In response to Hail Mary, written by Laura W on July 03, 1998 at 12:58:46
] ] Thanks, Kate that was great. Do Catholics still say their "Hail Mary": "Blessed art Thou among women"? To me, it would sound strange "Blessed are You among women".
] I am pretty sure that I learned it as a six-year-old as "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus," but it is almost always recited still as "Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus." I guess old habits die hard.
The Lord's prayer is another "our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name..."
I know in at least one denomination in Australia they now use "our father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come...."
