The ‘Hail Mary’, or Ave Maria, is the most famous and the most comprehensive Marian Prayer to Mary the Blessed Virgin, Mother of Jesus. This prayer exists in many languages, including Portuguese.
“Ave-Maria, cheia de graça!
O Senhor é convosco,
bendita sois vós entre as mulheres,
e bendito é o Fruto do vosso ventre, Jesus. Santa Maria Mãe de Deus,
rogai por nós os pecadores,
agora e na hora de nossa morte.
