Regina Caeli

During the Easter season the Regina Caei is sung/recited in the place of the Angelus (The Angelus is usually at 6am, noon, and 6pm). It was customary to ring the church bells at these times as well (The Angelus Bells).


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


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