I am posting the video of this song in honor of St. Mary’s Fast which has started today. The video was taken in an informal setting late night at Virgin Mary & St. Moses the Strong Abbey in Corpus Christi, Texas. Hope you all enjoy it and may you have a blessed fast!

This is a quick translation of the song:
In the early morning, while I was praying,
A luminous angel, came and told me,
Peace to you O highly favored,
Exalted above all mankind.
O beautiful angel, How sweet you are,
How luminous you are, How spiritual you are,
Save us from destruction,
O Angel, so beautiful…, O Angel…
I said to my angel, Where did you come from?
I got goosebumps, I’m awestricken,
I’m not married, and I have no husband,
They will stone me, O my angel.
The Holy Spirit will come upon you,
and His power will overshadow you,
and the one who shall be born from you,
The holy one who will be called the Son of the Highest.
