The Feast of the Circumcision 2016

The great mystery of heirship; the womb of Her that knew not man is become the temple of God: in taking flesh from Her, He was not defiled: all nations shall come and say, Glory to thee, O Lord! (Antiphon at the Magnificat for Second Vespers of the Circumcision.)

The Circumcision of the Lord, and the beginning of the Mass for the feast, from the Salzburg Missal.
Aña Magnum hereditatis * mysterium: templum Dei factus est uterus nescientis virum: non est pollutus ex ea carnem assumens: omnes gentes venient, dicentes: Gloria tibi Domine.
