Hail Mary

Here is a page with versions of the Ave Maria in several different languages. I wish there were recordings of people saying them to go with it.

One of the versions is labeled "Bernadetta Soubirous." I think what they mean by this is that the prayer is in Gascon, an Occitan language; St. Bernadette reported that the Blessed Virgin spoke to her in Gascon, not in French.
