THE MARIAN PRAYER OF
A FATHER OF THE
COUNCIL OF EPHESUS (A.D. 431)


Hail Mary,
Mother of God,
venerable treasure of the whole world.
You are the lamp that is never extinguished,
the crown of virginity,
the rule of orthodoxy,
the incorruptible temple
containing the one whom nothing can contain,
the Mother and Virgin,
through whom the one who comes
in the Name of the Lord
receives in the Gospel the name of "Blessed."

We salute you,
who have borne the immensity of God
in your virginal womb.

Through you,
the Trinity is sanctified.

Through you,
the Cross is venerated in the whole world.

Through you,
heaven is filled with joy.

Through you,
the Angels and Archangels rejoice.

Through you,
demons are sent flying.

Through you,
the tempter devil is cast out of heaven.

Through you,
the fallen creature is elevated to heaven.

Through you,
the whole universe,
possessed by idolatry,
has attained the knowledge of the truth.

Through you,
holy Baptism comes to those who believe.

Through you,
the oil of gladness reaches us.

Through you,
churches are established in the whole world.

Through you,
peoples are led to conversion.

Through you,
even more,
the only-begotten Son of God
has radiated like light
upon those who sat in darkness
and the shadow of death.

Through you,
the Prophets have announced their message,
and the Apostles have proclaimed salvation to the nations.

Through you,
the dead rise,
and kings exercise their royalty,
by the power of the Holy Trinity.
