THE DIVINE OFFICE AND THE OFFICE OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN.

142. THE PRAYER “SACROSANCTAE,” WITH “PATER,”AND “AVE,” AFTER THE OFFICE.

Pope Leo X. granted to all persons under obligation to recite the Divine Office, or the Office of the Blessed Virgin. provided that, kneeling, and with devotion, they say after it the following prayer, Sacrosanctae, composed by Saint Bonaventura, Doctor of the Church, together with one Pater noster and one Ave Maria, the remission of all defects and faults committed through human frailty in reciting it. And as this grant is not properly an Indulgence, but rather a compensation for, or a supplying of the defects committed in the recitation of the Office, it follows that it is not suspended during the Holy Year like the other Indulgences.

DICTA ORATIO.

Sacrosanctae et indviduae Trinitati, Crucifixi Domini nostri Jesu Christi humanitati, beatissimae et gloriosissimae semperque Virginis Mariae fecundae integritati, et omnium sanctorum universitati sit sempiterna laus, honor, virtus, te gloria ab omnia creatura; nobisque remissio omnium peccatorum, per infinita saecula saeculorurn. Amen.

V. Beata viscera Mariae Virginis, quae portaverunt aeterni Patris Filium.
R. Et beata ubera quae lactaverunt Christum Dominum.

Pater noster. Ave Maria.
