Preface of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
De gloria Mariae Assumptae
Vere dignum et justum est, aequum et salutare,
nos tibi semper et ubique gratias agere:
Domine, sancte Pater, omnipotens aeterne Deus:
per Christum Dominum nostrum:
Quoniam hodie Virgo Deipara in caelos assumpta est,
Ecclesiae tuae consummandae initium et imago,
ac populo peregrinanti certae spei et solacii documentum;
corruptionem enim sepuleri
eam videre merito noluisti,
quae Filium tuum, vitae omnis auctorem,
ineffabiliter de se genuit incarnatum.
Et ideo, choris angelicis sociati,
te laudamus in gaudio confitentes:
Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus....
The Glory of Mary assumed into heaven
It is truly right and just,
our duty and salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God,
through Christ our Lord.
Since today the Virgin Mother of God was assumed into heaven
as the beginning and pattern of your Church’s perfection
and a sign of sure hope and comfort to your pilgrim people,
For justly you would not allow her
to see the corruption of the tomb,
because from her own flesh she brought forth ineffably
your incarnate Son, the author of all life.
And therefore in company with the choirs of Angels
we praise you, proclaiming with joy:
Holy, Holy, Holy...
