Salutation to the Glory of Mary By St. John Eudes
This salutation was found in a book belonging to St. Margaret Mary after her death, and was promoted faithfully by Fr. Paul of Mall, O.S.B., Belgian Priest [1824-1896]
Hail Mary! Daughter of God the Father, Hail Mary! Mother of God the Son, Hail Mary! Spouse of God the Holy Ghost, Hail Mary! Temple of the Most Blessed Trinity, Hail Mary!

Virgin of virgins, Hail Mary! Queen of Martyrs, whose soul a sword transfixed, Hail Mary! Lady most Blessed! unto whom all power in Heaven and earth is given, Hail Mary! my Queen and my Mother! my Life, my Sweetness, and my Hope, Hail Mary! Mother most Amiable, Hail Mary! Mother most Admirable, Hail Mary! Mother of Divine Love, Hail Mary! IMMACULATE; Conceived without sin! Hail Mary! Full of Grace! the Lord is with thee! Blessed art thou among women! And blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, JESUS!
