O Pure and Immaculate Virgin Mary


O pure and immaculate
and likewise blessed Virgin,
who art the sinless Mother of thy Son,
the mighty Lord of the universe,
thou who art inviolate and altogether holy,
the hope of the hopeless and sinful,
we sing thy praises.
We bless thee, as full of every grace,
thou who didst bear the God-Man:
we bow low before thee;
we invoke thee and implore thine aid.
Rescue us, O holy and inviolate Virgin,
from every necessity that presses upon us
and from all the temptations of the devil.

Be our intercessor and advocate
at the hour of death and judgment;
deliver us from the fire
that is not extinguished
and from the outer darkness;
make us worthy of the glory of thy Son,
O dearest and most clement Virgin Mother.
Thou indeed art our only hope most sure
and sacred in God’s sight,
to Whom be honour and glory and majesty and dominion
for ever and ever world without end. Amen.
Ephrem the Syrian (306-373)

    Posting from the nation whose patron saint is the Immaculate Conception, and who has now become the parent to an aging mother as well dealing with my own aging the Immaculate Virgin Mary has become much greater and meaningful for me this year.
