"Say the Rosary every day...
Pray, pray a lot and offer sacrifices for sinners...
I'm Our Lady of the Rosary.
Only I will be able to help you.
...In the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph."
Our Lady at Fatima
The word Rosary means "Crown of Roses". Our Lady has revealed to several
people that each time they say a Hail Mary they are giving her a beautiful rose
and that each complete Rosary makes her a crown of roses. The rose is the queen
of flowers, and so the Rosary is the rose of all devotions and it is therefore the
most important one. The Holy Rosary is considered a perfect prayer because
within it lies the awesome story of our salvation. With the Rosary in fact we meditate
the mysteries of joy, of sorrow and the glory of Jesus and Mary. It's a simple prayer,
humble so much like Mary. It's a prayer we can all say together with Her, the Mother of
God. With the Hail Mary we invite Her to pray for us. Our Lady always grants our request.
She joins Her prayer to ours. Therefore it becomes ever more useful, because what Mary
asks She always receives, Jesus can never say no to whatever His Mother asks for.
In every apparition, the heavenly Mother has invited us to say the Rosary as a powerful
weapon against evil, to bring us to true peace. With your prayer made together with
Your heavenly Mother, you can obtain the great gift of bringing about a change of
hearts and conversion. Each day, through prayer you can drive away from yourselves
and from your homeland many dangers and many evils.
It can seem a repetitive prayer but instead it is like two sweethearts who many times
say one another the words: "I love you"... A devout exercise to perform praying the Rosary
to obtain any request is the "54-day Rosary Novena" in honor of Our Lady of Pompeii.

Grignion de Montfort.
The Holy Father John Paul II with the Apostolic Letter ROSARIUM VIRGINIS MARIAE of
10/16/2002 has added 5 new mysteries of the Rosary: The Mysteries of the Light.
The whole Rosary is composed of twenty decades. Each decade is recited in honor of
a mystery in Our Lord's Life and that of his Blessed Mother.
It is customary to recite five decades at a time while meditating on one set of mysteries.
The decades may be separated, if the entire chaplet is completed on the same day.
Each Mystery may be meditate "bead by bead" for every Hail Mary of the decade.
How to pray the Rosary
1 While holding the crucifix make the Sign of the Cross. and then
recite the Apostles Creed.
2 Recite the Our Father on the first large bead.
3 Recite a Hail Mary for an increase of faith, hope and charity
on each of the three small beads.
4 Recite the Glory Be to the Father on the next large bead.
5 Recite the Fatima Prayer "O my Jesus" on the large bead.
6 Recall the first Rosary Mystery and recite the Our Father on the large bead.
7 On each of the adjacent ten small beads (also refered to as a decade)
recite a Hail Mary while reflecting on the mystery.
8 On the next large bead, recite the Glory Be to the Father, the Fatima prayer.
9 Each succeeding decade is prayed in a similar manner by recalling
the appropriate mystery, reciting the Our Father, ten Hail Marys,
the Glory Be to the Father, and the Fatima prayer while reflecting on the mystery.
10 When the fifth mystery is completed, the Rosary is Customarily
concluded with the Hail Holy Queen, and the Sign of the Cross.
Sign of the Cross
Make the Sign of the Cross:
In the Name of the Father
of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
The Apostle's Creed (Other Version)
I BELIEVE in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth. I
BELIEVE in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord. He was conceived
by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under
Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the
dead. On the third day he arose again. He ascended into Heaven, and is
seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again 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.
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.
HAIL MARY, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among
women, and 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.
GLORY BE to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was
in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
O My Jesus
O MY JESUS, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell and lead all
souls to Heaven, especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy.
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 towards 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.
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
