A Marian Prayer by Saint Germaine (378-448)

[Today the Roman Church observes the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary.  This dogma teaches that Mary, from the moment of her conception in her mother’s womb, was free from the power of sin by the grace of God.  Earlier this year, Msgr. Charles Pope posted a most provocative suggestion on whatnot do whenever someone wrongly accuses Catholics of worshipping Mary.  It can be found  in the MUST READ file above.  Here is a beautiful prayer honoring Mary whom God first honored.]

A Marian Prayer by Saint Germaine

Hail Mary, full of grace,
more holy than the Saints,
more elevated than the heavens,
more glorious than the Angels,
and more venerable than every creature.

Hail heavenly paradise,
all fragrant and a lily
that gives off the sweetest scent,
a perfumed rose that opens up for the health of mortals.

Hail immaculate temple of the Lord,
constructed in a holy fashion,
ornament of Divine magnificence,
open to everyone,
and oasis of mystical delicacies.

Hail mountain of shade,
grazing ground for the holy Lamb
who takes upon himself
the miseries and sins of all.

Hail sacred throne of God,
blessed dwelling,
sublime ornaments,
precious jewel,
and splendidferous heavens.

Hail urn of purest gold,
who contained the manna Christ,
the gentle sweetness of our souls.

Hail most pure Virgin Mother,
worthy of praise and veneration,
fount of gushing waters,
treasure of innocence,
and splendor of sanctity.

O Mary, lead us to the port of peace and salvation,
to the glory of Christ
who lives in eternity
with the Father and with the Holy Spirit.

  1. After my father’s passing on Easter Monday, 1987, I had a dream about him. I didn’t see his face, but I heard him say to me, “I am a flower in Mary’s garden! How happy I am!”
