Happy Easter to all!
Each day in school the boys and I break for lunch at noon and together say the Angelus. But with Eastertide upon us, we substitute the Regina Coeli. This is a prayer that I've not before memorized, but as we recite it for the whole of the Easter season, I'm sure I won't need a cheat sheet by the season's close.
Queen of Heaven rejoice, alleluia: For He whom you merited to bear, alleluia, Has risen as He said, alleluia. Pray for us to God, alleluia.
V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.
R. Because the Lord is truly risen, alleluia.
Let us pray: O God, who by the Resurrection of Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, granted joy to the whole world: grant we beseech Thee, 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.
