Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.
Here’s what just a few of the saints have to say about the impact of praying even One Hail Mary.
“You must know when you ‘hail’ Mary, she immediately greets you!” -St. Bernadino of Siena
“All my work began with a simple Hail Mary for Our Lady’s help.” – St. Don Bosco
“Satan and hell tremble when I repeat ‘Hail Mary’.” -St. Thomas a Kempis
“…the truths contained in the Hail Mary are so sublime, so wonderful that no man or Angel could fully understand them.” -St. Jerome
“Desist, dear child, from your labor for no prayer you could possibly compose would give me the joy and delight of the Hail Mary.” -Our Lady to St. Mechtilde
“The Hail Mary is a sharp and flaming shaft which, joined to the Word of God, gives the preacher the strength to pierce, move, and convert the most hardened hearts.” -St. Louis de Montfort
If simply saying one Hail Mary offers all these benefits, imagine what happens when praying the entire rosary!
