THE PRAYERS & MYSTERIES OF THE HOLY ROSARY
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 Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and
buried. He descended into hell; on the third day He rose
again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, where he sits
at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He
shall come to judge the living and the dead. * I believe in
the Holy Ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of
Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the
body, and life everlasting. Amen.
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.
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.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy
Ghost. * As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall
be, world without end. Amen.
(Recited at the end of each decade.)
my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of
Hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who most
need Thy mercy.
HAIL HOLY QUEEN
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, most
gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us. And after
this our exile, show unto us the blessed Fruit of thy womb,
Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray.
O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death and
resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal
life; 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.
PRAYER TO ST JOSEPH
recited after the Rosary.)
To Thee, O Blessed Joseph, we have recourse in our
tribulations and while imploring the aid of Thy Most Holy
Spouse, we confidently invoke Thy patronage also. By that
love which united Thee to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of
God, and by the fatherly affection with which Thou didst
embrace the Infant Jesus, we humbly beseech Thee graciously
to regard the inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased by
His Blood; and to help us in our necessities by Thy powerful
intercession. Protect, O most provident guardian of
the Holy Family, the chosen children of Jesus Christ; ward
off from us, O most loving Father all taint of error and
corruption; graciously assist us from Heaven, O most
powerful protector in our struggle with the powers of
darkness; and as Thou didst once rescue the Child Jesus from
imminent peril to His life, so now defend the Holy Church of
God from the snares of her enemies and from all adversity.
Shield each one of us with Thine unceasing patronage, that
imitating Thine example and supported by Thine aid, we may
be enabled to live a good life, die a holy death, and secure
everlasting happiness in Heaven. Amen.
