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 death.

Amen.

Hail Mary Prayer

Prayer inspired by the Annunciation of the Angel Gabriel to Our Mary (Luke1, 28b), and the greeting of Saint Elisabeth, when she receives a visit of the Virgin Mary in his house (Luke 1: 42b).

In the year of 431 d. C., the dogma of the Mother of God motherhood was defined at the end of the Council of Ephesus, by the Pope St. Celestine, who, kneeling, hailed the Our Lady in these terms: "Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen”. This greeting has become the 2nd part of the Hail Mary.
