So we can love, praise, and say the Hail Mary prayer with all our hearts. Mary will receive and hear all our prayers and deposit them in the Lord God the Father.
From a biblical passage, the example of what happens when we praise Our Lady.
“In those days, Mary arose and went in haste to the mountains, to a city of Judah. She entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. Now only Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child trembled in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. And she exclaimed aloud: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And Mary said: My soul glorifies the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour …”.
When Elizabeth spoke aloud, she praised Mary, her cousin, with one of the phrases that make up Marian’s prayer. Mary welcomes this praise and immediately turns to the Lord and glorifies Him. The recognition that we give to Mary never remains in herself; it rises to God the Father Himself.
Among the saints and archangels who lead us to the Father our God, undoubtedly Saint Mary possesses power and a very privileged place. If through her, Jesus can come into this world, as though her we also draw near to the Lord. To pray a Hail Mary is to praise God himself. In doing so, we will come closer and closer to Jesus, who loved his mother deeply. So in a profound union, they will guide us on the best paths towards our definitive home, heaven.

A fact about the history of the Hail Mary prayer
Also called Hail Mary or Angelic Greeting, Hail Queen is one of the most powerful prayers used in the Christian faith. The famous prayer involves the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ. It is filled with grace that raises her above all other women. It also describes her role in the birth of Christ as she asks her to pray for us at all times.
In its present form, prayers to the Hail Mary are used by many Christian denominations. However, it is more often associated with Roman Catholicism. It is with good reason that the veneration of St. Mary is an essential part of Catholic doctrine.
The image of the Virgin Mary is paradoxical, while she is the handmaid of the Lord; she is the Virgin Mary. At the same time, she is the daughter, the Mother of the Son of God. She is a member of the Church and is the principal Lady of the Church. Mary’s position is unique in salvation history. The Lord gave Mary’s privileges because He chose her.
