A Prayer in Honor of the Immaculate Conception

ANT. This is the rod in which was neither knot of original sin,
nor rind of actual guilt.

V. In your conception, O Virgin! you were immaculate.

R. Pray for us to the Father, Whose Son you did bring forth.

Let us Pray

O GOD, Who, by the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin, did
prepare a worthy habitation for Your Son, we beseech You, that as
by the foreseen death of that same Son, You did preserve her
from all stain, so too You would permit us, purified through
her intercession, to come unto You. Through the same Christ our
Lord. Amen.

Prayer to Our Lady Immaculate

Most holy Virgin, who were pleasing to the Lord and became His Mother, immaculate in body and spirit, in faith and in love, look kindly on the wretched who implore your powerful patronage. The wicked serpent, against whom was hurled the first curse, continues fiercely to attack and ensnare the unhappy children of Eve. Do you, then, O Blessed Mother, our queen and advocate, who from the first instant of thy conception did crush the head of the enemy, receive the prayers which, united with thee in our single heart, we implore you to present at the throne of God, that we may never fall into the snares which are laid out for us, and may all arrive at the port of salvation; and, in so many dangers, may the Church and Christian society sing once again the hymn of deliverance and of victory and of peace. Amen.


In your conception, O Virgin Mary, you were immaculate; pray for us to the Father, Whose Son, Jesus Christ conceived of the Holy Spirit, you did bring forth.
