The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God – January 1

December 31, 2017 |


The following responsory is taken from the Office of Readings for the Solemnity of the Mother of God

O pure and holy Virgin, how can I find words to praise your beauty?
The highest heavens cannot contain God whom you carried in your womb.

Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb.

The highest heavens cannot contain God whom you carried in your womb.
