"Our Father" in Swahili

Have you heard the "Our Father" in an African language.?.There is one song created by this man Christopher Tin from the album Calling all Dawn and performed by Soweto Gospel Choir.The song was used as the main menu music in the video game Civilization 4 of Sid Meir's creation , hailed as the greatest PC strategey game..Although the video is all about war did not quite match the lyric's intention which is actually the "Our Father".
It is in Swahili language.... i found the definition too ...
Swahili (called Kiswahili in the language itself) is the first language of the Swahili people (Waswahili), who inhabit several large stretches of the Indian Ocean coastline from southern... Somalia to northern Mozambique, including the Comoros Islands.I included the lyrics below.

The Rosary

This was taken from the Rosary Confraternity's site after i enrolled online...

In recent times the Mother of God has appeared in various parts of the world and asked for the recitation of the Rosary, the prayer she gave to the world centuries ago. It is her favorite prayer for it is essentially a meditation on the life of her Divine Son. The Rosary is a combination of vocal prayer (the Our Fathers & Hail Marys) and of mental prayer, namely, reflection on important events in the life of Christ and His Mother.

St. Bernard's Prayer

"...never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help and sought thy intercession was left unaided..."
- Memorare

Prayer of St. Bernard

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my mother, to you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me.


Pope Piux IX granted an indulgence of 300 days to those who devoutly recite this prayer.


How many Mary is named in the Bible?

Mary (mother of Jesus)[Luke 1:30-31] also called the Blessed Virgin Mary
Mary Magdalene,[Luke 8:2] devoted disciple of Jesus
Mary of Bethany,[John 11:1] disciple of Jesus, sister of Martha and Lazarus; Roman Catholic tradition considers her the same person as Mary Magdalene; the Orthodox Church and Protestants consider her a separate individual in the New Testament
