Around Her funeral couch.
Yesterday the meditation from St. Alphonsus was on
the Death of Most Holy Mary.
By today the beautiful funeral couch of the Mother of God
had been erected with a pall overhanging Her figure.
Memoria mea in generationes saeculorum.
My memory is unto everlasting generations.
Beata es, Virgo Maria,
quae omnium portasti Creatorem:
genuisti qui te fecit,
et in aeternum permanes virgo.
Blessed art Thou, O Virgin Mary,
Who didst bear the Creator of all things:
didst bring forth Him who made Thee,
and for ever remainest a virgin.
At the funeral couch of our Mother let us pray:
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
