Solemn First Vespers.
I rejoiced at the things that were said to me:
We shall go into the house of the Lord.
Sancta Maria, succurre miseris, ...
Holy Mary, succour those in misery,
strengthen the faint-hearted, comfort the sorrowful,
pray for the people, intercede for the clergy,
plead for all women consecrated to God.
May all experience Thy help -
all who are celebrating Thy holy feast.
Let us bless the Lord.
Mass of the Feast.
Celebrated by Father Anthony Mary, F.SS.R.
on his 19th anniversary of Ordination.
Offerimus tibi, Domine, calicem salutaris, ...
We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation,
beseeching Thy clemency,
that it may ascend in the sight of Thy divine majesty
with a sweet savour,
for our own salvation and for that of the whole world.
