The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Heavenly Father,
Mary had unending faith in You and Your Spirit
and a love that never knew sin.
You kept her sinless from the first moment of her conception
in the womb of her mother, Anne, 
and prepared her to be the mother of Your Son Jesus Christ.
Instill in us a love like hers, and a complete readiness of faith 
so that we, too, may be joyful bearers of Christ.
Prepare our world once again for the coming of Your Son 
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, forever and ever.
