Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary


As the vine I have brought forth a pleasant odour: and my flowers are the fruit of honour and riches.  I am the mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope.  In me is all grace of the way and of the truth, in me is all hope of life and of virtue.

Come over to me, all ye that desire me, and be filled with my fruits. For my spirit is sweet above honey, and my inheritance above honey and the honeycomb.  My memory is unto everlasting generations.  They that eat me, shall yet hunger: and they that drink me, shall yet thirst.  He that hearkeneth to me, shall not be confounded: and they that work by me, shall not sin.

They that explain me shall have life everlasting.
  [Ecclesiasticus, 24. 23-31]
