Before Hail Mary

Mary was taken up to heaven

Hers was a unique relationship with God

She was the spouse of the holy spirit

the mother of the the Son of God

the obedient servent of the Father

She proclaimed the greatness of The Lord

She accepted God's Plan for her

Do what ever He says

she was the gate through which God worked his plan of salvation

Jesus will take us up if we persist to the end
