The Collect for a feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Almighty God,
who looked upon the lowliness of the Blessed Virgin Mary
and chose her to be the mother of your only Son:
grant that we who are redeemed by his blood
may share with her in the glory of your eternal kingdom;
through Jesus Christ your son our Lord,was wonderfully
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
