Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

O Mother blest! And chosen shrine wherein the Architect divine | Whose hand contains the earth and sky vouchsafed in hidden guise to lie; | Blest in the message Gabriel brought; blest in the work the Spirit wrought; | Most blest, to bring to human birth the long desired of all the earth!

— St. Venantius Fortunatus
