CHRIST IS RISEN! ALLELUIA, ALLELUIA!!
The Season of Easter continues until the celebration of Pentacost, Sunday May 24th, which is 50 days after the Lord's Resurrection.
During the Easter Season, instead of praying the Angelus--prayed three times daily--we pray the Regina Coeli or Queen of Heaven.
Queen of Heaven rejoice, Alleluia!
For He whom you merited to bear, Alleluia!
Has risen as He said, Alleluia!
Pray for us to God, Alleluia!
Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, Alleluia!
Because the Lord is truly risen, Alleluia!
Let us pray:
O God, who by the Reurrection of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
granted joy to the whole world; grant we beseech Thee
that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother,
we may lay hold of he joys of eternal life.
Through the same Christ our Lord.
Some time back I made reference to a particular bible that I like to use in preparing homilies and just in general as it also offers study questions. The name of the bible is The New Catholic Answer Bible.
For more information on this particular bible go to www.TheNCAB.com It is offered by Fireside Catholic Publishing. You can also check Amazon for new and used.
