Oh! Immaculata, Queen of Heaven and earth, Queen of Peace, most loving Mother,
we thank you for the company of your tender and delicate look,
full of mercy, at the side of our pains and torments,
giving us the courage of Hope and the comfort of Faith.
Mother of the Silence and of Humility, *
Your Silence is not absence, but presence.
The world drowns in the sea of dispersion,
it’s impossible to love with the heart dispersed.
Involve us with the mantle of your silence,
and communicates to us the strength of your faith,
the height of your hope,
and the depth of your Love.
Remain with those who stay
and leave with those who go.
Oh! Admirable Mother of the Silence.
“Looking at her, we recognize the loftiness and beauty of God’s plan for everyone: to become holy and immaculate in love (cf. Eph 1: 4), in the image of our Creator.”
Pope Benedict XVI, 8 December, 2007
