Office 2 – Prime
Ant. The Angel Gabriel was sent to Mary, a virgin espoused to Joseph. Ant. Missus est Gabriel Angelus ad Mariam, virginem, desponsatam Joseph.
The Little Chapter.  Is vii. 14,15
Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel. Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and to choose the good. Ecce virgo concípiet, et paráet filium, et vocábitur nomen ejus Emmánuel. Butyrum et mel cómedet, ut sciat reprobáre malum, et elígere bonum.
℟. Thanks be to God. ℟. Deo grátias.
℣. Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O sacred Virgin. ℣. Dignare me laudare te, Virgo sacrata.
℟. Give me strength against thine enemies. ℟. Da mihi virtutem contra hostes tuos.
Let us pray. Oremus.
O God, who wast pleased that thy Word, at the message of an Angel, should take flesh in the womb of the blessed Virgin Mary; grant to us, thy humble servants, that, as we believe her to be truly the Mother of God, we may be assisted also by her intercessions with thee. Through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Deus, qui de beátæ Maríae Vírginis útero Verbum tuum, Angelo nunciánte, carnem suscípere voluísti: præsta supplícibus tuis, ut qui vere eam Genetrícem Dei crédimus: ejus apud te intercessiónibus adiuvémur. Per éundem Dóminum nostrum Jesum Christum Filium tuum: Qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spirítus Sancti, Deus, per ómnia sæcula sæculórum.
℟. Amen. ℟. Amen.
