Praying the Rosary~


Familiarize yourself with the prayers of the rosary

Make the Sign of the Cross.

Holding the Crucifix, say the “Apostles’ Creed”

On the first bead, say the “Our Father”

Say three “Hail Mary’s” on each of the next three beads.

Say the “Glory Be”

For each of the five decades, announce the Mystery, then say the “Our Father”

While fingering each of the ten beads of the decade, next say ten Hail Mary’s while meditating on the Mystery. Then say a Glory Be. (After finishing each decade, some say the following prayer requested by the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima: “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of your mercy.”)

After saying the five decades, say the “Hail, Holy Queen” followed by this dialogue and prayer:

 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 while meditating on 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
