Today is the feast of Mary, Auxilium Christianorum…Help of Christians.
Here is the Secret, in Latin, from the 1962 Missale.
Let’s see what you can do.
For WDTPRS pieces, I try to find something about the
- provenance of the prayer (whether it is ancient, or modern)
- vocabulary and syntax: tricky words, imagery, structure, etc.
- compare different translations
- theological point
- spiritual and practical application
Pro religionis christianae triumpho
hostias placationis tibi, Domine, immolamus:
quae ut nobis proficiant,
opem auxiliatrix Virgo praestet;
per quam talis perfecta est victoria.
Have a go.
