Liturgical Guide: Common of Virgins

The hymns selected for use with the Common of Virgins in the Liturgy of the Hours celebrate the holy women of the Church whose lives of consecration and fidelity to God were a fitting witness to the faith they professed. "From apostolic times Christian virgins, called by the Lord to cling only to him with greater freedom of heart, body, and spirit, have decided with the Church's approval to live in a state of virginity 'for the sake of the Kingdom of heaven.'" - #933, Catechism of the Catholic Church
