Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.
Little known fact about me: I compose music, too. Late in life, actually. Visit my website: http://www.CatholicNotions.com and listen to some heartfelt music to Our Lord, Our Lady, My Family etc. If you are on Twitter come visit me http://www.twitter.com/CatholicNotion.com
Like Aaron Neville and Linda Rondstadt, I am grateful to Our Blessed Mother’s prayers, to Jesus for me. Grateful to God for His Son’s continual ever present graces to over come personal sins. Deo Gratis!
Ave Maria. Amen! (Ave Maria is the Latin version of the prayer called, the “Hail Mary.”) The first part comes from Saint Luke’s Gospel. I think the second chapter. The second part of the Hail Mary, after the Holy Name of JESUS is the part the Catholic Church added for this prayer. The Church never added it to Scripture: for no one can add or subtract from Scripture. Nope, the Church added it onto the Ave Maria aka Hail Mary Prayer. After the Mass, Our Father Prayer, and the Gloria Patri Prayer, I love this prayer the most!
Sung by the Daughters of Mary (300 Days Indulgence).
I offer this song, up for those affected by Storms at Sea, Hurricanes and Typhoons: especially those affected by Hurricane Isaac and the Typhoon in Korea.
Our Lady Star of the Sea, pray for us!
My favorite rendition of the Ave Maria was composed by Caccini and is performed by Andrea Bocelli. Here it is.
