The Mystery of the Coronation

I wrote (or stole) this snatch of doggerel verse as a mnemonic to recall the hierarchy of angelic choirs, and for an aid when praying the final decade of the Glorious Mysteries.

I offer it here to my readers to honor the Feast Day of St. Darerca of Ireland, the sister of St. Patrick.

Sing with us, ye Seraphim!

Triumph, all ye Cherubim!

Ye potent Thrones, uphold the hymn!

Dominions, ye adore and praise!

Virtues, worship all your days!

Powers, guard and glorify!

Princedoms, praise and magnify!

Archangels, highest love attest!

Angels, laud her without rest!

All generations, call her Blessed!
