May is the Month of Mary. As we focus our prayer on Our Lady, you can listen to our audio series ‘Full of Grace’.
Today we pray the Hail Mary in Arabic.
Arabic is a Semitic language and the lingua franca of the Arab world. In all its forms, Arabic is spoken by as many as 422 million people.
There are many Arab Christian communities in the Middle East and beyond. Christians have significantly influenced and contributed to Arabic culture and there are as many as two million Arab Christians.
The power of prayer overcomes the difficulties we face with the COVID19 pandemic. We have been sent – through Facebook messenger, WhatsApp voice notes and email – recitations of this sacred prayer that we pray through the decades of the Rosary.
The aim is that we stand in solidarity with believers the world over and entrust our joys and sorrows (and everything in-between) to Mary.
Our audio is truly global – for example our Burmese Hail Mary comes from Yangon engulfed in a frightening coup that certainly needs our prayers.
