The Angelus (so named because “angel” is the first word) commemorates the Incarnation, and is traditionally prayed at 6 a.m., noon, and 6 p.m. During the Easter season, it is replaced by the Regina Caeli.

LEADER: The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.

Response: 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.

Leader: Behold the handmaid of the Lord.

Response: Be it done unto me according to thy Word.
Hail, Mary, full of grace…. (Pray the Hail Mary again.)

Leader: And the Word was made fl esh.

Response: And dwelt amongst us.
Hail, Mary, full of grace…. (Pray the Hail Mary again.)

Leader: Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.

Response: That we may be made worthy of the promises of
Christ.

Leader: 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.

Response: Amen.
