Salve Sancta Parens

Today is the feast of the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Here is the rather beautiful Gregorian Introit for today's Mass: Salve Sancta Parens.

Salve sancta parens, enixa puerpera Regem: qui caelum terramque regit in saecula saeculorum, alleluia.
(Ps. 44: 2Eructavit cor meum verbum bonum: dico ego opera mea Regi.

Gloria Patri, et Filio, et spiritui sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum.  Amen.

Salve sancta parens...

Hail, holy Mother, thou who didst bring forth the King Who rules Heaven and earth for ever and ever. 

(Ps. 44: 2) My heart hath uttered a good word : I speak my works to the King. 

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. 

Hail, holy Mother...
