For Ms Moon

I would like to share my version of the Hail Mary prayer...  I love the rhythm of the Catholic prayers I learned and find comfort in that...the only problem is, I don't believe the words.  So I made up my own.  I am going to do this in a sort of trilogy fashion, in keeping with religious tradition... ironically, there are only 3 prayers that I like!

Hail Mary
Our Father
Act of Contrition

So without any further adieu, I will present the original prayer as I was taught, then my version... which is paganised to my liking.

Original: Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace.
Our Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, 

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the time of our death.

My version:Hail Creation

Hail mother, full of grace,
The great mystery is with thee.
Blessed art we who create,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, life.

Holy Earth, mother to all,
May we nurture and sustain each other,
Now and forever.
