Sixth Hour on Monday



Mary stands among the assemblies carrying the living Son of God, and gives milk to the Providence, who with a gesture feeds all creatures, halleluia, may her prayer be with us.

Glory be to the Father...

Behold, heaven and earth rejoice at your memory, blessed and holy martyrs, and, behold, angels and men are glad and sing praise to the power which rests in your bones, halleluia, may your prayers be with us.
