Filed under: The Incarnation
It’s hard not to notice that most of the blogs are talking about the Holy Father’s Motu Proprio on the Latin Mass, using the 1962 Missal. I thought that for today I would pick up on that theme. So I found the Collect for the Annunciation, said at Mass every day during Advent from the Latin Mass. It may not be quite the same since the book I am taking it from was published in 1921.
Deus, qui de beatae Mariae Virginis utero, Verbum Tuum, Angelo nuntiante, carnem suscipere voluisti; praesta supplicibus Tuis ut qui vere eam Genitricem Dei credimus ejus apud Te intercessionibus adjuvemur.
O God Who didst please that Thy Word should take flesh, at the message of an Angel, in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary; grant to Thy suppliants that we who believe her to be truly the Mother of God, may be helped by her intercession.
From Ortus Christi : meditations for Advent by Mother St. Paul, published in 1921.
