Ex Actis Pii Papae IX

Deiparae autem Virginis in sua Conceptione de teterrimo humani generis hoste victoriam, quam divina eloquia, veneranda traditio, perpetuus Ecclesiae sensus, singularis episcoporum ac fidelium conspiratio, insignia quoque summorum Pontificum acta atque constitutiones mirifice iam illustrabant, Pius nonus Pontifex Maximus totius Ecclesiae votis annuens statuit supremo suo atque infallibili oraculo solemniter proclamare. Itaque sexto Idus Decembris anni millesimi octingentesimi quinquagesimi quarti in basilica Vaticana ingenti sanctae Romanae Ecclesiae patrum Cardinalium, et Episcoporum ex dissitis etiam regionibus astante coetu, universoque plaudente orbe solemniter pronuntiavit ac definivit: Doctrinam quae tenet beatissimam Virginem Mariam in primo instanti suae Conceptionis fuisse, singulari Dei privilegio, ab omni originalis culpae labe praeservatam immunem, esse a Deo revelatam, ac proinde ab omnibus fidelibus firmiter constanterque credendam.
V. Tu autem Dómine miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Signum magnum apparuit in coelo: Mulier amicta sole, et luna sub pedibus eius:
* Et in capite eius corona stellarum duodecim.
V. Induit eam Dominus vestimentis salutis, indumento iustitiae, et quasi sponsam ornavit eam monilibus suis.
R. Et in capite eius corona stellarum duodecim.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et in capite eius corona stellarum duodecim.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Spirit's fire Divine in our hearts enkindled shine. Amen.

Reading 6
From the acts of Pope Pius IX

The fact that the Virgin Mother of God had at the moment of her conception triumphed over the foul enemy of man, hath ever been borne out by the Holy Scriptures, by the venerable tradition of the Church, and by her unceasing belief, as well as by the common conviction of all Bishops and faithful Catholics, and by marked acts and constitutions of the Holy See. At length the Supreme Pontiff Pius IX., in compliance with the wishes of the Universal Church, determined to publish it as a truth of faith, on his own absolute and unerring authority, and accordingly, on the 8th day of December, 1854, in the Vatican Basilica, in presence of a great multitude composed of the Fathers Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, and Bishops from all parts of the earth, he, with the consent and jubilation of the whole world, declared and defined as follows That doctrine which declareth that the most blessed Virgin Mary was in the first instant of her Conception preserved, by a special privilege granted unto her by God, from any stain of original sin, is a doctrine taught and revealed by God, and therefore is to be held by all faithful Christians firmly and constantly.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. There appeared a great wonder in heaven a Woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet
* And upon her head a crown of twelve stars.
V. The Lord hath clothed her with the garments of salvation, and hath covered her with the robe of righteousness, yea, as a bride He hath adorned her with jewels.
R. And upon her head a crown of twelve stars.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And upon her head a crown of twelve stars.
