
    Gabrielis ore,
    Funda nos in pace,
    Mutans Evae nomen.

    Solve vincia reis
    Profer lumen caecis,
    Mala nostra pelle,
    Bona cuncta posce.

    Monstra te esse Matrem,
    Sumat per te preces
    Qui pro nobis natus,
    Tulit esse tuus.

    Virgo singularis,
    Inter omnes mitis,
    Nos culpis solutos
    Mites fac et castos.

    Vitam praesta puram,
    Iter para tutum;
    Ut videntes Jesum
    Semper collaetemur.

    Sit laus Deo Patri,
    Summo Christo decus,
    Spiritui Sancto,
    Tribus honor unus.  Amen.


    Love and Blessings, Wendy C.
