A Simple Sinner

I was not familiar with the origin of this beautiful prayer so I looked it up online and thought I would share. I was glad I did so!

"Tota pulchra es"

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Tota pulchra es is an old Catholic prayer, written in the fourth century AD. It is one of the five antiphons for the psalms of Second Vespers for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. The title means "You are completely beautiful" (referring to the Virgin Mary). It speaks of her immaculate conception. It takes some text from the apocryphal book of Judith, and other text from Song of Songs.
