On The Angelic Salutation And Faith

The Angelic Salutation:

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.


Ave Maria gratia plena Dominus tecum

Benedicta tu in mulieribus

Et benedictus Fructus uentris tui Iesus

Sancta Maria mater Dei ora pro nobis peccatoribus

Nunc et in hora mortis


C.f. Luke 11:28f

While Jesus was saying these things, one of the women in the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, “Blessed is the womb that bore You and the breasts at which You nursed.” But He said, “On the contrary, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.”
