UNBORN WORD of the day

Gloria in Excelsis Deo

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.
