“Our prayer should include the Mother of God.. .What the Hail Mary says is that all glory should be given to God, using these words: “Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus Christ. Amen!” – Martin Luther, Personal Prayer Book, 1522

Yup, even Zwingli allowed for Mary. And infant baptism too, but that is another story.
