Regina Caeli

Deus, qui per resurrectionem Filii tui, Domini nostri Iesu Christi, mundum lætificare dignatus es:
præsta, quæsumus, ut per eius Genitricem Virginem Mariam, perpetuæ capiamus gaudia vitæ.
Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

O God, who through the resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ gave rejoicing to the world, grant, we pray, that through his Mother, the Virgin Mary, we may obtain the joys of everlasting life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Da Vinci’s Virgin and Child, or, Madonna of the Carnation, from the Alte Pinakothek in Munich.

…Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia,
Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

…[He] has risen, as He said, alleluia.
Pray for us to God, alleluia.

In nine days we celebrate the Solemnity of Pentecost when the apostles gathered around the Mother of God and were empowered by the Holy Spirit, that same spirit that empowers us, to go forth and and proclaim the Gospel to all nations.

Therefore as the apostles loved her so too we cultivate within our hearts through music, poetry and art a deep veneration of Mary, The Queen of the Apostles.

Regina cæli, lætare, alleluia:
R. Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia…

Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia.
The Son whom you merited to bear, alleluia…
