Ave, Regina Caelorum

Ave, Regina Caelorum

The Antiphon of the Blessed Virgin Mary from the Feast of the Purification to Maundy Thursday

Queen of the heavens, we hail thee,
Hail thee, Lady of all the Angels;
Thou the dawn, the door of morning
Whence the world’s true light is risen:
Joy to thee, O Virgin glorious,
Beautiful beyond all other;
Hail, and farewell, O most gracious,
Intercede for us always to Jesus.

Verse: Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O holy Virgin.
Response: Give me strength against thine enemies.

Let us pray:
Grant us, O merciful God, protection in our weakness: that we who celebrate the memory of the holy Mother of God may,
through the aid of her intercession, rise again from our sins. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
