the Immaculate Conception of Mary
You prepared the Virgin Mary to be the worthy mother of your
Son. You let her share beforehand in the salvation Christ would
bring by His death, and kept her sinless from the first moment
of her conception. Help us by her prayers to live in your presence
without sin. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your
Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one
God, for ever and ever. Amen.

immune from all stain of original sin.”
