Regina Caeli (English and Latin)

From Easter Sunday until Pentecost, this prayer is recited instead of the Angelus.

Latin

Regina caeli, laetare, alleluia.

Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia,

Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia.

Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

Gaude et laetare, Virgo Maria, alleluia,

Quia surrexit Dominus vere, alleluia.

Oremus. Deus, qui per resurrectionem Filii tui Domini nostri Iesu Christi mundum laetificare dignatus es: praesta, quaesumus, ut per eius Genetricem Virginem Mariam perpetuae capiamus gaudia vitae. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.


English

Queen of heaven, rejoice, alleluia!

For he whom you did merit to bear, alleluia,

Has risen as he said, alleluia!

Pray for us to God, alleluia,

Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia!

For the Lord is 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 you, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, his mother, we may obtain the joys of everlasting life, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
