The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Giotto The Birth of the Virgin

The Birth of the Virgin, by Giotto (1266/7—1337). From Wikipedia.

Almighty and everlasting God, who by the overshadowing of the Holy Ghost didst prepare the body and soul of the Virgin–Mother Mary to be a dwelling place for thy Son: Keep us, we beseech thee, pure and undefiled, that we may be an holy temple wherein he may alway abide, who liveth and reigneth with the in the unity of the same Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O merciful Father, hear the prayers of thy servants who commemorate the Nativity of the mother of the Lord; and grant that by the incarnation of thy dear Son we may indeed be made nigh unto him, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Impart to thy servants, we pray thee, O Lord, the gift of heavenly grace, that the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin may bring deeper peace to those for whom the birth of her Son was the dawning of salvation. Through Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O merciful God, hear the prayers of thy servants who commemorate the nativity of the Mother of the Lord; and grant that by the incarnation of thy dear Son we may indeed be made nigh unto him; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.
