The Angelus: English and Latin
A partial indulgence is granted the Christian faithful who devoutly recite the Angelus
and the Regina caeli during the proper seasons. (The Angelus
is said throughout the year except during Eastertide, from Easter Sunday through
Pentecost, when the Regina caeli is recited in its place.) Accordgin to custom,
these prayers are recited at dawn, noon, and in the evening (Ench. Indul. n.9).
In the Angelus, the first part of the Hail Mary is said by the leader, while the
others respond with the second part. The Hail Mary can be found in English and Latin on
the "Prayers of the Rosary" page.
V. The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.
V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done unto me according to your word.
V. And the Word was made flesh.
R. And dwelt among us.
V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R. 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.
V. Angelus Domini nuntiavit Mariae.
R. Et concepit de Spiritu Sancto.
V. Ecce ancilla Domini.
R. Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum.
V. Et Verbum caro factum est.
R. Et habitavit in nobis.
V. Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genitrix.
R. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.
Oremus. Gratiam tuam, quaesumus, Domine, mentibus nostris infunde; ut, qui, angelo
nuntiante, Christi Filii tui incarnationem cognovimus, per passionem ejus et crucem, ad
resurrectionis gloriam perducamur. Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum. R. Amen.
