Salve Regina

June 12, 2011

Salve, Regina, madre di misericordia, vita, dolcezza e speranza nostra, salve. A Te ricorriamo, noi esuli figli di Eva; a Te sospiriamo gementi e piangenti in questa valle di lacrime. Orsù dunque, avvocata nostra, rivolgi a noi quegli occhi Tuoi misericordiosi. E mostraci dopo questo esilio, Gesù, il frutto benedetto del Tuo seno. O clemente, o pia, o dolce Vergine Maria.

The “Salve Regina” is a Marian hymn and one of four Marian antiphons sung at different seasons within the Christian liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church. The Salve Regina is sung in the time from Trinity Sunday until the Saturday before the first Sunday of Advent. In the vernacular as a prayer to the Virgin Mary, the Hail Holy Queen is the final prayer of the Rosary.
The work was composed during the Middle Ages most probably by a German monk Hermann of Reichenau and originally appeared in Latin, the prevalent language of Western Christianity until modern times. Traditionally it has been sung in Latin, though many translations exist. These are often used as spoken prayers.  READ MORE
