    Ave Maria                Hail Mary 
    gratia plena             [with] grace filled
    Dominus tecum            the Lord [is] with you
    Benedicta tu             Blessed [are] you
    Et benedictus            And blessed
    Fructus ventris tui.     [Is] the fruit of the womb of you.

    Mater Dei                Mother of God
    Ora pro nobis            Pray for us 
    Peccatoribus             Sinners
    Nunc et in               Now and in 
    Hora mortis nostrae.     The hour of the death of us.
