Today is the last day of Eastertide. During Eastertide we use Regina Coeli instead of Angelus :
Joy to thee, O Queen of Heaven, Alleluia!
He whom thou wast meet to bear, Alleluia!
As he promised, hath arisen, Alleluia!
Pour for us to Him thy prayer, Alleluia!
V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, Alleluia!
R. For the Lord is risen indeed, Alleluia!
Let us pray.
O God, who by the resurrection of thy Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, hast vouchsafed to bring joy to the whole world, grant, we beseech thee, that aided by the prayers of his Mother, the Virgin Mary, we too may be brought to the joys of eternal life. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Well we are semi back the normal : the new floor has been laid, and a temporary wooden Altar set up, but the new stonework - the tabernacle base and the Altar supports - will not be here until the early days of next week. And so I think it is probably wise to wait to resume the daily Mass at St.Felix until Friday. We are most grateful to the Sisters for having accommodated us on weekdays during these past few weeks, and especially last week, when they were in Retreat, and it was not particularly convenient to them to do so.
