Latin.png Latin text

O sancta Maria, virgo virginum,
sancta trinitatis speculum,
angelorum mirabile speculum,
stella sanctorum omnium,
tutum peccatorum refugium.
Cerne, piisima, famuli tui Caroli
omne suum desiderium,
suscipe clementissima
omne suum suspirium
et comple omne suum bonum desiderium;
fac sibi placitum apud tuum filium regem regum
et universalis qui cum patre et spiritu sancto
vivat et regnat Deus per omnia secula seculorum.
Amen.
