Latin.png Latin text

Suscipe verbum Virgo Maria, quod tibi a Domino per angelum transmissum est:
Ecce concipies Deum pariter et hominem,
ut benedicta dicaris inter omnes mulieres.

Paries quidem filium et virginitatis non patieris detrimentum,
efficieris gravida et eris mater semper intacta,
ut benedicta dicaris inter omnes mulieres.
