The Angelus Prayer

The Angelus is a traditional Catholic prayer that is usually recited three times a day – in the morning, at noon, and in the evening – to commemorate the Incarnation of Jesus Christ and to seek the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Here is the traditional text of the Angelus prayer:

The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary: 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. Amen.

Behold the handmaid of the Lord: Be it done unto me according to Thy word.

Hail Mary, etc.

And the Word was made Flesh: And dwelt among us.

Hail Mary, etc.

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

The Angelus is a beautiful prayer that highlights the role of Mary in the history of salvation and seeks her intercession in our lives. It is a simple yet powerful reminder of the mystery of the Incarnation, and a call to deepen our faith and trust in God’s love and mercy.
