THE CROWN OF THE TWELVE STARS

This short prayer is like an echo of the beautiful prayer of the Crown of the Twelve Stars in which St. Joseph Calasanz bases his great devotion to the Blessed Mother of God in the graces that the Three Divine Persons (The Blessed Trinity) upon her to carry out our Redemption. He composed this simple and sublime prayer which is a summary of the Catholic Faith. He assured that he had never prayed to the Blessed Mother with the Crown, without receiving what he had asked for.

The Crown of the Twelve Stars was composed by Saint Joseph Calasanz, the Father of the First Public School s, The Patron Saint of the Christian Popular School, and the Founder of the Order of the Pious Schools or commonly known as The Piarist Fathers, Escolapios.

"The Lords Prayer"

Our Father who art in heaven,

Hollowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil. Amen.

Amen.
