For your morning prayers this week sing the refrain of “Hail Mary, Gentle Woman”. Here are the lyrics in case you don’t remember:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you

Blessed are you among women and blest is the fruit of your womb, Jesus

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death. Amen

Gentle Woman, Quiet Light, Morning Star, so strong and bright

Gentle Mother, Peaceful Dove, teach us wisdom, teach us love.
