May we all return to such innocence on this Divine Mercy Sunday through the generous mercy of God. Here, my daughter shyly sings the simple Ave Maria Gregorian Chant antiphon at 7-yrs-old. So precious that I wanted to share it with the world. Lyrics in Latin with English translation in parentheses:
Ave Maria (Hail Mary), gratia plena (full of grace), Dominus tecum (the Lord is with Thee). Benedicta Tu in mulieribus (Blessed art Thou amongst women), et benedictus fructus ventris Tui, Jesus (and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus). Sancta Maria (Holy Mary), Mater Dei (Mother of God), ora pro nobis peccatoribus (pray for us sinners), nunc et in hora mortis nostrae (now and at the hour of our death). Amen (Amen).
Jesus told St. Faustina that people who receive Communion on Divine Mercy Sunday having made a good Confession, being in a state of grace, & trusting in His Mercy will receive “the complete remission of sins and punishment.” (Diary 699)
