Holy Rosary

INTRODUCTORY
PRAYER:


O Queen of the Holy Rosary, You graciously revealed the treasures
of grace, hidden in the Rosary, to the three shepherd childern
of Fatima. Instil in our hearts a sincere and profound love
for this powerful prayer. By meditating on the mysteries of
our redemption recalled in the Rosary, may we be enriched with
its fruits and obtain the conversion of sinners and peace in
the world. If it is in accordance with the will of your Divine
Son, grant us the favours we ask of you in this Rosary. Holy
Mother of God, intercede for us that each of us praying the
Rosary may live in accordance with the will of your Son and
thus obtain the joys of eternal life. Amen.

THE CREED:

I
believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and
earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord,

He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born
of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was
crucified, died and was buried. He descended to the dead,
on the third day He rose again. He ascended into Heaven, and
is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again
to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness
of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life ever-lasting,
Amen.



   Our Father...

Holy Mary, Daughter of the Eternal Father, Strengthen our
Faith.

   Hail Mary...

Holy Mary, Mother of the Beloved Son, increase our hope.

   Hail Mary...

Holy Mary, Radiant temple of the Holy Spirit, deepen our love.

   Hail Mary...

   Glory be...



THE FATIMA PRAYER:

O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of
hell, and lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are
most in need of your mercy.

To you we come, before you we stand, sinful and sorrowful,
O Mother of the Word incarnate, despise not our petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer us. Amen.

Mary, Help of Christians,
