Luciano Pavarotti – Ave Maria lyrics

Ave Maria, gratia plena.
Maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Ave, ave dominus,
Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
Et benedictus
Et benedictus fructus ventris,
Ventris tui, Jesus.
Ave Maria.

(Some versions add the following)

Ave Maria, Mater Dei,
Ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
Ora, ora pro nobis;
Ora, ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
Nunc et in hora mortis,
In hora mortis nostrae.
In hora, mortis, mortis nostrae,
In hora mortis nostrae.
Ave Maria

    I was raised catholic, but have'nt practiced in 30 years. However, I still recall the meaning as I understood it from the teachings at that time.
    Hail mary (a greeting).
    Full of grace (unquestionable).
    The lord is with thee (most believe that he is with all of us).
    Blessed art thou amongst women (she gave birth to the physical incarnation of god, I think that she is blessed).
    And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, jesus (duh).
    Holy mary (holy is defined as associated with the divine. Does anyone doubt that she has an association with the divine?)
    Mother of god (she gave birth to the christ. The catholic faith, and almost every protestant faith that I can think of, believes in the trinity. Therefore, mother of god).
    Pray for us sinners (now this is the meat of it. Everything above is just a bunch of affirmations about beliefs. This segment is simply asking for the most influential female figure to ever to walk the planet to pray for us. Every time I go on facebook, I am bombarded with prayer requests, so, I know that everyone can't find this request offensive).
    Now and at the hour of our death, amen (praying for someone is a universal thing. At the hour of our death is specifically catholic. That's another debate.)
    Oh, as for the amen, google it.

    We do not worship mary. She is the ever-virgin mother conceived without sin, and her special status warrants a special kind of respect and admiration ("hyperdulia"), but not adoration, which is reserved solely for god.
    Her sinlessness and special place as queen of heaven also make her prayers to god particularly powerful. This is why we pray to her. We recruit her help and ask her to pray for us to her son, because we know her prayers are more perfect than ours. Ave maria, gratia plena.

    The question remains. Why would anyone pray to mary when they were commanded explicitly to have no other gods, and then christ additionally gave an example of how to pray.
    Mary was a woman, and worshipping a woman would violate the ten commandments. So I suppose the meaning of the song is twofold. The first part being scripture put to music, and the second (praying directly to mary to intercede), a form of idol worship, in violation of the ten commandments.

    Jesus prayed, father fogive them for they know not what they do. Jesus is god. Mother mary is the mother of god. The 1st part of the rosary is from st. Lukes gospel. The 2nd part is simply a request for prayer. Now simply think of the many wonderful bible stories of jesus? And there you have it. This is one way to draw your attention to jesus. Praise christ now!

    This was my grandfather's favorite song. When we found out one of our twins was about to be born with a major heart defect, we searched for a name with a true meaning and found avariella, small strong woman. We shortened it to ava and added marie as a middle name to reinforce my grandfather's presence over her. She lived up to her name for 4 1/2 months. Still, she shows herself through this amazing song.
