Catholics refer to the Virgin Mary as the Mother of God, and as the Mother of the Church. This special status is the reason why there are many devotions dedicated to Her. The most famous Marian Prayer is the ‘Hail Mary’ (in Latin Ave Maria). This beautiful prayer exists in many languages, including Italian. Italy is very often associated with Catholic faith, as it is the seat of the Vatican.
“Ave, o Maria, piena di grazia,
il Signore è con te.
Tu sei benedetta fra le donne
e benedetto è il frutto del tuo seno, Gesù.
Santa Maria, Madre di Dio,
prega per noi peccatori,
adesso e nell'ora della nostra morte.
