Promises To Those Who Sing “Ave Maris Stella”

| Categories: PRAYERS | | 17 Comments

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.

I had thought you had closed shop. I was a very loyal follower of yours.
I am looking for nice quality rosary bracelets. Do you have any ideas of where to go for a web site?

I am glad I found you again.

Thank you so much Wendy! This beautiful song to our Holy Mother, has special significance to me. I was born & still live on Galveston Island, Tx. In the year 1900, Galveston was struck by a terrible Hurricane, in which an estimated 10,000 residents lost their lives. It is still the worst natural disaster on record for the U.S.

During the fierce storm, the song “Ave Stella Maris”, was repeatedly sung by all of the terrified children who lived in a large Orphanage run by the Ursuline Sisters. The Sisters tried to calm the
little ones while the water kept rising. Eventually the three story building collapsed all but 2 children and all of the Sisters lost their lives.

I just turned 57 yrs old and do you know, this is the first time I have listened to this hauntingly beautiful melody.
I will keep this always. :-)

Thank you again and May God Bless you and family.
Ave Maria!?

Dear Wendy and Family, I too had never heard the words or melody of this beautiful song. I thought I had heard all of the beautiful songs to our Blessed Mother. Thank you and blessings to all of you. Sincerely, Laura
