The Heavenly Father speaks to us because of His infinite Love for each of us. Through His Word we are able to return to Him if we obey it.
 

The Queen of Prayer: The Rosary

--------+o~~~o+---------

The Most Holy Rosary

The word Rosary means "Crown of Roses". Our Lady has revealed to several people that each time they say a Hail Mary they are giving her a beautiful rose and that each complete Rosary makes her a crown of roses. The rose is the queen of flowers, and so the Rosary is the rose of all devotions and it is therefore the most important one. The Holy Rosary is considered a perfect prayer because within it lies the awesome story of our salvation. With the Rosary in fact we meditate the mysteries of joy, of sorrow and the glory of Jesus and Mary. It's a simple prayer, humble so much like Mary. It's a prayer we can all say together with Her, the Mother of God. With the Hail Mary we invite Her to pray for us. Our Lady always grants our request. She joins Her prayer to ours. Therefore it becomes ever more useful, because what Mary asks She always receives, Jesus can never say no to whatever His Mother asks for. In every apparition, the heavenly Mother has invited us to say the Rosary as a powerful weapon against evil, to bring us to true peace.

Who Can Pray the Rosary

Anyone who knows six easy prayers can pray a Rosary; you will also need to know twenty Mysteries to meditate upon as you pray. You do not have to be a Catholic.

The Order of Prayers

The Rosary begins with the sign of the cross with the words "In the Name of the Father, of the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen." Then follows the Apostles Creed (1), followed by one Our Father (2), three Hail Mary (3) (traditionally offered for an increase in faith, hope, and charity for those praying the Rosary), a Glory Be (4), and, if desired, the Fatima Prayer (4) Next come five mysteries (I-V), each consisting of the announcement of the mystery, one Our Father (2), ten Hail Mary (3), a Glory Be (4), and, if desired, the Fatima Prayer (4). Conclude with the Hail Holy Queen (5). Please say a few extra prayers after the Hail Holy Queen for the Pope.

Rosary Beads

If you do not have Rosary beads, it is perfectly okay to count with your fingers. Counting beads frees your mind to help you meditate.

Prayers for Praying the Rosary

The Apostle's Creed (1)

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, 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 Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Our Father (2)

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.

Hail Mary (3)

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst 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.

Hail Holy Queen (5)

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!

Leader: Pray for us O Holy Mother of God,
All: That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.

(Optional)

Leader: Let us pray.
All: 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 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.

Prayer for the Holy Father (for private devotion)

Leader: Help his friends...
All: ...convert his enemies.

The Coronation (V): Mary is crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth.

Mysteries for Certain Weekdays

Traditionally, many people say the Joyful Mysteries on Monday, the Sorrowful Mysteries on Tuesday, the Glorious Mysteries on Wednesday, and start again with the Joyful Mysteries on Thursday, the Sorrowful Mysteries on Friday. The Glorious Mysteries are then prayed on Saturday and Sunday. Now that the Luminous Mysteries have recently been added, the schedule is:

Monday - Joyful
Tuesday - Sorrowful
Wednesday - Glorious
Thursday - Luminous
Friday - Sorrowful
Saturday - Joyful
Sunday - Glorious

Try to place yourself "into" the scene of the particular mystery as you pray, imagining the sights, smells, sounds, and emotions that Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and other participants experienced during the actual events.

It is also okay to meditate on the meaning of the words of the prayers as you pray them, or even to meditate on the person for whom you are offering the Rosary.

Offering Intentions

Practically everyone who prays the Rosary "offers" the Rosary to God and Our Lady for an intention. Some people offer particular intentions before each decade. You can ask God to grant you a favor, heal a sick person, or convert a sinner. Some people offer the same intention every day -sometimes for years on end- especially when asking the Father for the conversion of a particular person. Intentions are as varied as the people who pray.

Ask for big and small gifts. Be bold! In this sense, the Rosary is an exchange of gifts between friends.

It is widely known that Our Lady answers seemingly impossible intentions to those who are first beginning to pray the Rosary. This is her way of drawing you closer to Her and to Jesus. If you are praying your first Rosary, or returning to the Rosary after years of not talking to Our Lady, ask for something big, spectacular, "impossible." She'll often surprise you.

Meriting a Plenary Indulgence

The Catholic Church, exercising its authority to "bind and loose on heaven and earth," and in perfect accord with God's Mercy, has set the following conditions for the granting of a plenary indulgence for those who pray the Rosary:

  • Be in a state of grace - that is your soul is free from mortal sin.
  • Be free from attachment to - that is, not in the habit of - venial sin.
  • Go to confession several days before or after praying the Rosary.
  • Receive Holy Communion on the day you pray the Rosary.
  • Say a prayer for the Pope.

By fulfilling these simple (but often difficult) conditions, you merit the grace to release one soul from Purgatory. While we are free to ask God to apply this grace to a particular soul, God can do as He pleases, according to His Will and Mercy. You can also ask God to apply this special grace to your own soul. A plenary indulgence will relieve the temporal punishment due to sin (it will not absolve the sin or cause the sin to be forgiven).

Chaplet of Divine Mercy

The Chaplet of Mercy is recited using ordinary Rosary beads of five decades. The Chaplet is preceded by two opening prayers from the Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska and followed by a closing prayer.

Divine Mercy Chaplet

Make the Sign of the Cross (1)

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Opening Prayers (2)

St. Faustina’s Prayer for Sinners (Optional)

O Jesus, eternal Truth, our Life, I call upon You and I beg Your mercy for poor sinners. O sweetest Heart of my Lord, full of pity and unfathomable mercy, I plead with You for poor sinners. O Most Sacred Heart, Fount of Mercy from which gush forth rays of inconceivable graces upon the entire human race, I beg of You light for poor sinners. O Jesus, be mindful of Your own bitter Passion and do not permit the loss of souls redeemed at so dear a price of Your most precious Blood. O Jesus, when I consider the great price of Your Blood, I rejoice at its immensity, for one drop alone would have been enough for the salvation of all sinners. Although sin is an abyss of wickedness and ingratitude, the price paid for us can never be equalled. Therefore, let every soul trust in the Passion of the Lord, and place its hope in His mercy. God will not deny His mercy to anyone. Heaven and earth may change, but God's mercy will never be exhausted. Oh, what immense joy burns in my heart when I contemplate Your incomprehensible goodness, O Jesus! I desire to bring all sinners to Your feet that they may glorify Your mercy throughout endless ages. (Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, 72)

You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.

(Repeat three times:)

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You!

Our Father (3)

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.

Hail Mary (4)

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst 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.

The Apostles’ Creed (5)

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 Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; 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 will come 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 life everlasting. Amen.

The Eternal Father (6)

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

On the 10 Small Beads of Each Decade (7)

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Repeat for the remaining decades

Saying the "Eternal Father" (6) on the great bead and then 10 "For the sake of His sorrowful Passion" (7) on the following small beads.

Conclude with Holy God (8)

(Repeat three times)

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Closing Prayers (8)

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

(Optional)

O Greatly Merciful God, Infinite Goodness, today all mankind calls out from the abyss of its misery to Your mercy — to Your compassion, O God; and it is with its mighty voice of misery that it cries out. Gracious God, do not reject the prayer of this earth's exiles! O Lord, Goodness beyond our understanding, Who are acquainted with our misery through and through, and know that by our own power we cannot ascend to You, we implore You: anticipate us with Your grace and keep on increasing Your mercy in us, that we may faithfully do Your holy will all through our life and at death's hour. Let the omnipotence of Your mercy shield us from the darts of our salvation’s enemies, that we may with confidence, as Your children, await Your [Son’s] final coming — that day known to You alone. And we expect to obtain everything promised us by Jesus in spite of all our wretchedness. For Jesus is our Hope: through His merciful Heart, as through an open gate, we pass through to heaven (Diary, 1570).

The Chaplet of the Precious Blood of Jesus

This devotion draws a person closer to Jesus and His holy wounds.

During those times in our lives when we do not feel God’s love, it is most beneficial to meditate on Jesus’ crucifixion and the many wounds he suffered out of love for us. It freshens in our minds the great pain Jesus endured and the profound depth of His love.

One way to enter into Jesus’ Passion is to meditate on the wounds He received and the blood that poured forth from those wounds. It is an ancient devotion in the Church, one that has roots in the New Testament. For example, in the First Letter of John we read, “If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).

Here is a short guide to a beautiful devotion to Jesus’ Passion called the “Chaplet of the Precious Blood.” It contains powerful prayers that can be prayed using an ordinary rosary.

Make the sign of the cross.

On the first large bead, recite 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 Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
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 will come 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 life everlasting.
Amen.

After that, say the following prayer:

May the Precious Blood that flows out from the Sacred Head of Our Lord Jesus Christ cover us now and forever. Amen.

For each decade of beads, there is a different wound of Jesus to meditate on.

1) The Nailing of the Right Hand of Our Lord Jesus.

Say the following prayer:

By the Precious Wound in Thy Right Hand and through the pain of the nail which pierced Thy Right Hand, may the Precious Blood that pours out from there, convert many souls and save sinners of the whole world. Amen.

Remaining on the same bead, pray an Our Father and Hail Mary.

Then on the small beads pray, “Precious Blood of Jesus Christ. Save us and the whole world.”

At the end of each decade pray 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.

2) The Nailing of the Left Hand of Our Lord Jesus

Say the following prayer:

By the Precious Wound in Thy Left Hand and through the pain of the nail which pierced Thy Left Hand, may the Precious Blood that pours out from there relieve Souls in Purgatory and protect the dying against the attacks of evil spirits. Amen.

Repeat the same sequence as the first mystery.

3) The Nailing of the Right Foot of Our Lord Jesus

Say the following prayer:

By the Precious Wound in Thy Right Foot and through the pain of the nail which pierced Thy Right Foot, may the Precious Blood that pours out from there cover the foundation of the Catholic Church against the plans of the evil spirit and evil men. Amen.

Repeat the same sequence as the first mystery.

4) The Nailing of the Left Foot of Our Lord Jesus

Say the following prayer:

By the Precious Wound in Thy Left Foot, and through the pain of the nail which pierced Thy Left Foot, may the Precious Blood that pours out from there protect us from the plans and the attacks of evil spirits and their minions. Amen.

Repeat the same sequence as the first mystery.

5) The Piercing of the Sacred Side of Our Lord Jesus.

Say the following prayer:

By the Precious Wound in Thy Sacred Side and through the pain of the lance which pierced Thy Sacred Side, may the Precious Blood and Water that pours out from there cure the sick, bring repentance to the dying, and bring us to eternal happiness with God. Amen.

Repeat the same sequence as the first mystery.

At the end of the Chaplet, pray these prayers.

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 vale of tears. Turn then most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us; and after this our exile, show unto us the Blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
Pray for us, Oh holy Mother of God;
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

O Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, we honor, worship and adore Thee. Heal the wounds our souls and wash away the sins of the whole world. O Precious Blood, have mercy. Amen.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
Have mercy on us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Pray for us.
St. Joseph,
Pray for us.
St. Peter and St. Paul,
Pray for us.
St. John at the foot of the Cross,
Pray for us.
St. Mary Magdalene,
Pray for us.
All ye Saints and Angels,
Pray for us.

The Bleeding Holy Face of Jesus

of Cotonou in the State of Benin in West Africa

Twice a picture of the Holy Face bled in Cotonou, Benin, on February 17 and March 15, 1995. In February 1995, an 18 x 24 cm framed picture of the Holy Face began to bleed in Cotonou, West Africa. The doctor, summoned in haste, could not take a sample when he arrived because the blood had already clotted. 13 witnesses attended the event, during which a voice spoke:

"I will come again, and the doctor will be able to complete his examination."

Glass tubes were placed ready to collect blood in case of a repetition of the blood flow on the image. On March 15, 1995, at about 5 p.m., the Holy Face again began to bleed profusely. Blood could be collected. In fact, so much blood flowed from the image that the features of the Holy Face were barely visible. When a glass tube was quarter full, a voice said:

"It is enough. I will fill it up myself."

The doctor who had seen the tube quarter-full noted about 45 min later a tube completely filled without human intervention. The doctor, who had no explanation for these events, was amazed. 12 witnesses witnessed the events. The blood was then analyzed with the result: it was human blood of blood group AB, Rh. positive.

Look at MY bleeding face!

What do I have to say to you?

Do I have anything to say to you any longer?

Do you truly listen to ME anymore?

Do you feel sorry for ME when you see ME bleeding like this? I do it for you.

The Bleeding Holy Face of Jesus

Our Lady begs for help that this Most Holy Face be venerated in all homes through contemplation and prayer. In this way, she can still avert much of the severe judgment.

The Eternal Father speaks:

My children! In the terrible days that will come upon humanity, the Holy Face of My Divine Son will be truly helpful ("a true tear cloth to dry"), for My true children will be hidden behind it. It will be the Holy Face that will be a true offering so that the punishments that I will bring upon humanity will be lessened. In the homes where it is located, there will be light to free oneself from the power of darkness.

In the homes where the Holy Face of my Son is, I will instruct my angels to mark them. - And My children will be saved from what evils will befall this ungrateful humanity. My children, become all true apostles of the Holy Face and spread it everywhere! The more it is spread, the less will be the catastrophe.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus speaks:

Always offer my Most Holy Face to the Heavenly Father, and He will have mercy on you. I ask you all to honor my Divine Face and to give Him a place of honor in your homes, so that the Heavenly Father may shower you with graces and forgive your sins. Little children, make sure that you pray at least a short prayer to the Holy Face of Jesus every day in your homes. Never forget to greet it when you get up - and to ask it for its blessing when you go to rest! In this way you will happily reach the heavenly fatherland.

I assure that all those who have a special love for the Holy Face will always be warned of dangers and disasters. I solemnly promise that all those who spread devotion to my Most Holy Face will be saved from the punishments that come upon humanity. Moreover, they will receive light for the days of terrible confusion approaching the Holy Church. Should they suffer death at the judgment, they will die as martyrs and attain sanctity. Truly, truly, I assure you that those who spread devotion to My Face will attain grace, that no family member will be condemned, and that those who are in purgatory will soon be released from it.

But all must come to Me through the mediation of My most holy Mother.

All the devotees of the Divine Face will receive a great light to understand the mysteries of the last times. In the heavenly fatherland they will be very close to the Savior. All these graces they receive as worshippers of the Holy Face. Do not lose these graces, because it is very easy to lose them.

O most holy face of Jesus, disfigured by wounds and blood, revelation of divine love and mercy! We adore You through the sorrowful Immaculate Heart of Mary and wish to make reparation to You in the name of and for all souls for all insults inflicted upon You. Grant that we may take upon ourselves the trials and sufferings of our lives in patient love, in order to offer them united with Your infinite sacrifice to the Heavenly Father in satisfaction for the salvation of souls.

Let us, O Lord, who today venerate Your sorrowful face, one day behold Your transfigured face in heaven and eternally praise You with Mary, Your Mother, all the angels and saints. Amen.
