Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
Response: May it be done unto me according to your word.
And the Word was made flesh.

Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.

Let us pray: O Lord, it was through the message of an angel that we learned of the Incarnation of Christ, your Son. Pour your grace into our hearts, and by his Passion and cross bring us to the glory of his Resurrection. Through Christ, our Lord.
