The Marion Prayer
Hail Mary

This classical version of the Ave Maria, is based upon words taken from the Gospel of St. Luke and the words of the Archangel Gabriel at the Annunciation, as well as Elizabeth’s greeting to Mary at the Visitation.

The lyrics of the original version are in Latin and are modelled on the Marion Prayer also known as the Hail Mary. Additional words and endings have been added throughout the centuries, with the current form of the prayer becoming the standard form in the 16th century.

The prayer is symbolic of Mary’s importance, being chosen by God to bear the Saviour child, Jesus. Mary is the Christian symbol of the Divine Feminine, Our Blessed Mother and her energy and power is sought to watch over us and protect us. She is also invoked in child birth to give protection and strength.

The Goddess is the Universal Mother and has been known by many names throughout our history, honoured in one form or another by every nation.
