In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. Let us pray for the liberty and exaltation of our Holy Mother the Church, for the consecration of Russia and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the conversion of sinners, for the perseverance of our families in the true Catholic Faith, for the poor souls in purgatory, and for our personal intentions.
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 rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and 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.
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.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst 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, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy.
Salve Regina Hail holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, hail 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 vale 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. Let us pray. O God, Whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation, 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.
Sacred Heart of Jesus. Have mercy on us. (3 times) In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
The 15 Promises of Our Lady of the Rosary To all those who shall recite my Rosary devoutly, I promise my special protection and very great graces. Those who shall persevere in the recitation of my Rosary shall receive some signal grace. The Rosary shall be a very powerful armor against hell; it will destroy vice, deliver from sin, and dispel heresy. The Rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies; it will substitute in hearts love of God for love of the world, and will lift them to the desire of heavenly and eternal things. How many souls shall sanctify themselves by this means! Those who trust themselves to me through the Rosary, shall not perish. Those who shall recite my Rosary devoutly, meditating on its mysteries, shall not be overwhelmed by misfortune. The sinner shall be converted; the just shall grow in grace and become worthy of eternal life. Those truly devoted to my Rosary shall not die without the Sacraments of the Church. Those who recite my Rosary shall find during their life and at their death the light of God, the fullness of His graces, and shall share in the merits of the blessed. I shall deliver very promptly from purgatory the souls devoted to my Rosary. The true children of my Rosary shall enjoy great glory in heaven. What you ask through my Rosary, you shall obtain. Those who propagate my Rosary shall be aided by me in all their necessities. I have obtained from my Son that all the members of the Rosary Confraternity shall have for their brethren the saints of heaven during their life and at the hour of death. Those who recite my Rosary faithfully are all my beloved children, the brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ. Devotion to my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.

And his mother said to him: Son, why hast thou done so to us? behold thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. 49And he said to them: How is it that you sought me? did you not know, that I must be about my father's business? 50And they understood not the word that he spoke unto them.

The first sorrowful mystery : The Agony of Our Lord in the Garden Spiritual Fruit : Contrition for our sins 36Then Jesus came with them into a country place which is called Gethsemani; and he said to his disciples: Sit you here, till I go yonder and pray. 37And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to grow sorrowful and to be sad. 38Then he saith to them: My soul is sorrowful even unto death: stay you here, and watch with me. 39And going a little further, he fell upon his face, praying, and saying: My Father, if it be possible, let this chalice pass from me. Nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. 40And he cometh to his disciples, and findeth them asleep, and he saith to Peter: What? Could you not watch one hour with me? (Matthew 26: 36-40) May the grace of this mystery come down into my soul.
The second sorrowful mystery : The Scourging at the Pillar Spiritual Fruit : Mortification of the flesh 37Pilate therefore said to him: Art thou a king then? Jesus answered: Thou sayest that I am a king. For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth my voice. 38 Pilate saith to him: What is truth? And when he said this, he went out again to the Jews, and saith to them: I find no cause in him. 39But you have a custom that I should release one unto you at the pasch: will you, therefore, that I release unto you the king of the Jews? 40Then cried they all again, saying: Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber. (John 18: 37-40) May the grace of this mystery come down into my soul.
The third sorrowful mystery : The Crowning with Thorns Spiritual Fruit : Mortification of our mind and our heart 28And stripping him, they put a scarlet cloak about him. 29And platting a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand.

(Matthew 27: 28-31) May the grace of this mystery come down into my soul.
The fourth sorrowful mystery : The Carrying of the Cross Spiritual Fruit : Patience 17And bearing his own cross, he went forth to that place which is called Calvary, but in Hebrew Golgotha. 18Where they crucified him, and with him two others, one on each side, and Jesus in the midst. 19And Pilate wrote a title also, and he put it upon the cross. And the writing was: Jesus of Nazareth, The King of the Jews. 20This title therefore many of the Jews did read: because the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, in Greek, and in Latin. (John 19: 17-20) May the grace of this mystery come down into my soul.
The fifth sorrowful mystery : The Crucifixion of Our Lord Spiritual Fruit : Spirit of sacrifice 33But after they were come to Jesus, when they saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34But one of the soldiers with a spear opened his side, and immediately there came out blood and water. 35And he that saw it, hath given testimony, and his testimony is true. And he knoweth that he saith true; that you also may believe. 36For these things were done, that the scripture might be fulfilled: You shall not break a bone of him. 37And again another scripture saith: They shall look on him whom they pierced.

The first glorious mystery : The Resurrection Spiritual Fruit : Faith 4And looking, they saw the stone rolled back. For it was very great. 5And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed with a white robe: and they were astonished. 6Who saith to them: Be not affrighted; you seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified: he is risen, he is not here, behold the place where they laid him. 7But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee; there you shall see him, as he told you. 9But he rising early the first day of the week, appeared first to Mary Magdalen, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

The second glorious mystery : The Ascension Spiritual Fruit : A great desire of heaven 8But you shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the uttermost part of the earth. 9And when he had said these things, while they looked on, he was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10And while they were beholding him going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments. 11Who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven? This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven. (Acts 1: 8-11) May the grace of this mystery come down into my soul.
The third glorious mystery : The Descent of the Holy Ghost Spiritual Fruit : Zeal for the salvation of souls 1And when the days of the Pentecost were accomplished, they were all together in one place: 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a mighty wind coming, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3And there appeared to them parted tongues as it were of fire, and it sat upon every one of them: 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak with divers tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak. (Acts 2: 1-4) May the grace of this mystery come down into my soul.
The fourth glorious mystery : The Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven Spiritual Fruit : The grace of a happy death The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin into heaven is the mystery of purity. The Immaculate Conception was prepared for the Annunciation by providing spiritual incorruptibility, and the Annunciation led to the Nativity. The Assumption followed as a gracious consequence because it was not fitting that the body that bore the body of Jesus Christ should ever be violated by any form of corruption. (Catholic Devotions) May the grace of this mystery come down into my soul.
The fifth glorious mystery : The Coronation of Our Lady in Heaven Spiritual Fruit : A greater devotion to Mary Jesus crowns Mary Queen of Heaven. She is enthroned at the right hand of Jesus. Mary is seen crowned with twelve stars. Angels and saints praise her. The faithful of the earth praise her. Mary intercedes for us to her Son. Jesus cannot refuse the prayers of his Blessed Mother. Saint Joseph reigns with Jesus and Mary. The Day of Judgment is approaching. The Church aspires to paradise. (Catholic Devotions) May the grace of this mystery come down into my soul.

Amen. O Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us and send us many holy priests. (3 times)
