THE HOLY FATHER’S PRAYER to the Immaculate Conception at the Piazza di Spagna on December 8th

Following a long papal tradition, Pope Francis celebrated the Feast of the Immaculate Conception by traveling to Piazza di Spagna where he venerated the statue named for the Marian Feast. Below is the prayer that the Holy Father recited this year during the Act of Veneration of the Immaculate Conception in Piazza di Spagna. The statue of the Immaculate Conception, venerated by the Holy Father this Sunday, was consecrated on December 8, 1857 several years after the dogma was proclaimed states by the Church. It has since become a tradition for the Pope to venerate the statue each year on December 8 as part of the celebrations for the Marian feast. After the celebrations, Pope Francis paid a visit to the Basilica of Saint Mary Major where he said a private prayer before the image of Our Lady Salus Populi Romani.


“Holy and Immaculate Virgin, to You,
who are the honor of our people
and  solicitous custodian of our city,
we turn with confidence and love.

You are the All Beautiful O Mary

 Sin is not in You.
Awaken in all of us a renewed desire of holiness;
May the splendor of truth shine in our word,
May the song of charity resound in our works,
May purity and chastity inhabit our body and our heart,
May all the beauty of the Gospel be present in our life.                     

You are the All Beautiful, O Mary

The Word of God made flesh in You.
Help us to remain in attentive listening to the voice of the Lord:
The Word of God made flesh in You.
Help us to remain in attentive listening to the voice of the Lord:
may the cry of the poor not leave us indifferent
may the suffering of the sick and of those in need not find us distracted,may the loneliness of the elderly and the fragility of children move us,
may every human life be always loved and
venerated by us all.

You are All Beautiful, O Mary!

In You is the full joy of the blessed life with God.Francis St MAry MAjor
Makes us not lose the meaning of our earthly journey:
May the gentle light of faith illumine our days,
may the consoling strength of hope orientate our steps,
May the infectious warmth of love animate our heart,
May the eyes of all of us remain well fixed there, in God, where true joy is.

You are All Beautiful, O Mary

Hear our prayer, answer our supplication:
May the beauty of the merciful love of God in Jesus be in us,  May this divine beauty save us, our city, the whole world. Amen.”

  Our Lady Salus Populi Romani.

O Mary Conceived without sin pray for us who have recourse to thee!
