What are Ember Days?
O Jesus, eternal Priest,
keep our pastor Father Michael Magiera within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart,
where none may touch him.
Keep unstained his anointed hands,
which daily touch Your Sacred Body.
Keep unsullied his lips,
daily purpled with your Precious Blood.
Keep pure and unearthly his heart,
sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.
Let Your holy love surround him and
shield him from the world’s contagion.
Bless his labors with abundant fruit and
may the souls to whom he ministers be their joy and consolation here and in heaven their beautiful and
everlasting crown. Amen.
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 thou 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, etc.
V. And the Word was made Flesh.
R. And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary, etc.
V. Pray for us, O 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 we to whom the Incarnation of Christ Thy 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. Amen.
Here is a short history of the Angelus Prayer (HERE)
Hail, Holy Queen enthroned above, oh Maria.
Hail, Mother of mercy and of love, oh Maria.
Triumph all ye cherubim! Sing with us ye seraphim!
Heaven and earth resound the hymn!
Salve, Salve, Salve Regina.
