Latin.png Latin text

Celeste beneficium introivit in Annam,
per quam nobis nata est Maria virgo.
O beata Deo grata,
Mater matris nati patris.
Anna nos cum filia,
Christo reconcilia.
(St. Ann, Matins Responsory)

English.png English translation

A heavenly privilege entered into Ann,
through whom the Virgin Mary was born to us.
O blessed one favored by God,
Mother of the Mother of Him born of the Father.
O Ann, together with thy daughter,
Reconcile us with Christ.
Translation by St Ann choir
