E’EN HEAVEN ITSELF GOD SET ASIDE (HYMN)

E’EN HEAVEN ITSELF GOD SET ASIDE (HYMN)

E’en heaven itself God set aside

In Maiden Mother to abide,

To clothe himself in earthly clay,

Our Ransomer, for men to slay.

 

The Maiden  brought him forth to light

To save us from our sorry plight;

He bought us with his very Blood

On Cross ‘mid pain in cruel flood.

 

May joyful hope, – a welcome guest,

Drive terror forth from every breast:

Our tears and prayers the Son will heed

If Mother for us intercede.

 

The Son accepts the Mother’s prayer;

Where rest her wishes, his are there.

Then let us love her each and all

And in the strife upon her call.

 

Be glory to the Three-in-One

Who ‘riched the Virgin with the Son;

To God in heaven let earth upraise

Through age on age a hymn of praise.

Amen.

 

– From: An Approved English Translation of the Breviarium Romanum, Burns & Oates, London, 1964

CONTEMPLATING THE LOVING RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE HEART OF JESUS AND THAT OF MARY

JESUS IS NEVER FAR FROM MARY, AND MARY IS NEVER FAR FROM JESUS.

“Consider the loving relationship between the Heart of Jesus and that of Mary. The Heart of Jesus loves her as the most beautiful of all created things, immeasurably more than He loves all other beings on earth or in heaven. The Heart of Mary loves Jesus as its creator immeasurably more than all the angels and saints put together. The Heart of Jesus has an affection for Mary which is so much greater than the affection all children have for their mothers! And the Heart of Mary is more loving towards Jesus than any other mother has ever been towards their child!

The Heart of Jesus holds Mary dear, as the companion of all its sufferings, and the Heart of Mary holds Jesus dear, because she saw Him die in the midst of a thousand torments. The Heart of Jesus sees Mary as the dearest of its joys and the Heart of Mary sees Jesus as its beginning, its end and its everything. The Heart of Jesus finds in the Heart of Mary, a garden of delights, where it walks among the flowers that are heroic virtues, and the Heart of Mary finds in the Heart of Jesus, the centre of all its glory and happiness.

Therefore, Jesus is never far from Mary and Mary is never far from Jesus. Speak then to the Son through the Heart of the mother, and the mother through the Heart of the Son, and paradise will be yours.”
– Mons. Nicola Tafuri
