Regina Caeli

Posted by james0235 on March 29, 2010

Being that it is Holy Week I ‘ll post this now as I don’t know that I will be spending much time at all online in the next few days.

Beginning with Compline on Holy Saturday the Seasonal Marian Antiphon changes from the Ave Regina Caelorum to the Regina Caeli. The Regina Caeli is prayed until the evening of Trinity Sunday. In addition to its use in the Liturgy of the Hours at the end of Compline (Night Prayer) it also replaces the Angelus during the Easter Season.

Regina cæli, lætare, alleluia:

Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia.

Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia.

Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

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.
