The Angelus Prayer (English)
V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen
V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done unto me according to thy word.
Hail, Mary …
V. And the Word was made flesh.
R. And dwelt among us.
Hail, Mary …
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray: Pour forth, we beseech thee, O Lord, thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his resurrection. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Spiritual Communion Prayer (St. Alphosus M. de Ligouri)
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in Holy Communion. I love you above all things and I desire you in my soul. Since I cannot receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually in my heart, as though you are already there, I embrace you and unite myself wholly to you; permit not that I should ever be separated from you.
Archbishop Etienne will start streaming Masses daily at 8:30 a.m. on the Archdiocese of Seattle Facebook page or at https://vimeo.com/archdioceseofseattle.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Archbishop Etienne has just finished recording a message to the people of the Archdiocese. In the video, he expresses that out of abundance of caution, and despite our best efforts to slow this rapidly spreading virus down, he has suspended all public Masses effective immediately. We have not seen a contagion of this magnitude in our country for 100 years and it is important that we take it seriously. We recognize that there are many implications to this decision and there will be additional communication forthcoming as the situation unfolds.
Some of you will undoubtedly have unique and area specific questions about this news, but we want to be clear that this is not a recommendation, this is a directive from the Archbishop out of care and love for all of our people throughout the Archdiocese of Seattle.
Our Lady of Seattle, pray for us!
