PRAYER TO THE
O God, who by the Immaculate Conception
of the Blessed Virgin Mary, did prepare
a worthy dwelling place for Your Son,
we beseech You that, as by the foreseen death
of this, Your 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 Lord Jesus Christ,
Your Son, who lives and reigns with
You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, world without end. Amen.
