Click here to join! Why should we have such a prayer to Mary? Take a look at Luke 1: The following are various renderings from various translations of the Bible: The Lord is with you. The Lord is with you! Blessed favored of God are you before all other women!
Each translator or group of translators translates the original text into English based on his or her preferences and the needs of the audience.
As with any translation, translating different words can have slightly different connotations. It is simply that when we speak to Mary, as the angel Gabriel did, we greet her by name.
We see in that same verse that Gabriel calls Mary highly favored by God. This is a perfect passive participle. Passive means that something is done to the person.
So Mary is not giving grace to someone else. Instead, she is given grace. The perfect tense denotes past action. In Greek, there are several past tenses. The perfect tense denotes past action with continuing effects in the present. So what Gabriel is saying to Mary is that she was given grace in the past and the grace she was given continues with her to the present time.
This is where Catholics find biblical evidence for the Immaculate Conception. Mary is uniquely graced from the very beginning of her life and maintains that grace throughout her entire life.
We also see in Luke 1: It is becoming clear that the Hail Mary does not contradict the Gospel message. Instead, it is a profoundly biblical prayer. But why is Mary holy or favored? Mary is considered of such high favor with God and Elizabeth recognizes that she is special because of Jesus.
She is blessed because the fruit of her womb is blessed.
Mary was chosen to bear Jesus by God, so God singled her out from many, many other women on the planet. Elizabeth recognized that she was bearing the son of God and so recognized that she was special.
In fact, the Church teaches that Mary was immaculately conceived because of her mission to bear Jesus in her womb. Why is Mary mentioned so much? Also, the fact that Scripture refers to her in such a special way is good enough reason to talk about her.
Even so, Mary is not the core component of faith. The core of Catholicism is Jesus, not Mary. However, we cannot simply neglect Mary.Thank You Santaclausians!
