1st January 2014 Happy New Year

Today is the Solemnity of Mary,
The Holy Mother of God

Lord God and Maker of all things,
            Creation is upheld by you.
            While all must change and know decay,
            You are unchanging, always new.
            You are man’s solace and his shield,
            His Rock secure on which to build.
            You are the spirit’s tranquil home,
            In you alone is hope fulfilled. 
            To God the Father and the Son 
            And Holy Spirit render praise:
            Blest Trinity, from age to age
            The strength of all our living days.

               Sext Hymn from The Stanbrook Abbey Hymnal 
                detail: The Ghent Altarpiece by Jan Van Eyck c. 1432
