To Mary, Mother of the Church

Glorious Lady,
thou art Mother and Virgin.
Thou art the Mother of the body and soul
of our Head and Redeemer;
thou art Mother also
of the members of his Mystical Body.
For by thy love thou hast co-operated
in the birth of the faithful into his Church.
Thou art the beauty and dignity of earth, O Virgin,
and hast ever been the type of the holy Church.
By one woman came death, and by another,
even by thee O Mother of our God,
came life.

St Augustine of Canterbury (d. 604)
