Celebrating devotion to Our Lady, today’s ‘Full of Grace’ brings us the Hail Mary in Armenian. An Indo-European language, the official language of Armenia belongs to an independent branch of which it is the only member.
Armenian is widely spoken in Armenia and throughout the diaspora. Its writing system, the Armenian alphabet, originally consisted of 36 original letters and was introduced in 405 AD by the priest Mesrop Mashtots.
There are approximately seven million Armenian speakers throughout the world.
Supporting our ‘Full of Grace’ series, many people have been sent us – 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.
