Vigil of the Assumption, second day of the Triduum

This morning Holy Mass for the Vigil of the Assumption was celebrated, and was followed, according to an old custom of St Alphonsus, by Benediction of the Most Holy Sacrament. Today was kept in honour of the second day that Our Lady spent in the tomb.

Ah, how did all the lovely virtues that she had practiced during life surround her blessed bed at the hour of her holy death! — St. Alphonsus: The Glories of Mary.

Thou art all fair, O my love, and there is not a spot in thee Cant. iv. 7

"Magnificat anima mea Dominum; et exsultavit spiritus meus in Deo salutari meo"
"My Soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior"
Luke. i. 1-2

By the merits of Thy happy death obtain us holy perseverance in the divine friendship, that we may finally quit this life in God's grace. — St. Alphonsus: The Glories of Mary.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner!

During the day, work was continued on our small chapel of the Holy Sepulchre.
