Ave Maria

 

seen in  St. Mary's Chapel in Würzburg - I observed many people praying here and lightening a candle, a ritual I like doing, too, although being a Protestant, but Martin Luther was also a fan of Maria/Mary. I like the female accent in  the Catholic Church whose hierarchy is dominated by men, though.


Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and in the hour of our death. Amen.

I also light candles in churches when I get the opportunity, Philine
Ave Maria c'est ma chanson préférée merci pour ce partage tout comme j'aime ..
Philine: Merci beaucoup, Claudine!

Je vous salue Marie, pleine de grâce ;
Le Seigneur est avec vous.
Vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes
Et Jésus, le fruit de vos entrailles, est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu,
Priez pour nous, pauvres pécheurs,
Maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort.
Amen.
The lighting of a candle is something even I do on occasions. It can be comforting somehow

Our lady is held in high regard, as you know. I enjoy the Hail Holy Queen also.
Are these the same statue in different light? Being raised in the Catholic Church has made me fond of Mary.
Philine: Yes, the same statue in different light. Many thanks, Care! Now I know why you once chose the name 'Mary'.
A very meaningful post Philine. If you get time take a look at mine today if only for the music.

It's a simple but beautiful setting. I can see why people like to pray at her feet.
