THE HOLY ROSARY

How to Pray the Rosary

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

Recite the Apostles' Creed

Recite 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.

Recite the Hail Mary three times
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
Gloria al Padre al Figlio e allo Spirito Santo, come era nel principio e
ora e sempre, nei secoli dei secoli. Amen.

Invocazione
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.

After the enunciation of each Mystery and possibly a short meditation, recite the Our Father and 10 Hail Marys, followed by the Glory Be.
After each decade recite the Fatima Rosary Invocation
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 Your Mercy.


At the end of the five mysteries:
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.


Conclude with an Our Father - Hail Mary - Glory Be for the intentions of the Pope, for the gift of indulgence.

Finally, recite the Marian Litanies..
