Let us all rejoice in the Lord and make a festive day in honor of the blessed Virgin Mary our Queen: at whose solemnity the Angels rejoice and give praise to the Son of God. (Psalm) My heart hath uttered a good word: I speak my song to the King. Glory be to the Father. Let us all…
Grant, O Lord, we beseech Thee, to those who are celebrating this solemnity of the blessed Virgin Mary our Queen: that safe in her protection we may deserve to enjoy present peace and future glory. Through our Lord.
Epistle – Ecclesiasticus 24:5,7,9-11,30-31
I came out of the mouth of the Most High, the firstborn before all creatures; I dwelt in the highest places, and my throne is in a pillar of a cloud. I have stood in all the earth and in every people, and in every nation I have had the chief rule; and by my power I have trodden under my feet the hearts of all, the high and low. He that hearkeneth to me shall not be confounded: and they that work by me shall not sin; they that explain me shall have life everlasting.
He hath on His garment on and on His thigh written: King of kings and Lord of lords. The Queen stands at His right hand, decked with gold from Ophir
Alleluia, alleluia. Hail, Queen of mercy! Do thou protect us from the enemy and at the hour of death receive us. Alleluia.
Gospel – Luke 1:26-33
At that time: the Angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee called Nazareth, to a Virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David: and the Virgin’s name was Mary. And the Angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. Who having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be. And the Angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.
Behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb and shalt bring forth a son: and thou shalt call His name Jesus. He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of David His father: and He shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. And of His kingdom there shall be no end.
That Mary springs from royal stock shines out: with most devout mind and spirit do we beg the help of her prayers.
Accept, O Lord, we beseech Thee, the gifts which Thy Church in her joy doth offer Thee: may we receive in return, through the merits and intercession of the blessed Virgin Mary our Queen, all help for salvation. Through our Lord.
O Queen of the world most worthy, Mary, Virgin perpetual, intercede on behalf of our peace and safety, thou who didst bring forth Christ the Lord, the Savior of us all.
We have reached the end, O Lord, of the solemnities for this festivity of holy Mary our Queen: in her honor exultantly we performed them: may her intercession be salutary on our behalf. Through our Lord.
