In nativitate beatae Mariae Virginis

8 09 2008

Sequitur: Et quasi luna plena in diebus suis lucet. Beata Maria dicitur plena luna, quia ex omni parte perfecta. Luna ideo imperfecta et semiplena, quia habet maculam et cornua. Sed gloriosa Virgo nec in sua Nativitate habuit maculam, quia in utero matris fuit sanctificata, [idest concepta Immaculata sine peccato originali], ab angelis custodita; nec in diebus suis [habuit] cornua superbiae, et ideo plena et perfecta lucet. Lux dicta, quod diluat tenebras. Rogamus ergo te, Domina nostra, ut tu, quae es stella matutina, nebulam daemoniacae suggestionis, mentis nostrae terram tegentem, tuo splendore expellas; tu, quae es plena luna, vacuitatem nostram adimpleas, peccatorum nostrorum tenebras diluas, quatenus ad vitae aeternae plenitudinem, ad gloriae indeficientis lucem pervenire mereamur. Ipso praestante, qui te in lucem nostram produxit, qui, ut ex te nasceretur, te hodie nasci fecit. Cui est honor et gloria in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

If you can read this post, you an entirely too educated (or perhaps what once passed for a minimally literate person). 😉

All Hail the miraculous birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary!

In your holy birth, Immaculate One, Joachim and Anna were rid of the
shame of childlessness; Adam and Eve of the corruption of death. And so
your people, free of the guilt of their sins, celebrate crying: “The
barren one gives birth to the Theotokos, who nourishes our life.”
