The Regina Caeli
We say this prayer in place of the Angelus during Easter time.
Queen of heaven, rejoice, Alleluia.
For he whom you deserved to bear, Alleluia
Has risen as he said. Alleluia.
Pray for us to God. Alleluia.
Rejoice and be glad, O virgin Mary. Alleluia
For the Lord is truly risen. Alleluia
Let us pray
O God, who by the Resurrection of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, granted joy to the whole world: grant, we beg you, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, his Mother, we may lay hold of the joys of eternal life. Through the same Christ our Lord.
