I thought I was being all clever, linking each word at the beginning of each post in the Looking Closer at the Hail Mary series, but as a service to you, dear reader, here is a round-up of what we’ve covered so far. When we’re finished, I’ll do a wrap-up post and link to everything again, too.

Click on the highlighted words to go to the associated post. As you can see, we’re just past the halfway mark. New posts go live on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 AM Eastern.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
