Let us celebrate the birth of the Virgin Mary.
Let us adore her Son, Christ the Lord.
When the sacred virgin was born, then the world was filled with light; blessed and holy is the stock which bore such blessed fruit.
With joy let us celebrate the nativity of blessed Mary so that she may intercede for us with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Your birth O Virgin Mother of God, announced joy to the whole world for from you has risen the Sun of Justice.
He released us from the ancient curse and made us blessed.
(The Antiphons of the Feast, Liturgy of the Hours)
