The Angelical Salutation, or Hail Mary, is probably one of the best known prayers unique to Catholicism. It recounts the words used by the Angel Gabriel when saluting Mary in the Gospel of Luke, and ends with a request that Mary prays to God for the penitent sinner now and in the hour of their death. The Angelical Salutation is also one of the central prayers in Mariology, and one of the two prayers used with the Rosary.



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.



Ave Maria,

gratia plena,

Dominus tecum.

Benedicta tu in mulieribus,

et benedictus fructus ventris tui,

Iesus. Sancta Maria,

Mater Dei,

ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc,

et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
