Prayers for the Rosary

Apostle’s Creed

I 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 Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilot,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
He descended into hell;
on 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 there He will come 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 the life everlasting.
Amen.
 


Fatima Prayer

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of hell,
and lead all souls to heaven,
especially those in most need of Thy mercy.
Amen.
 


Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be.
Amen.


Hail Holy Queen

Hail Holy Queen, mother of God,
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 the vale 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.
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,
that we may be made worthy,
of the promises of Christ.
Amen.


Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with you!
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
 
Holy Mary, mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.
 


O God, Whose

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 by 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.
 


Our Father

Our Father who are in heaven,
hallowed by Thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
 
Give us each 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.
