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.


When all mysteries have been prayed, finish with one of the following

  • Hail Holy Queen      (Ordinary Time)
  • Regina Caeli            (Easter season)
  • Alma Redemptoris  (Advent)
