Ordinary Time

We return to Ordinary Time today with Week 6 having celebrated the Feast of Pentecost on Sunday.

During the Easter Season we pray the Regina Caeli and now we return to praying the Angelus at 6am, midday and 6pm.

The angel of the Lord appeared unto Mary,
And she conceived by the Holy Spirit;
Hail, Mary ...
Holy Mary ...

Behold the handmaid of the Lord
Be it done unto me according to your word;
Hail, Mary ...
Holy Mary ...

And the Word was made flesh
And dwelt among us;
Hail, Mary ...
Holy 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, your Son was made know by the message of an Angel, may, by his passion and cross, be brought to the glory of his resurrection, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

We can pray this beautiful prayer wherever we are, we don't need to be in church. We sanctify our day by this invocation to Our Lady.
