Latin: Ave Maria gratia plena. Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus
nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
