We ask that everyone pray the Rosary of our Blessed Mother Daily

 
The Rosary of Our Blessed Virgin Mary
1st make the sign of the Cross and say
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, 
and of the Holy Spirit...

and the Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father, the Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord. Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell; on the third day he arose again from the dead. He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of  the Father. From hence He shall come and judge the living and the dead and his Kingdom
 will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, 
the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting. Amen.
2nd say 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.
3rd say three Hail Mary's

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among
women, and Blessed is the fruit of thy whom, Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

(The first three Hail Mary's are often regarded for Faith, Hope, and Charity)

4th say the Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, as it was in the
beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

5th announce the First Mystery (listed below). Then say the Our Father.
6th say 10 Hail Mary's while meditating on the First Mystery
7th say the Glory Be, followed by the Fatima Prayer

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


8th announce the next Mystery and then say the Our Father. 
Repeat 6, 7 and 8  and continue announcing the Third, Fourth and Fifth Mysteries in the same manner.
9th say the Hail Holy Queen

Hail Holy Queen
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy; our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn, then, most gracious Advocate, your eyes of mercy towards us; and after this exile, show us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus; O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God. 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 You, that by meditating upon these mysteries in 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.

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, 

and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
Lord make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love, Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith.  Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light.
And where there is sadness, joy. Oh Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
 
 
Come O Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of thy love.  Send forth thy Spirit and they shall be created and thou shall renew the face of the earth.  Let us pray. Oh God, who did instruct the hearts of thy faithful people by sending them  the light of thy Holy Spirit, grant us in that same Spirit to discern what is right,  that we may enjoy Your wisdom and comfort forever.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
