Hail, Mary

 
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.
 
 
It is a prayer which has echoed through the ages with an innocent ring;
the prayer of little children lisping as they cling to their rosary beads;
the prayer of crusaders praying as they ride into battle.
 
 
Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui Jesus. Sancte Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
 
It is a prayer which we have known for as long as we remember;
the prayer to which we cling when this life seems so void of innocence;
the prayer which we take up as our weapon when we ride into the battles of life.
 
 
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.
