His Majesty wishes, that thou be most fortunate and
blessed. He chooses thee to be the mother of Her
who is to conceive and bring forth the Onlybegotten
of the Father. Thou shalt bring forth a Daughter, who
by divine disposition shall be called MARY.
She shall be blessed among women and full of the
Holy Ghost. She shall be the cloud that shall drop
the dew of heaven for the refreshment of mortals
and in Her shall be fulfilled the prophecies of thy
ancestors. She shall be the portal of life and
salvation for the sons of Adam.
Canticles 6: 10
She was born pure and stainless, beautiful and full
of grace, thereby demonstrating, that She was free
from the law and the tribute of sin. Although She was
born substantially like other daughters of Adam, yet
her birth was accompanied by such circumstances and
conditions of grace, that it was the most wonderful
and miraculous birth in all creation and will eternally
redound to the praise of her Maker. At twelve o clock
in the night this divine Luminary issued forth, dividing
the night of the ancient Law and its pristine darknesses
from the new day of grace, which now was about to break
into dawn. She was clothed, handled and dressed like other
infants, though her soul dwelt in the Divinity; and She was
treated as an infant, though She excelled all mortals and
even all the angels in wisdom. Her mother did not allow Her
to be touched by other hands than her own, but she herself
wrapped Her in swaddling clothes: and in this Saint Anne was
not hindered by her present state of childbirth; for she was
free from the toils and labors, which other mothers usually
endure in such circumstances.
Prayer to the Blessed Child Mary
Blessed Child Mary, destined to be the Mother of God and our loving
Mother, by the heavenly graces you lavish upon us, mercifully listen to
my supplications. In the needs which press upon me from every side and especially in
my present tribulation, I place all my trust in you.
O holy Child, by the privileges granted to you alone and by the merits
which you have acquired, show that the source of spiritual favors and
the continuous benefits which you dispense are inexhaustible, because
your power with the Heart of God is unlimited.
Deign through the immense profusion of graces with which the Most
High has enriched you from the first moment of your Immaculate
Conception, grant me, O Celestial Child, my petition, and I shall
eternally praise the goodness of your Immaculate Heart. Amen
