Shunoyo (Soonoyo) - Assumption of St. Mary - Supplement

Maronite Hymn - "Fee Thoo-Lee"

We run for protection to you
Mary, we come to you for aid.
We implore you turn not away
Mother who must be obeyed.

Perfection of the pure
Mother undefiled.
By your merit plead for us,
let us know your Child.

Mary Heaven's gate
Mother of our Lord
Thru you source of all our hope
Guiding light has poured.

Look down upon us all
serving faithfully
We implore your help and care
at our Mother's knee.

As dew was falling gently
over the city of Ephesus
Saint John wrote to its people.
He instructed them to celebrate
the memory of the Blessed Mary,
three times each year:
In January, during the time of planting of the seeds;
in May, during the time of harvest;
and in August, during the time of the grapes.
For the mysteries of life are prefigured in these months.
