Hail Mary – Latin – Sung
It's the last day of the month of May - the last day of the Month of Mary. As we focus our prayer on Our Lady, you can listen to our audio series ‘Full of Grace’. We pick a different language each day for the Hail Mary. Today, we conclude by listening to the Hail Mary sung in Latin by the Schola Gregoriana recorded some years ago at the Pallottine Seminary in Ołtarzew, Poland. You're listening to the Ave Maria from Gregorian Vespers in honour of Saint Vincent Pallotti (Vesperae de Confessore non Pontifice). The Schola Gregoriana was conducted by Father Dariusz Smolarek. Supporting our ‘Full of Grace’ series, many people have sent us – through Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp voice notes and email – recitations of this sacred prayer that we pray through the decades of the Rosary. The aim is that we stand in solidarity with believers the world over and entrust our joys and sorrows (and everything in-between) to Mary. Audio Credit With thanks to Paterm on Wikimedia. Licence
