O Jesus living in Mary, come and live in Your servants, in the spirit of Your holiness, in the fullness of Your might, in the perfection of Your ways, in the truth of
Your virtues, in the communion of Your mysteries. Subdue every hostile power, the devil, the world and the flesh, in the strength of Your Spirit, for the glory of Your Father, Amen.

The Apostles' Creed:
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 arose 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.
The Our Father:
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.
The Hail Mary:
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: 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.

"O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell,
and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Your
(Our Lady at Fatima, 13th July 1917)
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.

Prayers after the Rosary The 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 toward us; and after this our exile show
unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus; O clement, O loving, O
sweet Virgin Mary.
"O God whose only begotten Son has
purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, Grant that we beseech
Thee while meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of
the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may both imitate what they contain and
obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord Amen."
"My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I
love You. I beg pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not
adore, do not hope, and do not love You."
(The Angel to three children of Fatima, spring 1916)
For the intentions of the Holy Father,

Mary", and one "Glory Be".
