Latin.png Latin text

Res est admirabilis, virgo venerabilis parit, sed intacta.
Sine viri coitu plena sancto spiritu genitrix est facta.

Cardine de supero rore salutifero venter fecundatur.
Peperit fecunditas et sacra virginitas integra servatur.

Sicut ros in gramine descendit in virgine verbum summi patris.
Patrem non deseruit et mortalem induit formam alvo matris.

Sicut terram pluvia sic divina gratia virginem fecundat.
Sanctus eam spiritus a peccato penitus abluit et mundat.

Non est opus hominis sed est opus numinis et magne virtutis.
Concipit et generat, que virum non noverat, auctorem salutis.
Amen.
