ANGELUS DOMINI (throughout the year except Easter time)

R. Et concepit de Spiritu Sancto.

V. Ecce ancilla Domini,

R. Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum.

Ave Maria... 

V. Et Verbum caro factum est. 

R. Et habitavit in nobis. 

Ave Maria... 

V. Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genitrix. 

R. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.

Oremus. Gratiam tuam, quaesumus, Domine, mentibus nostris infunde; ut, qui, angelo nuntiante, Christi Filii tui incarnationem cognovimus, per passionem ejus et crucem, ad resurrectionis gloriam perducamur. Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum. R. Amen.

THE ANGEL OF THE LORD

V. The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary, 

R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit. 

Hail Mary... 

V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord, 

R. Be it done unto me according to your word. 

Hail Mary... 

V. And the Word was made flesh, 

R. And dwelt among us. 

Hail Mary... 

V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, 

R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray. Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
