Pause for Prayer: SATURDAY 5/6

May is a month of special devotion to Mary, the Mother of Jesus. On the Saturdays of May, Pause for Prayer will focus on Mary.  Each post will feature an appropriate musical selection: today, Ave Maria by Gregory Norbet.

O, Mary, our sister,
Mary, our Mother,
Mother of Jesus,
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Spouse of the Spirit,
Woman of the Promise,
Mystical Rose,
Consoler of souls,
Queen of Peace
Mother of Mercy, 
Star of the Sea,
Seat of Wisdom,
Doorway to Glory,
Help of all Christians:
    pray for us all
        in good times and bad,
        in sorrow and joy,
        in sickness and health;
    pray for us sinners
        in need of God's mercy,
   pray for us now,
        every day, every night
    and then at the end
        at the hour of our death...

This song interpolates some Latin phrases from
the Hail Mary with some expanded translation
of the same.
