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.”
