Recently garlands of roses
given by the Pope
-despite a terrible winter—
adorned this temple of magnificent structure
forever dedicated in a pious and holy fashion
to you, heavenly Virgin.
Today the vicar
of Jesus Christ and successor
of Peter, Eugenius,
has deigned to consecrate this same
vast temple with his sacred hands
and holy liquors.
Therefore, sweet parent
and daughter of your Son,
virgin, flower of virgins,
your devoted people of Florence
prays that anyone in agony
who will have prayed for anything
with a clean mind and body
will deserve to receive
by your prayer
and the merits of your Son in the flesh
the sweet gifts of his Lord and
forgiveness of sins.
