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 head to Spain to pray the Hail Mary in Spanish.
It’s a Romance language that originated in the Iberian Peninsula. There are nearly 500 million native speakers worldwide, mainly in Spain and the Americas. It’s the world’s second-most spoken native language after Mandarin Chinese.
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.
