The Fourth Week Of Advent: Magnum Mysterium

Wheaton College Advent Devotional

Oh Great Mystery...

O magnum mysterium,
et admirabile sacramentum,
ut animalia viderent Dominum natum,
jacentem in praesepio!
Beata Virgo, cujus viscera
meruerunt portare
Dominum Jesum Christum.

O great mystery,
and wonderful sacrament,
that animals should see the new-born Lord,
lying in a manger!
Blessed is the Virgin whose womb
 was worthy to bear 
our Saviour, 
Jesus Christ.
