Nov. 3, 2006 — Ave Maria

I am not Roman Catholic, but I wish the Episcopal Church would put Franz Schubert’s classic hymn, a staple of the Roman rite, in our next hymnal:

Ave Maria
Gratia plena
Maria gratia plena
Maria gratia plena
Ave, ave dominus
Dominus tecum

Benedicta tu in mulieribus
Et benedictus
Et benedictus fructus ventris
Ventris tui Jesus

Ave Maria
Ave Maria mater dei
Ora pro nobis pecatoribus
Ora, ora pro nobis
Ora ora pro nobis pecatoribus

Nunc et in hora mortis
In hora mortis, mortis nostrae
In hora mortis nostrae
Ave Maria!

God bless, Maria.
