Prayer on back: The Angelus
V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary,
R. and she conceived of the Holy Spirit. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee;
blessed art though 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.
V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord,
R. Be it done unto me according to Thy word. Hail Mary,...
V. And the Word was made flesh,
R. And dwelt amongst us. Hail Mary,...
V. Pray for us, O most holy Mother of God,
R. 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, as we have known the Incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, by the message of an Angel,
so by His Passion and Cross we may be brought to the glory of the Resurrection,
through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
