The Angelus

The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary,
And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary. . .
Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
Be it done unto me according to Thy word.
Hail Mary. . .
And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary. . .
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts; that
we to
whom the Incarnation of Christ, Thy 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.
Come, Holy Spirit, and make us fruitful bearers of Incarnate Love.
