Catholic Prayer: Prelates, Kings and Peoples of the Earth!

Description:

Hymn taken from the Dominican Breviary.

Prayer:

Prelates, Kings, and people of the earth! celebrate the glorious name of Raymund, to whom the salvation of all mankind was an object of loving care.

His pure and spotless life reflected all the marvels of the mystic life; and the light of every virtue shines brightly forth in him.

With admirable study and research, he collects together the scattered Decrees of the Sovereign Pontiffs, and all the sacred maxims of the ancient Canons, so worthy to be handed down to all ages.

He bids the treacherous sea be firm, and on her open waters carry him to land; he spreads his mantle, and his staff the mast, he rides upon the waves.
