STELLA MARIS , MARY STAR OF THE SEA


Promises to those who sing the Ave Maris Stella 

*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." 

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. 

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.
