Latin.png Latin text

Felix namque es sacra Virgo Maria et omni laude dignissima,
quia ex te ortus est sol justitiae, Christus Deus noster.
Ora pro populo, intervene pro clero, intercede pro devote femineo sexu:
Sentiant omnes tuum juvamen, quicumque celebrant tuam sanctam commemorationem.
Quia ex te ortus est sol justitiae, Christus Deus noster.

English.png English translation

For thou art happy, O holy Virgin Mary, and art worthy of all praise,
for out of thee arose the Sun of justice, Christ our God.
Pray for the people, plead for the clergy, make intercession for women dedicated to God:
May your help be to all who keep thy holy remembrance.
For out of thee arose the Sun of justice, Christ our God.
