Say the prayer:Hail Mary, full of Grace,The Lord is with thee.Blessed art thou among women,And blessed is the fruitOf thy womb, Jesus.Holy Mary,Mother of God,Pray for us sinners now,And at the hour of death. Amen.
If you’re Orthodox ...
If you’re Orthodox, the prayer omits the plea to Mary at the end. Translations from the Greek differ, but here’s one:Rejoice, O Virgin Mother of God, Mary, full of grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, For thou hast borne the Savior of our souls.
