I guess it's just I don't see any real point to any of these things. It doesn't get you into heaven.It's just a bunch of unnecessary ritual, which I just don't do rituals.
Nothing personal though.

It is a standard and agreed form of petition.

...and its beautiful in choral format. Its not even called "Hail Mary" its called The Angelus. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7BbncHyw9E Just listen to the beautiful diction of the singer...never heard latin sound like that before...and READ THE TRANSLATION...oh and recognise also that the word "Hail" is not just a show of status, but a form of Greeting....at the time this literny was composed, it was akin to a formal "hello" in latin....most of the literny is nothing more then the Magnificat...a statement directly out of the bible!
