Trinity in the Hail Mary

“Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.”

This is Gabriel, speaking for the Father.

“Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.”

This is Elizabeth, speaking of the Son.

“Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.

This is God’s people, speaking through the Holy Spirit.
