O Mystic Valley

The Liturgical Year - 1867

Saturday is the day which is sacred to Mary; she will the more readily grant the prayers said to her upon it. 


O Mystic Valley, ever verdant and lovely in thy flowers of grace. We that, like high hills, are so proud and such sinners, what shall we do? We must look on this our God, who comes to us in infinite humility, and then humble ourselves out of love and gratitude. O blessed Mother! obtain this grace for us. Pray for us that henceforth we may submit ourselves to the will of our Lord as thou didst, when thou didst speak those admirable words: 'Behold the handmaid of the Lord: may it be done to me according to thy word!'

by Dom Prosper  Granger O.S.B.
London, 1867
