Hail Mary

Most familiar prayer used by the Church in honor of the Mother of God, made up of the salutation of Angel Gabriel, the greeting of Saint Elizabeth (Luke 1), and a petition framed by the Church.
Hail Mary! Full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
