7th December, Vigil of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady

Vigil of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady

In 1879 Pope Leo XIII extended this Vigil to the entire Church. Let us on this day ask the Immaculate Virgin to purify our hearts still more for tomorrow's solemnity (collect).
Veníte, audíte, et narrábo, omnes qui timétis Deum, quanta fecit Dóminus ánimae meae. * Jubiláte Deo, omnis terra: psalmum dícite nómini ejus, date glóriam laudi ejus.
O come hither, and hearken, all ye that fear God; and I will tell you what great things he hath done for my soul. * Shout with joy to God all the earth, sing ye a psalm to His name, give glory to His praise.
(Psalm 65:16,1-2 from the Introit of Mass)

Deus, qui Unigéniti tui Matrem ab origináli culpa in sua Conceptióne mirabíliter praeservásti: da, quaesumus; ut sua nos intercessióne munítos, corde mundos fácias suæ interésse festivitáte.
O God, Who didst wondrously preserve the mother of Thine only-begotten Son from original sin in her own conception, grant, we beseech Thee, that Thou mayest make us, strengthened by her intercession, to keep her festival with clean hearts.
