50 Days of Easter - Day 2

Taking a leaf out of Meg Hunter-Kilmer's book (with this fantastic post on 50 ways to celebrate Easter), I thought it would be cool to do an Easter-themed post a day for the entire Paschal season this year. This will be on FB and Twitter with the hashtag #50daysofEaster

This is actually Day 2, since Easter Sunday starts the season. Yesterday was busy with Masses and recovery from the Triduum!

Today we have the Easter Marian antiphon, the Regina Coeli, chanted here by the incomparable schola Gregoriana Mediolanensis, directed by Giovanni Vannini out of Milan.


Regina coeli laetare, Alleluia, 
Quia quem meruisti portare. Alleluia, 
Resurrexit sicut dixit, Alleluia. 
Ora pro nobis Deum. Alleluia.

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.


Alégrate, Reina del cielo; aleluya.
Porque el que mereciste llevar en tu seno; aleluya.
Ha resucitado, según predijo; aleluya.
Ruega por nosotros a Dios; aleluya.
