It is short, so it can be easily memorized and quickly spoken, and is the backbone of the devotion of the Rosary, which is easily the world’s most powerful devotion. With countless miracles and conversions to its credit, the Hail Mary is a powerful composition.
1917 Our Lady of Fatima is said to ask that the Fatima Prayer be added to the Rosary . Her visionaries state that she also asks for the Rosary to be said to stop the war. 1974 Pope Paul VI issues the Apostolic Letter Marialis Cultus which devotes 14 sections to the use of the rosary within the Roman Catholic Church.
Each decade is preceded by one Lord’s Prayer (“Our Father”) and traditionally followed by one Glory Be. Many Catholics also choose to recite the “O my Jesus” prayer after the Glory Be, which is the most well-known of the seven Fatima Prayers .
The Fatima message emphasizes central truths and devotions of the Catholic faith: The Blessed Trinity, the Eucharist, penance, the Rosary and sacrifices for the conversion of sinners.
