Let’s Learn Latin: The Hail Mary

Have you memorized the Our Father yet? If you have good! If you haven’t, then check out the first lesson in this series.

The Hail Mary is undoubtedly one of the most powerful prayers that we Catholics have at our disposal. Many saints have taught that Satan hates the Hail Mary, which is part of the reason why he hates the Rosary. Additionally, since Latin is the language of the Church, Satan hates prayers when spoken in Latin. So what happens when you combine the awesome power of the Hail Mary with that of Latin? Boom! An instant weapon against Satan and his ilk.

As I did last time, I’ll give you the prayer below, and we’ll memorize this together. If you know the Hail Mary, I ask that you consider sharing and encourage your fellow Catholics to join in on learning this excellent prayer.

Without further ado:

Áve María, grátia pléna,
Dóminus técum.
Benedícta tu in muliéribus,
et benedíctus frúctus véntris túi, Iésus
Sáncta María, Máter Déi,
óra pro nóbis peccatóribus,
nunc et in hóra mórtis nóstrae.

Amen.

As I said in the last post, we Catholics should know our prayers and responses in Latin. If we expect our priests to start learning and offering the Traditional Latin Mass, we should also do our part. Priests mostly have to learn a brand new Mass when going from the Novus Ordo to the Traditional Latin Mass. The least we can do is be knowledgeable with our responses so that we can assist in the way that we laity can.

Thank you for joining me in this second lesson, and look for future lessons where we will continue to expand our knowledge and dive further into the prayers of our faith.

Let’s Learn Latin: The Our Father

One of my goals for this year is to learn more prayers in Latin. At one point in time, I was able to pray the Rosary in Latin, and it was pretty cool. However, over time, I’ve allowed my Latin to get rusty despite frequent attendance at the Latin Mass. That said, I thought it’d be fun to encourage you all to learn some Latin alongside me. We can go on this journey together.

Now, a simple Google search for “Our Father in Latin” would give you plenty of results, and then you could be off on your way. But what is the fun in that?

For those of you who know the prayer, good job, and keep on plugging along! I ask that you think of someone you know who might need some help with this prayer and pass it along to them. Share this on Facebook, Twitter, or whatever social media platform you prefer.

Without further ado, the Our Father in Latin:

Pater noster qui es in coelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum;
adveniat regnum tuum,
fiat voluntas tua,
sicut in coelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
et ne nos inducas in tentationem
sed libera nos a malo.
Amen.

As laity, we need to learn the language of the Church, which has been and always will be Latin. If we desire our priests to offer the Traditional Latin Mass, then we should do our part and learn our prayers, as well as our responses in Latin. Priests have an enormous task before them to learn the entire Mass in Latin, along with various postures and positions that are different than that of the Novus Ordo.

Thank you for joining me in this first lesson, and look for future lessons where we will continue to expand our knowledge and dive further into the prayers of our faith.

Let’s Learn Latin: The Hail Mary is the next lesson.
