TOTUS TUUS / by Joseph Castorino


Sweet Santa Maria,

   Sweetest Queen of All Hearts,

How blessed are we who treasure

   Your humble holy heart.


Through you, we can allow

   God's grace to sublimely soak into our souls,

So that we can be refreshed as if by

   Cool cascades of pure pristine water.


Blessed are you among the peoples

   Of the world; by following your

Simple example, fresh fruit will

   Richly ripen on our trees.


God's magnificent mercy and

   Grace flow through you;

Lovely Madonnina, 

   Please pray for us.
