The rosary prayer itself is taken from scripture

  • Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee. 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.


The Rosary is a set of prayers based on the mysteries in the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

It is made of of several prayers

  • Make the Sign of the Cross and say the "Apostles' Creed."
  • Say the "Our Father."
  • Say three "Hail Marys."
  • Say the "Glory be to the Father."
  • Announce the First Mystery; then say the "Our Father."
  • Say ten "Hail Marys," while meditating on the Mystery.
  • Say the "Glory be to the Father."
  • Announce the Second Mystery; then say the "Our Father." Hail Marys and Glory Be and continue with Third, Fourth and Fifth Mysteries in the same manner.

After the Rosary: Recite 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!

V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God. R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray. 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 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.
