O Virgin, fair as the moon, in whom the heavens rejoice, upon whose face the blessed gaze, and whom the Angels acknowledge as their model; make us, thy children, like unto thee by shedding upon our souls a ray of thy beauty such as will not grow dim with passing time, but will shine for all eternity. O Mary, thou mystic sun, reawaken life wherever there is death, and cast thy light on souls where shadows fall. Let thy image be mirrored in the faces of thy children, and grant to us to reflect thy light and thy ardor. O Mary, powerful as an army, grant victory to our ranks. We are so weak, and our proud enemy unceasingly rages against us. But under thy standard we have the sure hope of conquering him, for he knows the power of thy heel and trembles at the majesty of thy countenance. Save us, O Mary, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, powerful as an army set in array, whose strength lies not in hate but in the most glowing love.
