Blessed are you among all men,

And blessed be your eyes, which have seen what you have seen.

And blessed be your ears, which have heard what you have heard.

And blessed be your hands, which have touched the Word Incarnate.

And blessed be your arms, which have carried Him who carries all things.

And blessed be your bosom, where the Son of God most sweetly rested.

And blessed be your heart, burning with the most ardent love for Him.

And blessed be the Eternal Father, who chose you,

And blessed be the Son, who loved you,

And blessed be Mary, your wife, who loved you as a spouse and a brother,

And blessed be the Angel who protected you,

And blessed be forever all those who bless and love you.

Amen.
