The Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God

Entrance Antiphon:

Hail, Holy Mother, who gave birth to the King, who rules heaven and earth for ever.

Antiphons from Lumen Christi Simple Gradual (illuminarepublications.com)

Entrance: Immaculate Mary

I include hymns like Immaculate Mary and Hail Holy Queen because it's important for Catholics to know and pray these. A pastoral approach can be as simple as using the typical instrumentation you use for your Mass. It doesn't need to be "jazzed up" or "made cool", it just needs to be accessible and prayerful. I'll usually create arrangements that are harmonically simpler (less chords) in order to reduce choppiness if played on a piano or guitar. 

Responsorial Psalm: Ps 67 May God Bless Us

Offertory: Hail Mary, Gentle Woman

Communion Antiphon:

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and for ever.

Communion: Of the Father's Love Begotten

Communion: O Come Let Us Adore Him

Recessional: Hail, Holy Queen
