The wild fires has consumed the wilderness and the fires have destroyed many homes and labour camps. The people are evacuated in many townships at Fort Mac. Traffic is slow moving and the fires are spreading quickly. We need your prayers for the safety of people who reside there! I have some friends and relatives over there so please keep them in your prayers!

Thank you.

Promises To Those Who Sing “Ave Maris Stella”


Posted by Wendy Cukierski | Categories: PRAYERS | January 22, 2016 | 16 Comments


A little history behind this beautiful piece :

Ave Maris Stella is a song often sung in times of calamities.

During a riot at Rome, a mob came to the house where St. Bridget lived. A leader talked of burning Bridget alive!

She prayed to Our Blessed Lord to know if she should flee to safety and He assured her to stay, saying: "It doesn't matter if they plot thy death. My power will break the malice of thy enemies: If mine crucified me, it is because I permitted it."

The Blessed Virgin added: "Sing as a group the Ave Maris Stella and I will guard you from every danger."

Note: There is an Indulgence of 300 days, once a day

Hail Star of the Sea
Hail, thou Star of ocean,
Portal of the sky !
Ever Virgin Mother
Of the Lord most high !

Oh ! by Gabriel's Ave,
Uttered long ago,
Eva's name reversing,
Stablish peace below.

Break the captive's fetters ;
Light on blindness pour ;
All our ills expelling,
Every bliss implore.

Show thyself a Mother ;
Offer Him our sighs,
Who for us Incarnate
Did not thee despise.

Virgin of all virgins !
To thy shelter take us :
Gentlest of the gentle !
Chaste and gentle make us.

Still, as on we journey,
Help our weak endeavor ;
Till with thee and Jesus
We rejoice forever.

Through the highest heaven,
To the Almighty Three,
Father, Son, and Spirit,
One same glory be. Amen.


Ave Maris Stella
Ave, Maris Stella,
Dei Mater alma,
Atque semper virgo,
Felix coeli porta.

Sumens illud Ave
Gabrielis ore,
Funda nos in pace,
Mutans Evae nomen.

Solve vincia reis
Profer lumen caecis,
Mala nostra pelle,
Bona cuncta posce.

Monstra te esse Matrem,
Sumat per te preces
Qui pro nobis natus,
Tulit esse tuus.

Virgo singularis,
Inter omnes mitis,
Nos culpis solutos
Mites fac et castos.

Vitam praesta puram,
Iter para tutum;
Ut videntes Jesum
Semper collaetemur.

Sit laus Deo Patri,
Summo Christo decus,
Spiritui Sancto,
Tribus honor unus. Amen.
