The Annunciation of the Lord

Receive, O Virgin Mary, the word
which the Lord has made know to you by the message of the angel:
You will conceive and give birth to a son, both God and man,
and you will be called blessed among women.
A virgin, you will indeed bear a son;
ever chaste and holy, you will be the mother of our Savior.

Responsory from the Office of Vigils

Fra Angelico, The Annunciation (Convent of San Marco, Florence)
