Ave Maria, mater Dei,
regina caeli,
domina mundi,
imperatrix inferni,
miserere mei
et totius populi Christiani;
et ne permitas nos
mortaliter peccare;
sed tuam sanctissimam voluntatem
adimplere. Amen.

Ave Maria, madre di Dio,
Regina del cielo,
padrona del mondo
e dell'inferno Signora,
abbi pietà di me
e di tutto il popolo cristiano;
e non permettere che noi
cadiamo nel mortale peccato;
ma permettici di adempiere
alla Tua santa volontà. Amen.

Hail Mary, mother of God,
queen of heaven,
mistress of the world,
empress of hell:
have mercy on me
and on all Christian people;
and do not allow us
to commit mortal sins;
but help us to fulfil
your most holy will. Amen.
