.. on the splendid Feast of her assumption to heaven
I humbly offer a double salutation to my Mother, the Queen Of heaven
with a Brigittine Heart
Saint Birgitta was instructed by Our Lord to plant a new vineyard in which His Mother is honoured.
This is why we begin each our Hour of the Divine Office with the invocation:
Dignare me laudare te Virgo Sacrata – Da mihi virtutem contra hostes tuos
Deign to permit me to praise thee, Sacred Virgin – Give me virtuous strength against thy enemies!
With a Hungarian heart
Hungary , also titled Regnum Marianum, was the first country formally offered up to Our Lady- in the 11th century by our King, Saint Stephan.
May I be given the graces too express I the love of Our Lady, as beautifully, as did Saint Maximillian Kolbe, taken to heaven on the vigil of this Feast!
