The Angelus is a prayer used to commemorate the announcment of the Incarnation by the angel, Gabriel, to Mary.
It is usually recited three times daily---6 am, Noon, and 6 pm. It is the official prayer of the Project Gabriel Ministry at Holy Cross.
The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary:
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,
Behold the handmaid of the Lord: Be it done unto me according to Thy word.
And the Word was made Flesh: And dwelt among us.
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God,
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,
