Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception

"Blessed be God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who filled you, Virgin of Nazareth, with every spiritual blessing of Christ. In Him, you were conceived Immaculate! Predicted to be His Mother, you were redeemed in Him and through Him more than any other human being! Perserved from the inheritance of original sin, you were conceived and came into the world in a state of sanctifying grace." Pope John Paul II

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee
