A collect for Our Lady of Walsingham:

O God, Who by the mystery of the Word, therein become Incarnate, didst in Thy mercy consecrate the House of the Blessed Virgin Mary; grant that, forsaking the tents of sinners, we may be found worthy to have our home in Thy holy dwelling-place.  Through the same Christ our Lord Who livest and reignest with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, forever and ever.  Amen.
