Lo how a rose e’er blooming, from tender stem hath sprung! Of Jesse’s lineage coming, as prophets long have sung. It came, a flow’ret bright, amid the cold of winter, when half-spent was the night.
Isaiah ‘twas foretold it, the Rose I have in mind. With Mary we behold it, the virgin Mother kind. To show God’s love aright, she bore to us a Savior, when half-spent was the night.
O Flow’r, whose fragrance tender with sweetness fills the air. Dispel in glorious splendor the darkness ev’ry-where: True man, yet very God, from sin and death now save us, and share our ev’ry load.

Holy Mary, Queen of Heaven, Mother of our Lord, Jesus Christ, and Mistress of the world, who forsakes no one, and despises no one, look upon us, O Lady, with an eye of pity, and entreat for us of your beloved Son the forgiveness of our sins; that as we now celebrate with devout affection your Holy and Immaculate Conception, so hereafter, we may receive the prize of eternal blessedness, by the grace of Him Whom You, in virginity did bring forth, Jesus Christ, our Lord. O Mary, conceived without sin, **pray for us who have recourse to you.
Virgin most pure, conceived without sin, fair and stainless from the first moment of your existence, we humbly venerate you as the Mother of our Savior, for He, by His example, taught us the honor and reverence due to you.
We beg of you to accept this novena, which we dedicate to you. You are the safe refuge of the penitent sinner; fit, then, it is that we may cry to
you: O Mary, conceived without sin,**pray for us who have recourse to you.
O God, who, by the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, did prepare a worthy habitation for Your Son, grant, we beseech You,
that as in view of the death of Your Son, You did exempt her from all stain, so we, purified by her intercession, may come to You, through the same
Jesus Christ our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, world without end. Amen. O Mary, conceived without sin,**pray for us who have recourse to you.
A wild turkey in our own backyard! Thanking God for his many blessings and for all of you today!
