Hail Mary (from the Latin Ave Maria) is a traditional Catholic and Eastern Orthodox prayer calling for the intercession of Mary, the mother of Jesus. The Ave Maria developed in the Middle Ages. The first part of the prayer is the salutation of the Archangel Gabriel as reported in the Luke 1:28 - "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is wit thee". The second is from the greeting given to Mary by her cousin Elizabeth in Luke 1:42 - "Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb". The closing petition - "Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death." - is from the Roman Catholic Council of Trent.

English

Hail, Mary, full of grace!
The Lord is with thee;
Blessed art thou amongst 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.

Latin

Ave María, grátia plena!
Dóminus tecum;
Benedícta tu in muliéribus,
Et benedíctus fructus ventris tui,
Iesus!

Sancta María, Mater Dei,
Ora pro nobis peccatóribus
Nunc et in hora mortis nostræ.

Amen.
