I have a little book with the Latin, English, and Gaelic of this, so it will definitely see some publication in more ways than one!

Shin, it has the Gaelic, too? Could you post it?

Here is the book. (http://www.saintsworks.net/books/Anonymous - Ancient Irish Litany of the Ever Blessed Mother of God in the Original Irish with English and Latin.pdf)

It's a small book just dedicated to the Litany, I haven't yet added it to the index, but will soon God willing. Special privilege for being here! Finding books that aren't even listed yet.  :D

I can't print the Irish here because it's all in Irish characters.  :o How do you read Irish characters? Interesting thought! There's a Latin translation too, of the first part, and a bit of historical information.

The Litany is longer in the book and translated slightly differently too so we get even more fun!

In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary. Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart. And that you may obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps. With her for guide, you shall never go astray; while invoking her, you shall never lose heart; so long as she is in your mind, you are safe from deception; while she holds your hand, you cannot fall; under her protection you have nothing to fear; if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary; if she shows you favor, you shall reach the goal.

-- Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

SALUTATION TO MARY        WRITTEN BY ST. JOHN EUDES IN THE 17 C.

     A copy of this salutation was found in a book belonging to St. Margaret Mary after her death. Zealously propagated by the saintly Fr. Paul of Moll O.S.B. ( Belgium ) 1824-1896.
" This salutation is beautiful ! Recite it daily. From her throne in Heaven the Blessed Virgin Mary will bless you and you must make the sign of the Cross.  Yes ! If only you could see Our Lady blesses you, I know it !  Offered for the conversion of a sinner, it would be impossible not to be granted. "
~~ Fr. Paul of Moll, O.S.B.

  
Hail Mary!  Daughter of God the Father,
Hail Mary!  Mother of God the Son,
Hail Mary!  Spouse of God the Holy Ghost,
Hail Mary!  Temple of the Most Blessed Trinity,
Hail Mary!  Celestial Rose of the ineffable love of God.
Hail Mary!  Virgin pure and humble, of whom the King of Heaven willed to be born and with thy milk to be nourished.
Hail Mary!  Virgin of virgins,
Hail Mary!  Queen of Martyrs, whose soul a sword transfixed,
Hail Mary!  Lady most Blessed! unto whom all power in Heaven and earth is given,
Hail Mary!  my Queen and my Mother!  my Life, my Sweetness, and my Hope,
Hail Mary!  Mother most Amiable,
Hail Mary!  Mother most Admirable,
Hail Mary!  Mother of Divine Love,
Hail Mary!  IMMACULATE; Conceived without sin!
Hail Mary!  Full of Grace!  the Lord is with thee! Blessed art thou among women!  And blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, JESUS!
  
Blessed by thy Spouse, St. Joseph,
Blessed by thy Father, St. Joachim,
Blessed by thy Mother, St. Anne,
Blessed by thy Guardian, St. John,
Blessed by thy Holy Angel, St. Gabriel,
  
Glory be to God the Father, who chose thee,
Glory be to God the Son, who loved thee,
Glory be to God the Holy Ghost, who espoused thee,
  
Glorious Virgin Mary, may all men love and praise thee,
Holy Mary, Mother of God! pray for us and bless us, now and at death in the Name of JESUS, thy Divine Son!

Amen.

The holy Benedictine, Père Paul de Moll, was born in 1824.  His life was spent in great sanctity, in extraordinary virtue, and in working wonders.  Early in his religious life, being at the point of death, Our Blessed Lord with Our Lady, St. Joseph and St. Benedict appeared to him and said: "Be healed! ...  I will grant all that thou ask of Me for others."  He died at the Abbey of Termonde in 1896, and three years later his body was found intact from corruption.  His Cause is now in Rome.

How worthy of honor is Our Blessed Lady..

Hail, then, O Immaculate Mary, living tabernacle of the Divinity, where the Eternal Wisdom willed to be hidden
and adored by angels and by men!
Hail, O Queen of Heaven and earth, to whose empire everything is subject which is under God.
Hail, O sure refuge of sinners whose mercy fails no one! (St Louis Marie De Montfort)

I have been searching for the English version of this very beautiful prayer to Our Lady. I finally found it.  This has been traditionally said in my family home every evening in my mother tongue. It seems to encompass all intentions to Our Blessed Mother . :littlewings: :littlewings:

OUR LADY OF THIS HOUSE

O sweet and gentle Lady, Immaculate Mother of God,
we choose Thee this day to be the Mistress and Lady of this house.
Guard it, dear Mother from pestilence, fire, lightning, and tempests;
from schisms and heresies,
from depredations of burglars and the malice of enemies.
Protect its inmates, sweet Mary; watch over their going out and coming in,
and preserve them from sudden death.
Keep us from all sin and harm, and pray for us to God,
that we may live in His service and depart this life in His grace. ------ Amen.
