A CANTICLE LIKE THAT OF THE THREE CHILDREN

Bless, all works, our glorious Lady: praise and superexalt her forever.

Bless our Lady, ye Angels: ye heavens, bless our Lady.

Let every creature bless our Lady: whom the King wishes thus to be blessed.

Blessed be thou, O daughter of the most High King: who by thy fragrance
surpassest all lilies.

Blessed be thou, crown of all ladies: blessed be thou, glory of Jerusalem.

Thy odor is like a full field which the Lord hath blessed: which overflows
on those who bless thee, watering their whole souls and minds.

Whosoever shall bless thee, O Blessed Virgin: let him be blessed forever.

He who shall curse thee, O most white rose: let him be accursed.

Let not the abundance of wine and oil: depart from the house of thy
servants.

In thy name let every knee bow: in Heaven, on earth, and in hell.

Let us bless God, who hath created thee: blessed be both thy parents who
have begotten thee.

Blessed be thou, O Lady, in Heaven and on earth: worthy of praise, and
glorious and superexalted forever.

Glory be to the Father, etc.

CANTICLES IN HONOR OF MARY by ST. BONAVENTURE (6)

 

A CANTICLE LIKE THAT OF MOSES (DEUT. XXXII)

Hear, ye heavens, what I shall speak of Mary: let the earth hear the words
of my mouth.

Magnify her together with me: and let us exalt her name forever and ever.

O wicked and perverse generation: acknowledge our Lady for thy salvatrix.

Is she not thy mother, who hath possessed thee: and generated thee in
faith?

If thou leavest her, thou art not the friend of the supreme Caesar: for
without her He will not save thee.

Would that thou couldst understand, and be wise: and provide for thy last
end!

As an infant without a nurse cannot live: so thou canst not have salvation
without Our Lady.

Let thy soul thirst for her, hold her, and do not let her go: until she has
blessed thee.

Let thy mouth be filled with her praises: sing her magnificence the whole
day long.

Glory be to the Father, etc.

A CANTICLE LIKE HABACUC’S (III)

O Lady, I have heard thy hearing: and I was astonished: I have considered
thy works, and I have feared.

Lady, thy work: in the midst of the years thou hast quickened it.

I will praise thee, O Lady: for thou hast hidden these things from the
wise, and hast revealed them to little ones.

Thy glory hath covered the heavens: and the earth is full of thy mercy.

Thou hast gone forth, O Virgin, in the salvation of thy people: to their
salvation with Christ.

O blessed one, in thy hands is laid up our salvation: be mindful, O loving
one, of our poverty.

He whom thou wilt save, will be saved: and he from whom thou shalt turn
away thy face, will go down to destruction.

Glory be to the Father, etc.

Another Letter From the Four Cardinals To the Pope. This Too With No Response – Settimo Cielo

Seven months on from the “dubia,” Pope Francis has received midway through this spring another letter from the same four cardinals, signed by Carlo Caffarra in the name of the other three: Walter Brandmüller, Raymond L. Burke, and Joachim Meisner.

And to this letter as well, like to the “dubia” before it, he has not responded.

The four cardinals were asking the pope for an audience. To talk with him about the divisions generated by “Amoris Laetitia” and about the resulting “situation of confusion and disorientation” in much of the Church.

The letter was in Francis’s hands back on May 6. But the prolonged absence of a response has expanded its nature. As has already happened with the “dubia,” the four cardinals now think it right that the letter be offered for the reflection of the whole “people of God,” from which arises the demand for clarification to which they are giving voice.
