The Solemnity of Mary, The Mother of God - January 1st

Loving Mother of the Redeemer,
Gate of heaven, star of the sea,
Assist your people who have fallen
yet strive to rise again,
To the wonderment of nature
you bore your Creator,
yet remained a virgin
after as before,
You who received
Gabriel's joyful greeting,
have pity on us, poor sinners.

-Ancient Liturgy of the Hours Prayer
