Antiphon on the Magnificat
O wisest of virgins, whither goest thou, like to the Day-Spring gloriously rising? * O daughter of Sion, altogether lovely art thou, and pleasant for delights, fair as the moon, clear as the sun.

O God, who didst vouchsafe to choose the Virgin womb of blessed Mary wherein to make thy dwelling-place: Grant, we beseech thee, that we, being defended by her protection, may of thee be enabled to attain with gladness to her coming festival; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
