Alma Redemptoris (simple) JPEG

Kind mother of the Redeemer, who remain the open gate of heaven and the star of the sea: 
help your falling people who want to rise, you who bore your holy Parent, while nature marveled:
a Virgin before and after, receiving that ‘Ave’ from Gabriel’s mouth, have mercy on [us] sinners

In honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary
