MEDITATION - thinking it over!
A salute, two minutes, especially at
noontime, a salute to Mary, Mother
of God, through whom came Jesus,
true God, true Man. History attests
that when Peter the Hermit ordered
the recital of the Angelus every day,
victory was never wanting to the
crusaders’ arms. Today, the tongue
of the Angelus Bell is your tongue
RECITE the ANGELUS
“The Angel of the Lord declared unto
Mary and She conceived by the Holy
Ghost.” (Hail Mary)
“Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be
it done to me according to Thy word.”
“And the Word was made Flesh and
dwelt among us.” (Genuflect)
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God,
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.
To PREVENT ONE MORTAL SIN
If every day, we begged Mary for grace
to hinder ONE mortal sin, what a
year’s service to God and souls!
O MARY, Immaculate Mother of Jesus,
we beseech thee, offer to the Eternal
Father the Precious Blood of Thy Divine
Son, to prevent at least one mortal sin
from being committed somewhere in
the world today. Amen.
CONVERSION or RETURN to FAITH
O GOD, all hearts are in Thy Hands.
Thou canst bend the most stubborn,
as it pleases Thee, and soften the most
obdurate. I beseech Thee by the Holy
Name, the Precious Blood, the Merits,
Wounds and Divine Heart of Jesus, Thy
Beloved Son, to grant the conversion
we ask. Amen.
SACRED HEART OF JESUS, Thy
Kingdom come. (300 days indul.)
SWEET HEART OF JESUS, have mercy
on us and all our brethren who have
gone astray. (100 days indul.)
O MARY, most sorrowful Mother of all
Christians, pray for us. (300 days indul.)
