The Angelus

V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.

Hail, Mary, full of grace the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women, And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done unto me according to thy word.

Hail, Mary, full of grace the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women, And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

V. And the Word was made Flesh.
R. And dwelt among us.

Hail, Mary, full of grace the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women, And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

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 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.

Ora pro nobis peccatoribus nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

Ave Maria gratia plena Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.

Sancta Maria Mater Dei
Ora pro nobis peccatoribus nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

V. Et Verbum caro factum est,
R. Et habitavit in nobis.

Ave Maria gratia plena Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.

Sancta Maria Mater Dei
Ora pro nobis peccatoribus nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

V. Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genetrix,
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 eius et crucem ad resurrectionis gloriam perducamur. Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
