Latin.png Latin text

Deus qui beatam Mariam semper virginem,
tabernaculum sancti Spiritus,
post triennium
in templo praesentari voluisti,
praesta quaesumus,
ut qui praesentationis ejus
festa recolimus in terris,
ipsius intercessione
ad templum qui Christus est
in coelesti gloria
praesentari mereamur.

English.png English translation

God, who willed that blessed Mary ever-virgin,
the tabernacle of the Holy Spirit,
after her third year
should be presented in the temple:
grant now
that her presentation
be recalled upon earth by this feast,
so that by her interceding
in heavenly glory
we may be worthy to be presented
to that temple which is Christ.
Translation by Richard Mix
