Musical Version of the Ave Maria in Spanish (by Brother John Samaha, S.M.)
for a Spanish version of the Ave Maria (Hail Mary) that was widely sung in the California Missions. This music was
most likely composed by Franciscan Padre Narciso Duran at Mission San Jose (now Fremont, CA), probably around 1815. Padre Duran, a
trained musician, went from mission to mission teaching music to the natives peoples. He may also have influenced mission art and
architecture. The musical score was prepared by the late Brother Paul Wessling, S.M., more than fifty years ago, and was
published in the Marianist Hymnal which he compiled. The second tenor line is the melody.

Angelus Address in Brno, Czech Republic
"May Mary Keep the Flame of Faith Alive in All of You"
Source: Zenit (Vatican City), September 27, 2009
... Moravia is blessed with a number of Marian shrines that are visited by
crowds of pilgrims throughout the year. At this moment I should like to make a
pilgrimage in spirit to the mountainous forest shrine of Hostýn, where you
venerate the Blessed Virgin Mary as your protectress. May Mary keep the flame of
faith alive in all of you, a faith that is nourished by traditions of popular
piety with deep roots in the past, which you rightly take care to maintain, so
that the warmth of family conviviality in villages and towns may not be lost. At
times one cannot help noticing, with a certain nostalgia, that the pace of
modern life tends to diminish some elements of a rich heritage of faith. Yet it
is important not to lose sight of the ideal expressed by traditional customs,
and above all to maintain the spiritual patrimony inherited from your forebears,
to guard it and to make it answer to the needs of the present day. May the
Virgin Mary assist you in this, as we renew the entrustment to her of your
Church and of the entire Czech nation.
