The Annunciation

The Angelus:

The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary

and she conceived of the Holy Ghost

Behold the handmaid of the Lord

Be it done unto me according to Thy word

And the Word was made flesh

And dwelt amongst us

Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genitrix;

Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi

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.
