How we pray The Holy Rosary
We start with making the Sign of the Cross: In the name of The Father, and of The Son, and of The Holy Spirit. Amen.
Then on the crucifix pray:
Come Holy Spirit, fill my heart with grace, and
help me now, as I place myself in the presence of
God, and renounce all distractions that may come
to me as I pray. Amen.
Thou Oh’ Lord would open my lips, and my
tongue shall announce thy praise.
Incline unto my aid oh God, oh Lord make haste to help us.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of
heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only
Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy
Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under
Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell, the third day He arose
again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and
is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints,
the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.
Then on the first bead from the crucifix we pray the “Our Father”
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as
it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our
trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not
into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Then on each of the next three beads we pray the “Hail Mary”
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Then on the single bead before the centre piece we pray the “Glory be” and the “Fatima Prayer”(O' My Jesus)
Glory Be to the Father, and to
the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and
ever shall be, World without end. Amen.
O My Jesus, forgive us our
sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven,
especially those in most need of Thy mercy.
While still on this bead we announce the First Mystery for that day,
example: Friday it would be the first Sorrowful Mystery of the Agony in
Then pray the “Our Father”
Then moving on past the Centre Piece we pray a “Hail Mary” on each of the ten beads.
Then on the single bead we pray the “Glory Be” and also the “Fatima Prayer”
Then we announce the second mystery and pray the “Our Father” on that same bead.
Then we move on to pray the “Hail Mary” on each of the next ten beads.
Then on the single bead we pray the “Glory Be” and also the “Fatima Prayer.”
Then we announce the third mystery and pray the “Our Father” on that same bead.
This format continues to the last bead before we get back to the centre piece, at which time we pray only the “Glory Be” and also the “Fatima Prayer.”
Then on the centre piece we pray:
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of
Mercy, Hail our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor
banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and
weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, O most gracious advocate, thine
eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the
blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin
Mary. Pray for us, O Most Holy Mother of God, that we may be made
worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.
Let us pray:
O God, who’s only begotten Son,
by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards
of eternal salvation, grant, we beseech Thee, that meditating upon
these mysteries, of the Most Holy Rosary, of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we
may imitate what they contain, and obtain what they promise, through the
same Christ Our Lord, Amen.
May the Divine assistance remain always with us,
And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in the hour of conflict, be our safeguard against the
wickedness and snares of the devil. May God restrain him we humbly
pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God,
trust Satan down to hell, and with him all the evil spirits, who wander
through this world, for the ruin of souls. Amen.
Eternal God, in whom mercy is
endless, and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon
us, and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might
not despair, nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit
ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
Then we finish with "The sign of the Cross"
