Hail Myriam, full of grace, the Lord is with thee...
The angel Gabriel's greeting.
Blessed art thou among women...
This from her kinswoman Elisabeth who was inspired to exclaim this while Mary was spending time with her and Zacharias and coming to terms with the enormity of what had been asked of her, and who also was pregnant, with John the Baptist. "Who am I, that the Mother of My Lord should visit me..."
Blessed is the fruit of thy womb...
Called out by a person in the crowd while Jesus was about His ministry.
The ripples of God throwing Mary into the pool of Humanity still cause disturbance in life today.
May she always help us find her Son and Saviour, Our Lord and God, Jesus Christ; and in knowing Him, know ourselves, that we forgive and love and live in peace.
