Oh, Mary, the Immaculate Conception

As the church celebrates your feast day
known as the Immaculate Conception,
we're grateful for your intercession,
to be part of your Son's redemption.

Preserved from original sin,
a grace and privilege you've attained.
You're the new Eve, our Blessed Mother,
who'll define us through your apparitions.

Your litany of titles draws us closer
to many situations of our sanctification.
Faced with the trials and tribulations,
we call upon you and be our intercessor.

Hail to thee, dear Mother Mary!
with our prayers and sons we raise to thee
be a reflection of our great love for thee
as we venerate thee in our community.

As the prophecy unfolds in the Genesis
"I will put enmity between you and the woman,
between your offspring and hers.
He will strike at your head while you will strike at his heel (Gen 3:15).

Dear Immaculate Conception, our mother!
being deeply involved in your devotion,
we pledge ourselves to be shared and broken to others
like the gift of the Eucharist, our life and sacrament.
