Regina Caeli

Leader: Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia.
Response:For He whom you did merit to bear, alleluia.
Leader: Has risen, as he said, alleluia.
Response: Pray for us to God, alleluia.
Leader: Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.
Response: 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.

For the next 50 days, until Pentecost closes out the Easter season, the Angelus is replaced by the Regina Caeli.
This is a hundred year old statue of Our Lady with the child Jesus in my parish church. Lovely, isn't it?
