Eve: Magnificat
    The Holy Spirit will come upon you, Mary,
and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. [Alleluia.]
    The Word of God, begotten of the Father before time began,
humbled himself for us and was incarnate
      from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary. [Alleluia.]
    Mary received the Word of the Lord
and conceived the Word of life. [Alleluia.]
    We beseech you, O Lord,
pour your grace into our hearts,
that as we have known the incarnation of your Son Jesus Christ
      by the message of an angel,
so by his cross and passion
we may be brought to the glory of his resurrection;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
