Index of Marian Hymns and Antiphons

Because the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM) plays a central role in the story of Salvation History (see video commentary by Fr. Robert Barron below), she holds a prominent place in the Liturgy of the Hours. This honor is most clearly shown in the Common of the BVM which is used on Marian Feast Days. Extending from the Common is the Optional Memorial of the BVM prayed on Saturdays. As well, the Little Office of the BVM which, although separate from the Liturgy of the Hours, originated in the 8th century as a variation of the Common of the BVM. The one other place where Marian devotion plays a special role in the Liturgy of the Hours is at the conclusion of Night Prayer (Compline). After we have entrusted ourselves to God, the Father as his children ready for sleep, we ask Mary, Our Mother to pray for us. The following is the complete list of all Marian hymns and antiphons posted on this website. Related Post: Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
