Novena, Conclusion & Feast Day
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 Hail Mary…
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.
