In Masses of the Seven Sorrows is said: in the Transfixion.

On the Memorial of Mount Carmel is said: in the Commemoration.

It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and that in (name of feast) of Blessed Mary ever-Virgin, we should praise you, bless you, and extol you: for by the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit, she conceived your onlybegotten; and in the abiding glory of her virginity, shed forth on this world the everlasting Light, Jesus Christ our Lord.
