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.
The Hail Mary prayer uses words from the Bible. When we pray it we echo the Archangel Gabriel’s and Elizabeth’s words. We also ask Mary to pray for us. See Luke 1: 28 and (41-)42.
