Need To Brush Up On Your Basic Latin Prayers? Part II
Today's lesson, the Ave Maria

First off... the Hail Mary in 150 languages. From Achinese (spoken in Aceh, Sumatra, Indonesia) to Zurituutsch (Spoken in the canton of Z├╝rich, northern Switzerland).

But on with today's lesson... in the Official Language of The Church, click here for the WAV file

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.

In case you missed it, here is Venerable Pope Pius XII saying the Pater Noster (Our Father).

Cardinal Mahony has just said that Latin was only used for a small part of Church history; what he meant was a small part of his ministry - or perhaps he did not mean the Catholic Church.
