PRAYER TO ARCHANGEL S.t MICHAEL

We always commence our Rosary prayers with a prayer for protection of our Rosary prayer and intentions

Detail: Defeat of Sennacherib. Frans de Francken, t.y.

(2 Kings 32: 20-21; Isaiah 37:36-37). Princely Collection. Used with Permission.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.

May God command/rebuke him, we humbly pray;

and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host –

by the Divine Power of God –

cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,

who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls

Amen

Sancte Michael Archángele,

defénde nos in prœlio;

contra nequítiam et insídias diáboli esto præsídium.

Imperet illi Deus, súpplices deprecámur;

tuque, Princeps militiae cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malignos,

qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo,

divina virtúte in inférnum detrúde.

PRAYER

TO COMMENCE THE ROSARY WITH A HONEST MIND AND HEART

Oh my God, from all my heart I am sorry for all my sins, and I detest them, not only because in sinning, I deserve the penalties that you have justly established, but especially because I have offended Thee, who art the greatest good, and worthy beyond all my love. Therefore I firmly purpose, with the help of Thy grace, from henceforth to sin no more and flee the next occasions of sinning.

Amen

Deus meus, ex toto corde poenitet me omnium meorum peccatorum, eaque detestor, quia peccando, non solum poenas a Te iuste statutas promeritus sum, sed praesertim quia offendi Te, summum bonum, ac dignum qui super omnia diligaris. Ideo firmiter propono, adiuvante gratia Tua, de cetero me non peccaturum peccandique occasiones proximas fugiturum. 

Amen

I confess to Almighty God, to Blessed Mary ever Virgin,

to Blessed Michael the Archangel, to Blessed John the Baptist,

to the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and all the Saints,

and to you, father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, deed:


  through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault,


therefore I beseech Blessed Mary ever Virgin,

Blessed Michael the Archangel, Blessed John the Baptist,

the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you father,

to pray for me to the Lord our God.  

Amen


Confiteor Deo omnipotenti, beatae Mariae semper Virgini, beato Michaeli Archangelo, beato Joanni Baptistae, sanctis Apostolis Petro et Paulo, omnibus Sanctis, et tibi Pater: quia peccavi nimis cogitatione, verbo, et opere:

 

mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

 

Ideo precor beatam Mariam semper Virginem, beatum Michaelem Archangelum,

beatum Joannem Baptistam, sanctos Apostolos Petrum et Paulum,

omnes Sanctos, et te Pater, orare pro me ad Dominum Deum Nostrum

Amen

O blessed Joseph,

Defend, O most watchful guardian of the Holy Family,

the chosen off-spring of Jesus Christ.

Keep from us, O most loving Father,

all blight of error and corruption.

Aid us from on high, most valiant defender,

in this conflict with the powers of darkness.


And even as of old thou didst rescue the Child Jesus

from the peril of His life,

so now defend God's Holy Church

from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity.


Shield us ever under thy patronage, that, following thine example

and strengthened by thy help,

we may live a holy life,

die a happy death,

and attain to everlasting bliss in Heaven.

MEMORARE

 

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 with this confidence,

I fly to 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 thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen

MEMORARE, O piissima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo,

quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia, tua implorantem auxilia,

tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum. Ego tali animatus confidentia,

ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto.

Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere; sed audi propitia et exaudi.

Amen.

Act of Consecrations to the Three Hearts;

to Jesus, Mary and Joseph

Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
By St. Margaret Mary Alacoque


O Sacred Heart of Jesus, to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials, and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving, honoring and glorifying Thee. This is my irrevocable will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love, renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee.

I take Thee, O Sacred Heart, for the sole object of my love, the protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my frailty and inconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be Thou, O Most Merciful Heart, my justification before God Thy Father, and screen me from His anger which I have so justly merited. I fear all from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope all from Thine infinite Goodness. Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee.
I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite Goodness, grant that my name be engraved upon Thy Heart, for in this I place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants.

Amen

present in all the tabernacles of the world,

He descended into hell;

on the third day He rose again

from the dead;

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God

the Father almighty,

from there He shall come to judge

the living and the dead.

passus sub Pontio Pilato,

crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus,

descendit ad infernos,

tertia die resurrexit a mortuis,

ascendit ad coelos,

sedet ad dexteram

Dei Patris omnipotentis,

inde venturus

est judicare vivos et mortuos.

 

Credo

in Spiritum Sanctum,

sanctam ecclesiam catholicam,

sanctorum communionem,

remissionem peccatorum,

Each Mystery or Scripture, is to remembering Christ and his life. 


Our Lady said in her apparition dec. 10, 1925:

"keep me company for 15 minutes while meditating on the mysteries of the rosary"

The 15 minutes is the meditation of the mysteries, not the whole Rosary.

"What does the mystery mean to us and our Mother Church today. 


Announce the 1st Glorious mystery


The Resurrection of Jesus Christ        (Mark 16:1-8)


(We do the Sign of the Cross      Faith,   Hope   and   Love    which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

And when the sabbath had passed, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint him. Very early on the first of the week they came to the sepulcher, the sun having risen.


And they said among themselves:

Who shall roll away for us the stone from the door of the sepulcher?


And looking up they see that the stone had been rolled away; for it was very great. They entered the sepulcher and saw a young man, sitting at the right side, clothed in a white robe; and they were amazed. He says to them:

“Be not amazed.

You seek Jesus the Nazarene who was crucified;

he has risen, he is not here: see the place where they laid him.”


And going out they fled from the sepulcher; for trembling and astonishment had seized them; and they said nothing to any one, for they were afraid.

And when the day of Pentecost had fully come, the disciples were all together at the same time.


And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a rushing, violent blast, and filled the whole house where they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues like fire distributing themselves, and it sat on each one of them; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

and the dead in Christ shall arise first …

to meet the Lord in the air. so shall we always be with the Lord.

And I heard a voice from heaven like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder; and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps.


And they sung a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one was able to learn the song, …


And in their mouth was found no guile;

for they are blameless.


And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”


Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come.

save us from the fires of hell,

and lead all souls to Heaven,

especially those in most need of Your Mercy.

Amen



Our Father (still on the single Pearl, soon moving along the Chain towards the ten Pearls)

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


Pater noster, qui es in caelis:

sanctificetur Nomen Tuum;

adveniat Regnum Tuum;

fiat voluntas Tua,

sicut in caelo, et in terra.            

Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie;

et dimitte nobis debita nostra,

Sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris;

et ne nos inducas in tentationem;

sed libera nos a malo.

Amen

Let’s Pray 10 Hail Mary for the intentions

(on the 10 consecutive Pearls)


O Lord Jesus Christ Who, before ascending into heaven did promise to send the Holy Spirit to finish Your work in the souls of Your Apostles and Disciples, deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me that He may perfect in my soul, the work of Your grace and Your love.

Come, O Divine Spirit, fill my heart with Thy heavenly fruits, Thy charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity, goodness, faith, mildness, and temperance, that I may never weary in the service of God, but by continued faithful submission to Thy inspiration may merit to be united eternally with Thee in the love of the Father and the Son.

Amen

Hail Mary,

full of grace, 

the Lord is with thee,

now and at the hour of our death.

before the Connecting Medallion.

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 while meditating on these mysteries

of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary,

that we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, 

through Christ our Lord.

Amen

Christ Triumphant over Sin and Death. Peter Paul Rubens. Princely Collection. Used with Permission.

The Rosary is a perfect wreath and we have now reached the connecting medallion where we through the Hymn, Salve Regina, unite the intentions and prayers.


Salve Regina,

Mater misericórdiae.

Vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve.

Ad te clamámus, éxsules fílii Evae.

Ad te suspirámus geméntes et flentes in hac lacrimárum valle.

Eia ergo, advocáta nostra, illos tuos misericórdes óculos ad nos convérte.

Et Iesum, benedíctum fructum ventris tui, nobis, post hoc exsílium, osténde.

O clémens,

O pia,

O dulcis Virgo Maria!



V.  Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Génitrix. 
R.  Ut digni efficiámur promissionibus Christi.

Regina caeli - Eastertide


V. Regina caeli, laetare, alleluia. 
R. Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia. 
V. Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia. 
R. Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

V. Gaude et laetare, Virgo Maria, alleluia. 
R. Quia surrexit Dominus vere, alleluia.


Oremus. Deus, qui per resurrectionem Filii tui, Domini nostri Iesu Christi, mundum laetificare dignatus es: praesta, quaesumus; ut per eius Genetricem Virginem Mariam, perpetuae capiamus gaudia vitae. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum.

Amen

The Holy Rosary, the perfect wreath,

is closed through our hymn Salve Regina where the prayers and intentions unite.

The pearls continue leading our way to the Cross of the Holy Rosary

"as the Crucifix both opens and closes the unfolding sequence of prayer".
