THE ROSARY OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
"A Most Excellent Manner of Praying"
The NEW Luminous Mysteries (Mysteries of Light). The new addition to the Rosary.
Hail, queen of the most holy rosary, my mother Mary, I humbly kneel at your feet to offer you a crown of roses to remind me of your Son's joys, sorrows, and glories, each recalling a holy mystery, each ten bound together with my petition. Mother of all who call on you, from your goodness give me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly seek.
Hail, queen of the most holy rosary, my mother Mary, I humbly kneel at your feet to offer you a crown of roses to remind me of your Son's joys, sorrows, and glories, each recalling a holy mystery, each ten bound together with my thanksgiving. Mother of all who call on you, from your goodness you obtained for me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly asked of you.
Rosary Novena Prayer
Holy Virgin Mary, Mother of God and Our Mother, accept this Holy Rosary which I offer you to show my love for you and my firm confidence in your powerful intercession. I offer it as an act of faith in the mysteries of the Incarnation and the Redemption, as an act of Thanksgiving to God for all His love for me and all mankind, as an act of atonement for the sins of the world, especially my own, and as an act of petition to God through your intercession for all the needs of God's people on earth, but especially for this earnest request. (Mention your request here)
I beg you, dear Mother of God, present my petition to Jesus, your Son. I know that you want me to seek God's will in my request. If what I ask for should not be God's will, pray that I receive that which will be of greater benefit for my soul. I put all my confidence in Thee. Amen.
How To Say The Rosary
The Apostles' Creed is said on the Crucifix: the Our Father is said on each of the Large Beads: the Hail Mary on each of the Small Beads: the Glory Be to the Father after the three Hail Mary's at the beginning of the Rosary, and after each group of Small Beads.
