- This beautiful hymn is also known by its English name Hail Holy Queen. Pope Gregory IX (1227-1241) ordered it to be chanted after Compline on Fridays. From the 14th century down to today it has been a part of Compline for the Latin Rite. Traditionally this antiphon is recited at Compline from Trinity Sunday until Advent. A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful who devoutly recite this prayer.
- The Our Father is a prayer of perfect and unselfish love because in saying it we offer ourselves entirely to God and ask from Him the best things, not only for ourselves but also for our neighbor.
- "Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee" (Luk 1:28).
"blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus" (Luk I:42)
