A Collect for Feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary

which may be said upon Saturdays

O Blessed LORD JESUS CHRIST, Who in taking upon Thee our flesh wast pleased to be conceived of a pure and holy Virgin ; grant that, venerating her memory, we may imitate her example, and may with her enjoy that everlasting blessing which Thou hast pronounced upon the pure in heart, even the vision of Thee our GOD ; Who livest and reignest with the FATHER and the HOLY GHOST, one GOD, world without end.
