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 Burmese – the official language of Myanmar.
It’s a Sino-Tibetan language spoken by more than 40 million people. It is a very poignant time to look to Myanmar as its people are suffering in the wake of an oppressive coup.
The military seized control on 1 February following a general election in which incumbent leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, and her National League for Democracy (NLD) party won by a landslide.
Protests have taken place since and a crackdown has seen several hundred deaths. Let us focus our prayers on Myanmar today and pray for peace and justice.
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.
