Franciscan Brothers Version




 Saint Francis “overflowed with an unspeakable love to the Mother of the Lord Jesus, for having made the Lord of majesty our brother and having mercy of us. Most of all on her, after Christ, he put all his trust and that is why he made her his lawyer and of his brothers. He fasted in her honor with great devotion, from the feast of the apostles Peter and Paul until the feast of the Assumption.” (Saint Bonaventure, Major Legend, 9:3).

V/ O Mary Conceived without Sin

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
