The Annunciation of the Lord

"The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary, and she conceived of the Holy Spirit" This is the introduction to the Angelus prayer. The prayer sums up the mystery of the incarnation - the angel's message to Mary and her Yes to give birth to Jesus Christ.


The Annunciation by Murillo, 1655-1660, Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg

When the church bells are rung three times three morning, noon and night, it is the Angelus which is prayed in churches and monasteries.

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 . . . 

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 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. 

(If this Feast falls on Palm Sunday or on any day in Holy Week, it is transferred from 25. March to Low Monday, the Monday after the Sunday after Easter. This is why it is celebrated on Monday 9. April this year, with high mass at 18:00.)
