Reflections From The Holy Land: The Importance of the "Hail Mary" Prayer

May 11, 2018
In this video, Vivian Cabrera gives us a personal reflection on the importance of the Hail Mary prayer, a prayer that she explains, “Has such a strong meaning, and goes far deeper than you can imagine.” Filmed at the Basilica of the Annunciation, this reflection explores the deeper meanings of the Hail Mary prayer; a prayer we all know well, one that has been passed on for generations. She also reminds us that we are more similar to Mary than we perceive, and that there will come a point in our lives where we will encounter the Lord, and be given the choice of saying yes or no; just as she did.
