Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

Dios te salve Maria

Language: Spanish

 Dios te salve Maria, llena eres de gracia; 
 el Señor es contigo, bendita tu eres
 entre todas las mujeres 
 y bendito es el fruto de tu vientre Jesus.

 Santa Maria
 Madre de Dios,
 ruega por nosotros pecadores, ahora
 y en la hora de nuestra muerte. AMEN.
