The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
May it be done unto me according to your word.
And the Word became flesh.
And lived 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: O Lord, it was through the message of an angel that we learned of the incarnation of your Son Christ. Pour your grace into our hearts, and by his passion and cross bring us to the glory of his resurrection. Through the same christ, our Lord.
