[Latin Text]

Introit:  Isaias lxi:10

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, and my soul shall be joyful in my God, for He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, and with the robe of justice He has covered me, as a bride adorned with her jewels. [Ps.] I will extol Thee, O Lord, for Thou hast upheld me, and hast not made my enemies to rejoice over me. Glory be.... I will....

Collect:

O God who, by the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin didst make her a worthy habitation for Thy Son, and didst, by His foreseen death, preserve her from all stain of sin; grant, we beseech Thee, that through her intercession we may be cleansed from sin and come with pure hearts to Thee. Through the same our Lord....

Commemoration of the feria.

Epistle: Proverbs vii: 22-35

    A reading from the Book of Wisdom: 
The Lord possessed me in the beginning of His ways, before He made anything from the beginning. I was set up from eternity, and of old before the earth was made. The depths were not as yet, and I was already conceived, neither had the fountains of water s as yet sprung out. The mountains with their huge bulk had not as yet been established, before the hills I was brought forth. He had not as yet made the earth, nor the rivers, nor the poles of the world. When He prepared the heavens I was present, when with a certain law and compass He enclosed the depths; when He established the sky above, and poised the fountains of waters; when He compassed the sea with its bounds, and set a law to the waters that they should not pass their limits; when He balanced the foundations of the earth, I was with Him forming all things. And I was delighted every day, playing before Him at all times; playing in the world, and my delights were to be with the children of men. Now, therefore, children, hear me: blessed are they who keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man who hears me, and who watches daily at my gates, and waits at the posts of my doors. He who shall find me shall find life, and shall have salvation from the Lord.

Gradual: Judith xiii: 23

Blessed art thou, O Virgin Mary, by the Lord, the most high God above all women upon the earth. Thou art the glory of Jerusalem, thou art the joy of Israel, thou art the honor of our people. Alleluia, alleluia. Thou art all fair, O Mary, and there is in thee no stain of original sin. Alleluia.

In votive Masses after Septuagesima the Alleluia is replaced by the following:
Tract: Ps. lxxxvi: 1-2

The foundations thereof are in the holy mountains: the Lord loveth the gates of Sion above all the tabernacles of Jacob. Glorious things are said of thee, O city of God. A man is born in her, and the Highest Himself hath founded her.

During Paschaltime:

Alleluia, alleluia. Thou art the glory of Jerusalem, thou art the joy of Israel, thou art the honor of our people. Alleluia. Thou art all fair, O Mary, and there is in thee no stain of original sin. Alleluia!

Gospel: Luke i: 26-28

    +     The continuation of the holy Gospel according to Luke.
At that time, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary. And when the angel had come to her, he said, "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women."

Credo.

Offertory: Luke i: 28

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women. Alleluia.

Secret:

Accept, O Lord, the saving host which we offer Thee on the solemn festival of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and grant that, as we confess her to have been preserved by Thy prevenient grace from all stain of sin; so through her intercession we may be delivered from all our faults. Through our Lord...
