|Sancta Maria, succurre miseris, juva pusillanimes, refove flebiles, ora pro populo, interveni pro clero, intercede pro monachorum choro, exora pro devoto femineo sexu; sentiant omnes tuum juvamen, quicumque devote celebrant tuum sanctum nomen.||O Holy Mary, give aid to the wretched, strengthen the fainthearted, comfort the sorrowing, pray for the faithful, plead for the clergy, intercede for the choirs of monks, and pray for all good women vowed to God; may all experience thy help, who devoutly commemorate thy holy name.|
|Ant. Sanctissime Confessor Domini, Monachorum pater et dux,
Benedicte, intercede pro nostra omniumque salute.
V. Amavit eum Dominus et ornavit eum.
R. Stolam gloriae induit eum.
Excita, Domine, in Ecclesia tua Spiritum, cui beatus Pater noster Benedictus Abbas servivit: ut eodem nos repleti, studeamus amare quod amavit, et opere exercere quod docuit.
Da nobis, quaesumus, Domine, perseverantem in tua voluntate famulatum: ut in diebus nostris et merito et numero populus tibi serviens augeatur. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. R. Amen.
|Ant. Most holy Confessor of the Lord, Benedict, Father and Guide of monks, intercede for our salvation and the
salvation of all.
V. The Lord loved him and adorned him.
R. He clothed him with a robe of glory.
Let us pray.
Raise up, O Lord, in thy Church, the Spirit wherewith our holy Father Benedict was animated: that, filled with the same, we may strive to love what he loved, and to practise what he taught.
Grant us, we beseech thee, O Lord, persevering submission to thy holy Will, that in our days the people dedicated to thy service may increase both in merit and in number. Through Christ our Lord. R. Amen.
