Alma Redemptoris Mater

IMG 2030



Loving Mother of the Redeemer,

Gate of heaven, star of the sea,

Assist your people who have fallen,

as we strive to rise again.

To the wonderment of nature,

Your bore your Creator,

Yet remained a virgin as before,

You who received Gabriel's joyful greeting,

Have pity on us poor sinners.

The Magnificat



My soul glorifies the Lord,

My spirit rejoices in God my Saviour.

He looks on his servant in her lowliness;

Henceforth all generations will call me blessed.

The Almighty works marvels for me.

Holy his name!

His mercy is from age to age, on those who fear him.

He puts forth his arm in strength

And scatters the proud hearted.

He casts the mighty from their thrones and raises the lowly.

He fills the starving with good things,

Sends the rich away empty,

He protects Israel, his servant, remembering his mercy,

the mercy promised to our fathers, to Abraham and his sons for ever.

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


The Rosary


The Rosary begins with the Sign of the Cross, the Apostles Creed,  one "Our Father",  three "Hail Marys" and a "Glory be to the Father"

Each decade of the Rosary consists on one "Our Father", ten "Hail Marys" and a "Glory be to the Father." Below is a list of the mysteries and suggested reading to  meditate on them.

At the end of each decade one of the following prayers can be recited:

O God, by meditating on this mystery, may we both imitate what it contains and obtain what it promises. through Christ Our Lord.


O my Jesus forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of thy mercy.

The Memorare

our lady of the rosary1


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. 

Inspired by this confidence I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. 

O Mother  of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in they mercy hear and answer me.
