From the Divine Office today

R.  Not knowing man, the Virgin Mother gave birth wihout pain, and brought forth the world's Redeemer ; * And he, the King of the Angels, received nourishment from a heaven-filled virginal bosom.
V. The mansion of the modest breast becometh a shrine where God shall rest : the pure and undefiled one within her womb conceived the Son.
R. And he, the King of the Angels, received nourishment from a heaven-filled virginal bosom.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And he, the King of the Angels, received nourishment from a heaven-filled virginal bosom.

(from the office of Matins for the feast of the Circumcision of Christ)
