Happy Mother's Day

Photo by a2gemma
May is Mary Month and today is the day in May we honor mothers, especially the Blessed Mother. So happy Mother's Day to all from The Sci Fi Catholic.

Hail thou star of the ocean
Portal of the sky,
Ever virgin Mother
Of the Lord Most High.

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

Break the captives' 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.
