The Angelus Comes Straight From Saint Luke

"In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the House of David, and the virgin's name was Mary (Lk 1:26). "Rejoice, full of grace! The Lord is with you!" (Lk 1:28). "Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb" (Lk 1:42). Many Catholics still do not know this prayer by heart. Then why not memorize it and say it at least once a day at noon? It would be a beautiful gift to the Blessed Mother during the month of May, in thanksgiving for her graces! Saint Louis de Montfort, also, wrote that every time we recite the Angelus, Mary feels the same joy as the one she felt when she received the visit of the Archangel Gabriel in Nazareth.
