Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you.
Mary understood throughout her life how richly God had blessed her.
The lily is a symbol of Mary’s purity and openness to God’s will. Reflectupon this beautiful image and how you might open yourself more fully to God’s grace.
Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.
We honor Mary as the mother of Jesus as our mother as well. The strawberry plant symbolizes Mary’s fruitfulness. Enjoy the pleasure of eating a strawberry or other pieces of fruit. Reflect on how God is calling you tobe the bearer of life to all those you meet today.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners . . . .
We turn to Mary as an intercessor, one who prays on our behalf. The lily ofthe valley is also known as “Our Lady’s Tears” due to the shape of the smallblossoms. Let Mary’s compassion and kindness wash over you when askingher for prayers of comfort and consolation.
Now and at the hour of our death.
The Rosary includes meditations on both the joys and sorrows in Mary’slife. The rose has symbolized these mysteries since ancient times. AsMary stood vigil beneath her Son’s cross, let her faith and trust be a modelof hope and inspiration for you each and every day of your life.
