FEAST OF THE CONCEPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY.
ST. MARY whom all generations call blessed, we so call.
Who bore the Saviour of all mankind we cherish in grateful memory.
Whom God the Son deigned to honor, we aspire to honor.
She whom God sanctified is holy: she who responded to God's call is "called and chosen and faithful."
Her gifts are His gifts to her, her graces His graces in her.
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
