Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary,
And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary...
Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
Be it done unto me according to Your Word.
Hail Mary...
And the Word was made flesh,
And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary...
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech You, O Lord, Your Grace into our hearts;
that as we have known the incarnation of Christ, your Son
by the message of an angel,
so by His passion and cross we may be brought to the glory of
His Resurrection.
Through the same Christ, our Lord.

This is beautiful, Pat--thank you for reminding me about this observance. It means so much more now than when I was a kid. I also love the story of Mary's time with Elizabeth, who was expecting John the Baptist at the same time. Sure wish we could spend the Advent weeks together!
