O Intemerata

The second prayer to the Virgin Mary in the book of hours is O Intemerata. (O Unspotted). The prayer dates back to the 12th century and has many variations. The version I used dates to the 15th century. 

This is the last section to complete before I finally get to start working on the actual hours for which these books are known. The Calendars, Gospels and Prayers to the Virgin have taken almost two years to complete due to my very busy schedule, but I am still very much enjoying this project. 

I opted to present a story with this prayer, noting the New Eve and Last Adam.

    Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful work! Would you mind if I shared this with my Schoenstatt Facebook group, Marian sprituality?

    And, if it is possible to publish this, I would love to hear your journey through that process.

    I know it’s so much work to do all of this, but you seem to have a passion and I appreciate you sharing!!

      Yes, feel free to share. If you go back you can view my posts from when I started the book of hours. I tried to offer some comments and the thought behind what I have completed so far. But If you have any questions please let me know. I’m happy to share.
