Come and behold ye
Born the King of angels;

Our Father. Ten Hail Marys. Glory be to the Father.


O HOLY Mary, Queen of Virgins; through the most high mystery of the Incarnation of thy beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, wherein our salvation was begun, obtain for us, through thy


intercession, light to understand the greatness of the benefit he hath bestowed upon us, in vouchsafing to become our Brother, and giving thee, his own beloved Mother, to be our Mother also. Amen.

II. The Visitation.

Let us contemplate, in this mystery, how the Blessed Virgin Mary, understanding from the angel that her cousin St Elizabeth had conceived, went with haste into the mountains of Judea to visit her, bearing her Divine Son within her womb, and remained with her three months. Our Father, &c.


O HOLY Virgin, most spotless mirror of humility; by that exceeding charity which moved thee to visit thy holy cousin, St Elizabeth, obtain for us, through thy intercession, that our hearts being visited by thy divine Son, and freed from all sin, we may praise and give thanks to him for ever. Amen.

III. The Birth of our Saviour Christ in
