Annunciation, St. Bonaventure

Psalm 8

O Lady, Our Lord has become our brother and our Savior. Like the flame in the burning bush, and the dew in the fleece: the Word of God descends into thee forever. The Holy Spirit hath made thee fruitful: the power of the Most High hath overshadowed thee. Blessed be thy most pure conception: blessed be thy virginal bringing forth. Blessed be the purity of thy body: blessed be the sweetness of the mercy of thy heart.
