The Angelus is a short practice of devotion in honor of the Incarnation repeated three times each day: morning, noon and evening:
The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary: And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Behold the handmaid of the Lord: Be it done unto me according to Thy word.
And the Word was made Flesh: And dwelt among us.
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God that we may be made worth 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.
During Eastertide (from Easter day throughout Pentecost, and throughout the octave of Pentecost if it is celebrated):
Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia For He whom you did merit to bear, alleluia. Has risen, as he said, alleluia. Pray for us to God, alleluia.
Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia. For the Lord has truly risen, alleluia. Let us pray: O God, Who by the resurrection of Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, hast vouchsafed to make glad the whole world, grant, we beseech Thee, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His mother, we may attain the joys of eternal life, through the same Christ our Lord.
