A prayer of devotion and belief in the Incarnation, in
memory of the very first of Our Lady’s joys, “The Annunciation”.
R: The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary
V: And she conceived by the Holy Spirit
R: Behold the handmaid of the Lord
V: Be it done unto me according to thy Word
R: And the Word became flesh (bow or genuflect)
V: And dwelt amongst us
R: Pray for us O most holy Mother of God
V: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ
Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech thee O Lord, thy grace into our hearts, that we
to whom the Incarnation of Christ thy Son, was made known by the
message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the
glory of His Resurrection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
PRAYER FOR THE FEAST OF OUR LADY OF WALSINGHAM
Lord God, in the mystery of the Incarnation, Mary conceived your
Son in her heart before she conceived him in her womb. As we, your
pilgrim people, rejoice in her patronage, grant that we also may
welcome him into our hearts, and so, like her, be made a holy house
fit for his eternal dwelling. We ask this through Our Lord Jesus
Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the
Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
