The Angelus

Dear readers,

Please enjoy this short history of the Angelus that I found today. The Angelus is a short prayer that can be prayed around noon and shows us how Mary was chosen to bring God into humanity. The Angelus is a short prayer and it is BEAUTIFUL! Enjoy

The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary; and she conceived by the Holy Spirit. (Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee...)

Behold the handmaid of the Lord; Be it done unto me according to your 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 you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, you Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his resurrection, though the same Christ our Lord. Amen!
