And, I almost forgot…

For this celebration of Diva Sabina and Julia Balbilla Sancta:

Ave formosissima,
gemma pretiosa,
ave decus uxorem,
uxor gloriosa,
ave mundi luminar,
ave mundi rosa,
Sabina et Julia,
Sabina et Julia,
Venus, Venus,
Venus generosa!

Hail, most beautiful one,
precious jewel,
Hail, pride among wives,
glorious wife,
Hail. light of the world,
Hail, rose of the world,
Sabina et Julia,
Sabina et Julia,
Venus, Venus,
noble Venus!

*****

[Sing this to the tune of Carl Orff's "Ave Formosissima" from Carmina Burana, or to the tune of "Good King Wenceslaus"--either one works, as well as many others!]
