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.


May she rest in peace and perpetual light shine upon her.


Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and may light perpetual shine upon her.


Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord,
And let perpetual light shine upon her.
May her soul rest in peace. Amen.

Now to go and watch “The Sound of Music”…once more. :smiley:


That film is such a delight and has stood the test of time and I dare anyone to not feel uplifted during and at the end of it.
Even though Plummer calls it “the sound of mucus”!

It wasn’t exact to the real life story, so I wonder how the children like this Maria felt about it and if they loved it, too.



Her three half siblings by the Baron’s second wife are still alive but they of course did not feature in the movie.


May she rest in peace.
