Regina Caeli

Apr 7, 2013

While many Catholics are familiar with the Angelus prayer, fewer know the Easter Anthem Regina Caeli. This prayer replaces the Angelus for the Easter Season, from Easter Sunday until Pentecost. 

While it can be recited in English, this is one of the few remaining prayers that is still commonly sung around the world in Latin. It is simple to learn. You can pick it up easily with the help of this clip:


Queen of heaven, rejoice, alleluia: 

For He whom you merited to bear, alleluia, 

Has risen, as He said, alleluia. 
Pray for us to God, alleluia.
