Mother of Holy Hope

May Every Age Call His Mother Holy and Blest

Mother of Holy Hope was written by Fr. Lucien Deiss C.S.Sp. (1921-2007). It was first published in 1965 as part of the collection: Biblical Hymns and Psalms, Volume 1. Besides writing many hymns honouring the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Reverend Deiss also authored the book: Mary, Daughter of Sion (Liturgical Press, 1972), which reflects upon the life of Mary as a Daughter of Abraham. In the Liturgy of the Hours, Mother of Holy Hope is used in the Commons of the Blessed Virgin Mary and on the Feast of the Assumption.
