Hail Mary, Full of Grace

Hail Mary, Full of Grace

Anne Lastman

However, it was not until the 16th century that the words "Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death", were added to the Angelic salutation and Elizabeth's salutation and exclamation of joy.

"Holy Mary, Mother of God" expresses her truly having borne and given birth to the "Word" of God, Jesus, the Father's Son, and consubstantial with the Father.

He, by whom the universe came into being, rested peacefully in her Holy womb, as a human child, and took from her her human flesh while he Himself carrying His divine soul and nature, thus according Him true God and true man state and according Mary the appellations "Mother of God" and "Full of grace."

Pray for us now during the journey in this lifetime but especially as we make the final walk towards the Father's house, at the hour of our death, be with us and finally present us to the Father and His and your Son, Jesus.
