Feast of the Immaculate Conception

O Glorious Childbearer,
O secret womb,
O gilded bridechamber, from which hath come the sightly Bridgroom forth,
O amber veil,
Thou sittest in heaven, the white love of the Gael.
Thy head is crowned with stars, thy radiant hair
Shines like a river thro' the twilight air;
Thou walkest by trodden ways and trackless seas,
Immaculate of man's infirmities.

-Joseph Campbell
