Christ is Risen as He said!
During the Easter season, we traditionally replace the Angelus prayer with the Regina Coeli. And so through Pentecost Call to Prayer: The Angelus Project features images of the Coronation of the Virgin in place of the usual Annunciation.
As we approach the "crowning" of the Easter Season with the feast of Pentecost, a splendid 15th century Coronation triptych added to the Royal Collection by Prince Albert:
|From the Royal Collection Trust|
From Easter to Pentecost, pray the Regina Coeli (in place of the Angelus) three times a day: morning, noon and evening.
Queen of Heaven, rejoice, Alleluia!
R. For he whom you deserved to bear, Alleluia!
Has risen as he said, Alleluia!
R. Pray for us to God, Alleluia!
Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, Alleluia!
For the Lord has truly risen, Alleluia!
Let us pray:
O God, who gave joy to the world through the resurrection of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
grant, we beseech thee, that through the intercession of his Mother, the Virgin Mary,
we may obtain the joys of everlasting life.
Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
