THE Angelical Salutation or Hail Mary

When the moment came in which God chose to become man, God the Father sent His messenger, the Archangel Gabriel, to the Virgin Mary to tell Her She was chosen to be the Mother of God. The words of this prayer come in part from Gabriel’s message to Mary.

Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee; blessed art Thou among women, and blessed is Thy Son, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, pray for us, sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
