Prayer: Dios te salve, Maria (Hail Mary) in Spanish

Dios te salve, Maria.
Llena eres de gracia:
El Señor es contigo.
Bendita tú ere entre todas las mujeres.
Y bendito es el fruto de tu vientre:
Jesús.
Santa María, Madre de Dios,
ruega por nosotros pecadores,
ahora y en la hora de nuestra muerte.
Amén.

  1. Thanks for posting the lyrics of this song to the holy Mother. I first heard this song about May 1944 in a very rural village in the island of Mindoro, Philippines. I was about 6 years old and WW II was still going. The village celebrated the annual Flores De Mayo with a procession from a small chapel which invariably endsup into the same chapel. I was reminded of the song when my brother who lives in San Diego said the song was sung in a procession in their town. Thanks again. You brought back memories of childhood. Not very pleasant, but memories nevertheless.

  2. Dear Augusto,

    Thanks for your great story. I'm sorry you had to experience the war. I'm glad this song remains in your consciousness to remind you of the providential care of Mother Mary to us. We remember Memorial Day in the U.S. on Monday.

  9. My Grandmother used to pray this everyday. As I was sitting having coffee this morning,
    parts of this prayer came to me. I couldn't remember the whole thing. I began to bother me, so I put the coffee down and had to look it up. Now here I am, the whole poem in front of me. Now I must meditate to see why my Grandmother has brought this to me. Thank you for posting it. I didn't know if she had made it up or it was a prayer.Again, Thank you.

    1. I'm so very happy that this prayer brought you back to a time with your Grandmother. I trust your grandmother has something insightful to say to you. Just share your discovery joyfully with her.
