Closing in on the last few days of our ‘Full of Grace’ series celebrating devotion to Our Lady, we’re looking east to Russia today.
Listen to the Hail Mary in Russian – an East Slavic language that is part of the Indo-European language family.
With more than 260 million speakers worldwide, Russian is the most spoken Slavic language and the most spoken native language in Europe.
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.
