Why not pray the Angelus? Set your mobile phone to chime at each day one or more of the three set hours? The Traditional hours are 6 am 12 noon and 6 pm. You might like to synchronise your Angelus prayer with a friend or family member.

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 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.

V. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
R. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world without end, Amen.

      Hello Angelos, it’s a beautiful image isn’t it?
      It seems to be a stained glass window, but I’ve had a little look around and can’t seem to tell where it comes from or when it was made. If we find out we’ll let you know and include the information with the image. Blessings!
