The Annunciation

We celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation today, and with it Mary's fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum, let it be done unto me according to thy word. With that righteous yes salvation came into the world, may we echo it. But I won't bang on, here's the Angelus:

V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.R. And she conceived of the Holy Ghost.
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.
V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.R. Be it done unto me according to thy word.
Hail Mary, etc.
V. And the Word was made Flesh. (genuflect you heathen)R. And dwelt among us.
 Hail Mary, etc.
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray: We beseech thee, O Lord, pour thy grace into our hearts; that as we have known the Incarnation of thy Son Jesus Christ by the message of an angel, so by his (cross yourselves, pagans) cross and passion we may be brought unto the glory of his resurrection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

May the Blessed Ever Virgin Mary intercede for you, the hosts of Angels watch over you and may God bless you all, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Will the President's hope for a return to normal at Easter work out? Will the angel of death Pass Over the homes of the righteous?

I'm standing by.

Prayers Up!

Adrienne said...

Idaho shut down. No Easter Mass for us. Sigh...

LSP said...

Same here, LL, and I kinda think we'll be celebrating Easter at home. But not to worry, the Kennedy Center's got lotsa cash.

LSP said...

Always, Brig! And the Angelus is a good one.

Sorry to hear that, Adrienne. Does this mean some kind of virtual Mass? I don't like that and haven't watched one. Of course I can always go private, but still.
