The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary:
And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Behold the handmaid of the Lord:
Be it done to me according to your word.
And the Word was made Flesh:
And dwelt among us.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray.
Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ, your Son, was made known by the message of an angel may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord.
