Be wise, make ready your lamps. Behold, the Bridegroom comes; go out to meet Him!

– Antiphon for the Consecration of a Virgin Living in the World

Lord, grant that by Your Spirit we may be truly wise, and ever ready for Your coming! Mary our Mother, Virgin most prudent, pray that we would be eager for the coming of Your Son, and ready to receive Him with joy at every moment. Amen.
