At Mass this morning we sang a hymn in honour of Our Lady, the Immaculate Conception; the hymn was the one which was, at one time, called the 'Lourdes' hymn- "Immaculate Mary".
There are many verses and we managed six of them, despite the sudden power cut which rendered the interior of the church rather gloomy, making it difficult to read the verses.
I have noticed that when "Immaculate Mary" is sung, the following verse seems to be frequently missed:
O Mary, O Mother reign o'er us once more
Be England thy dowry
As in days of yore
Now that's a prayer intention, I think.
How would it be if Mary the Immaculate Conception, reigned completely, in the hearts of the faithful?
