Regina Caeli

With Easter, we will start the last of the Marian antiphons. We’ve already worked on the Salve Regina, the Alma Redemptoris Mater, and now the Ave Regina Caelorum. The priests have been very impressed with how well the community has done with these antiphons! Please take a moment to follow along with the following video for the melody of the Regina Caeli accompanied by the Gregorian chant.

Latin Text & English Translation

V. Regina caeli, laetare, alleluia.
R. Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia.
V. Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia.
R. Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

V. Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia.
R. For He whom you did merit to bear, alleluia.
V. Has risen, as he said, alleluia.
R. Pray for us to God, alleluia.

The Regina Caeli takes the place of the Angelus during the period of Paschaltide. When this happens, the following versicle, response, and prayer are added:

V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.
R. For the Lord has truly risen, alleluia.

Let us pray. O God, who gave joy to the world through the resurrection of Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant we beseech Thee, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may obtain the joys of everlasting life. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
