When Children Learn How to Pray...

Children are special of their simplicity.. I came across this site of 'Children Learn to Pray' (inspired by Krizia's post :) .. It has a really easy to be chewed understanding about Hail Mary when children learn it.. Maybe it also good for us to once rediscover our faith, in a simple way like a child... Isn't this prayer like saying " Hi, Mommy.........!" :)

The Hail Mary
by Victor Hoagland, C.P.

In heaven God said, "One day I will send my Son to help all people and show them how to live. And I choose Mary to be the mother of Jesus, my Son. So God sent his angel Gabriel to Mary and the angel said:

Hail Mary,

The angel Gabriel visited Mary in Nazareth, in Galilee. The angel said to Mary that God loved her. She was
full of grace,
The angel Gabriel told Mary that God, who was in heaven so far away, had come to be close to her. She was to be the mother of Jesus. The angel said,
the Lord is with you.
After the angel left her, Mary went to visit her cousin Elizabeth. her cousin knew how good God was to Mary. Elizabeth said,

Blessed are you among women

Mary's cousin Elizabeth knew that Mary was going to be the Mother of Jesus Christ. Elizabeth said,

and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

We pray to Mary because she is so close to God, and because she is so close to her Son, Jesus Christ. And so we say,

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners

Like a good mother, Mary always hears us when we call to her. She hears us now, at this very moment; and when we come to the last moment of our life. And so we pray,

Now and at the hour of our death.Amen.
And it has some deeper reflection for those consider themselves adults too :)
God bless!
