THE ROSARY OF JESUS

In Remembrance of the 33 years of Jesus' Life on earth


Rosary Background

How to Say the Rosary of Jesus

 

The background  of the Rosary of Jesus revitalizes an ancient form of prayer and the interest in the Rosary of Jesus apparently begins with the apparition at Medjugorje in 1983, when the visionary Jelena, received a message from Our Lady to have a prayer group formed of young people using the Rosary of Jesus as the outline. Prayer groups have been formed throughout the world.

Prayers of the Rosary of Jesus

The Apostles' 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 Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, sitteth 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 Ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.

The Lord's Prayer

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.

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.  (top)
