Prayers

The Angelus

We are all called to recognize and embrace our tiny Savior, Emanuel, from his earliest moment of human life. We are called in Love, to recognize and rejoice at the very first beat of His tiny Sacred Heart! We are blessed to see Him… to be pilgrims with Mary and the hidden Jesus for His first nine months, in great anticipation of his birth on Christmas Day!
And so, let the Great Fiat begin! May the Church, united with Mary and all humanity, prepare our hearts and our minds with this daily prayer.

The Angelus Prayer
(Traditionally prayed at 6 a.m., 12 noon, and 6 p.m., alone or with a leader.)

The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary: 
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.

Behold the handmaid of the Lord: Be it done unto me according to Thy word.

Hail Mary . . .

And the Word was made Flesh: 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.
