The Apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Lourdes

February 11

Epistle  •  Apocalypse 11:19; 12:1, 10

Lesson from the Book of the Apocalypse of Blessed John the Apostle.

[The vision of the Woman clothed with the sun.]

And the temple of God was opened in Heaven; and the ark of His testament was seen in His temple, and there were lightnings and voices, and an earthquake and great hail. And a great sign appeared in Heaven: a Woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under Her feet, and on Her head a crown of twelve stars. And I heard a loud voice in Heaven saying: Now is come salvation and strength and the Kingdom of our God and the power of His Christ.



Gospel  •  Luke 1:26-28

Continuation of the holy Gospel according to St. Luke. 

[Gospel of the Annunciation by the Angel to the Blessed Virgin Mary.]

At that time the Angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, to a Virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David: and the Virgin’s name was Mary. And the Angel being come in, said unto Her: Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with Thee: Blessed art Thou among women. Who having heard, was troubled at his saying: and thought with Herself what manner of salutation this should be. And the Angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for Thou hast found grace with God: behold Thou shalt conceive in Thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son, and Thou shalt call His Name Jesus.
