Loving Mother of the Redeemer
Gate of heaven, Star of the Sea,
Assist your people who have fallen
yet strive to rise again.
To the wonderment of nature
you bore your Creator,
yet remained a virgin after as before.
You who received Gabriel’s joyful greeting,
have pity on us poor sinners.
Sister Linus sent this to me: During Advent, this is the antiphon used in Compline for the Divine Office. She points out that, “Today it’s like a prayer of sorrow and reparation.”
