PRAYERS OF THE HOLY ROSARY

The Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ, His only Son OurLord; 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 rose 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 the dead. I believe in the Holy Sprit, 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, 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

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

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.

The Fatima Prayer

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.

Hail Holy Queen

Hail, Holy Queen, mother of mercy, 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 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.

(Verse) Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God. 

(Response) That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

The Rosary Prayer  

(Verse) Let us pray.

(Response) O God, whose only begotten Son, by His Life, Death, and Resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation. Grant we beseech Thee, that while meditating on these Mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

The Memorare  

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto thee, O Virgin of Virgins, our Mother. To thee do we come, before thee do we kneel, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy clemency, hear and answer them. Amen.  
 

Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.  


ADDITIONAL PRAYERS
 

Prayer to Defeat the Work of Satan

O Divine Eternal Father, in union with your Divine Son and the Holy Spirit, and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg you to destroy the power of your greatest enemy- the evil spirits.  Cast them into the deepest recesses of hell and chain them there forever!  Take possession of your Kingdom which You have created and which is rightfully yours.  Heavenly Father, give us the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  I repeat this prayer out of pure love for You with every beat of my heart and with every breath I take.

Magnificat

My Soul Magnifies The Lord, And My Spirit Rejoices In God My Savior; Because He Has Regarded The Lowliness Of His Handmaid; For, Behold Henceforth, All Generations Shall Call Me Blessed; Because He Who Is Mighty Has Done Great Things For Me, And Holy Is His Name; And His Mercy Is From Generation To Generation On These Who Fear Him. He Has Shown Might With His Arm, He Has Scattered The Proud In The Conceit Of Their Heart. He Has Put Down The Mighty From Their Thrones, And Has Exalted The Lowly. He Has Filled The Hungry With Good Things, And The Rich He Has Sent Away Empty. He Has Given Help To Israel, His Servant, Mindful Of His Mercy-- Even As He Spoke To Our Fathers--To Abraham And To His Posterity Forever.

Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Virgin of Fatima, Mother of Mercy, Queen of Heaven and earth, Refuge of Sinners, we who belong to the Marian Movement of Priests consecrate ourselves in a very special way to your Immaculate Heart.

By this act of consecration we intend to live, with you and through you, all the obligations assumed by our baptismal consecration.  We further pledge to bring about in ourselves that interior conversion so urgently demanded by the Gospel, a conversion that will free us of every attachment to ourselves and to easy compromises with the world so that, like you, we may be available only to do always the will of the Father.

And as we resolve to entrust to you, O Mother most sweet and merciful, our life and vocation as Christians, that you may dispose of it according to the designs of salvation in this hour of decision that weighs upon the world, we pledge to live it according to your desires, especially as it pertains to a renewed spirit of prayer and penance, the fervent participation in the celebration of the Eucharist and in the works of the apostolate, the daily recitation of the Holy Rosary, and an austere manner of life in keeping with the Gospel, that shall be to all a good example of the observance of the law of God and the practice of Christian virtues, especially that of purity.

We further promise you to be united with the Holy Father, with the hierarchy and with our priests, in order thus to set up a barrier to the growing confrontation directed against the Magisterium, that threatens the very foundation of the Church.

Under your protection, we want moreover to be apostles of this sorely needed unity of prayer and love for the Pope, on whom we invoke your special protection.

And lastly, insofar as is possible, we promise to lead those souls with whom we come in contact to a renewed devotion to you.

Mindful that atheism has caused shipwreck in the faith to a great number of the faithful, that desecration has entered into the Holy temple of God, and that evil and sin are spreading more and more throughout the world, we make so bold as to lift our eyes trustingly to you, O Mother of Jesus and our merciful and powerful Mother, and we invoke again today and await from you the salvation of all your children, O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.  Amen. – Cenacles of the Marian Movement of Priests

Radiating Christ

Dear Jesus, help us to spread your fragrance everywhere we go. Flood our souls with your spirit and life. Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly that our lives may only be a radiance of yours. Shine through us, and be so in us, that every soul we come in contact with may feel your presence in our soul. Let them look up and see no longer us but only Jesus! Stay with us, and then we shall begin to shine as you shine; so to shine as to be a light to others; the light O Jesus, will be all from you, none of it will be ours; it will be you, shining on others through us. Let us thus praise you in the way you love best by shining on those around us. Let us preach you without preaching, not by words but by our example, by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what we do. The evident fullness of the love our hearts bear to you. Amen.
