How blessed you are, O Holy Infant, God made man.
For you raised up Mary, the humble Virgin of Nazareth,
the Holy Mother of God
and Mother of all peoples.
Make our hearts like hers, O sweet Jesus:
loving, contemplative, poor in spirit,
devoted to the will of the Father,
filled with love for our Eternal Father
and our neighbour.
Today, let us pray that we may give ourselves completely
into the hands of the Holy Theotokos
so she, our Mother, may bring us to Christ
and make our hearts like unto His.
