Prayers of the Rosary


1. Sign of the Cross:

In the name of the Father (Hand to forehead)

and to the Son (hand on sternum)

and to the Holy (hand to left shoulder)

Spirit (hand to the right shoulder)


2. The 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 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 there He shall 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 life everlasting.  



3. Our Father

Our Father, Who is in heaven, Holy is Your Name;
Your kingdom come, Your will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,

and forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those who sin against us;
and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.



4. Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, Our 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.



5. 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.



6. Hail Holy Mary

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope!

To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.

To you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears!

Turn, then, O most gracious Advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us,

and lead us home at last and show us the blessed fruit of you 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.


O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection,

has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech You,

that meditating on 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.
