玫瑰經經文

宗徒信經

我信全能的天主父,天地萬物的創造者。

我信父的唯一子,我們的主耶穌基督,衪因聖神降孕,由童貞瑪利亞誕生;祂在比拉多執政時蒙難,被釘在十字架上,死而安葬,祂下降陰府,第三日從死者中復活;祂升了天,坐在全能天主父的右邊,祂要從天降來,審判生者死者。

我信聖神。我信聖而公教會,諸聖的相通。罪過的赦免。肉身的復活。永恆的生命。阿們。


天主經

我們的天父,

願祢的名受顯揚;

願祢的國來臨;

願祢的旨意奉行在人間,

如同在天上。

求祢今天賞給我們日用的食糧;

求祢寬恕我們的罪過,

如同我們寬恕別人一樣;

不要讓我們陷於誘惑;

但救我們免於兇惡。


聖母經

萬福瑪利亞,妳充滿聖寵,

主與妳同在,

妳在婦女中受讚頌,

妳的親子耶穌同受讚頌。

天主聖母瑪利亞,

求妳現在和我們臨終時,

為我們罪人祈求天主。

阿們。


聖三光榮頌

願光榮歸於父、及子、及聖神;

起初如何,

今日亦然,

直到永遠。

阿們。


After finishing each decade, some say the following prayer requested by the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima: 

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell; lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of your mercy.


The Hail Holy Queen (The Salve Regina)

Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy,
our life, our sweetness, and our hope.
To you we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
to you we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this, our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.


Optional closing prayers:V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. 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 life. Grant, we beseech Thee, that by meditating on 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.

Pour forth we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His passion and cross be brought to the glory of His resurrection, through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Prayer to St. Joseph after the Rosary:

This prayer to Saint Joseph—spouse of the Virgin Mary, foster father of Jesus, and patron saint of the universal Church—was composed by Pope Leo XIII in his 1889 encyclical, Quamquam Pluries. . . . He asked that it be added to the end of the Rosary, especially during the month of October, which is dedicated to the Rosary. The prayer is enriched with a partial indulgence (Handbook of Indulgences, conc. 19), and may be said after the customary Salve Regina and concluding prayer. It may also be used to conclude other Marian devotions. (From www.usccb.org)

To you, O blessed Joseph,
do we come in our tribulation,
and having implored the help of your most holy Spouse,
we confidently invoke your patronage also.

Through that charity which bound you
to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God
and through the paternal love
with which you embraced the Child Jesus,
we humbly beg you graciously to regard the inheritance
which Jesus Christ has purchased by his Blood,
and with your power and strength to aid us in our necessities.

O most watchful guardian of the Holy Family,
defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ;
O most loving father, ward off from us
every contagion of error and corrupting influence;
O our most mighty protector, be kind to us
and from heaven assist us in our struggle
with the power of darkness.

As once you rescued the Child Jesus from deadly peril,
so now protect God’s Holy Church
from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity;
shield, too, each one of us by your constant protection,
so that, supported by your example and your aid,
we may be able to live piously, to die in holiness,
and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven.

Amen.
