Our Lady of Lourdes

Immaculate Mary, your praises we sing.
You reign now in heaven with Jesus our King.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Maria!

In heaven the blessed your glory proclaim;
On earth we your children invoke your fair name.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Maria!

We pray for our mother, the Church upon earth,
And bless, Holy Mary, the land of our birth.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Maria!

Because Mary identified herself to Bernadette Soubirous as the “Immaculate Conception,” we celebrate on this day Mary’s sinlessness as the hope and refuge of the human race.
