Holy the womb that bare Him,
Holy the breasts that fed,
But holier still the royal heart
That in His passion bled.
written to be placed under a picture of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Blessed John Henry Newman, 1801-1890
Almighty and everlasting God, who in the heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary didst prepare an habitation meet for the Holy Ghost: mercifully grant that we, celebrating with devout mind the festival of the same Immaculate Heart, may be enabled to live after thine own Heart; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen. - Divine Worship: The Missal.
