PRAYERS OF THE ROSARY
THE SIGN OF THE CROSS -
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
APOSTLES' CREED -
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. 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.
OUR FATHER -
Our Father in heaven; holy be your Name your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today, our daily bread. And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Do not bring us to the test but deliver us from evil. Amen.
HAIL MARY -
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you; Blessed are you among women and blessed is your Son, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
GLORY BE TO THE FATHER -
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
0 MY JESUS, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls into heaven especially those who are in most need of your mercy. Amen.
HAIL, HOLY QUEEN
HAIL, HOLY QUEEN, Mother of Mercy. Hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope! To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, 0 most gracious Advocate your eyes of mercy towards us and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus. 0 clement, 0 loving, 0 sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, 0 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 you, that meditating on these Mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may both imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and we ask you Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God, thrust down to hell Satan and all other evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
Remember, 0 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 by this confidence, I fly to you, 0 Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. 0 mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petition, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
