Prayers in Latin II: The Hail Mary

Tonight Traditium continues its series of resource-based articles supporting those wishing to learn the Rosary prayers in the language of the Church with the Hail Mary.

The Hail Mary / Ave Maria

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.


Áve María,
grátia pléna,
Dóminus técum.
Benedícta tū in muliéribus,
et benedíctus frúctus
véntris túi, Iésus.

Sáncta María,
Máter Déi,
óra pro nóbis peccatóribus,
nunc et in hóra mórtis nóstrae.

One thought on “Prayers in Latin II: The Hail Mary”

  1. Somewhere on your website I think I saw you have a page against modernism which I did not find. May I respectfully submit that there is a form of modernism which perhaps is not unworthy of serious engagement? Edmund Husserl, “Philosophy and the Crisis of European Humanity” (“Vienna Lecture”, 1935; available free on The Internet). Also Hermann Broch’s novels: “The sleepwalkers” and “The death of Virgil.” And Robert Musil’s “The man without qualities.”

    As for current culture, I think much of it does not even aspire to be modern but has become Politically Correct and postmodern, fulfilling Frederich Nietzsche’s prophesy of the coming of The Last Man: The earth has become small and on it hops The Last Man, who makes everything small. Item: Architect Robert Venturi’s bad joke on the aged, Guild House (Philadelphia PA USA). I think current if it can be called culture is neither broad nor deep: It is one-dimensional at best. Keep well!
