Glory be to the Father… Opening prayers of the Rosary


Prayer for Wednesdays before the Glorious Mysteries


O Virgin Immaculate and Queen of the Rosary, in these days of dead faith and triumphant impiety, thou hast been pleased to set up thy throne as Queen and Mother, upon the ancient site of Pompeii, the dwelling place of pagans long since dead. And from the place where once men worshiped false gods and demons, thou, as Mother of Divine grace, dost in these our times scatter everywhere the treasures of heavenly mercies. Ah, from that throne where thou reignest as Queen of mercy, turn, dear Mother upon us also thine eyes of mercy, and have pity on us who have such great need of thy assistance. Show thyself to us, as to so many others, a true Mother of mercy: “Show thyself a Mother”; while with all our hearts we salute thee and call upon thee as our Sovereign and Queen of the Most holy Rosary.


Ending Prayer (after the last decade)


O Virgin and Queen of the Holy Rosary, thou art the Daughter of our heavenly Father, the Mother of God the Son, and the Bride of the Holy Ghost with His sevenfold gifts. Thou canst obtain all things from the ever-blessed Trinity; therefore obtain for us this favor which is so urgent for us, provided that it be no obstacle to our eternal salvation (silent pause); we ask it of thee through thy Immaculate Conception, thy Divine Motherhood, thy joys, thy sorrows and thy triumphs; we ask it of thee through the Heart of thy dear Jesus, and the nine months wherein thou didst carry Him in thy bosom, the hardships of His life, His bitter passion, His death on the Cross, His most Holy Name, the shedding of His Precious Blood; finally, we ask it of thee through thine own most sweet heart and thy glorious name, O Mary, thou who art the Star of the Sea, our mighty mistress, the sea of sorrow, the Gate of Heaven, and the Mother of every grace. In thee we put our trust; from thee we hope for all things. It is thy task to save us. Amen.


V. Make me worthy to praise thee, O sacred Virgin;

R. Give me strength against thine enemies.


V. Pray for us, O Queen of the most Holy Rosary,

R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Litany of Loreto, Closing Prayers of the Rosary, and Hymn to Our Lady


Hymn to the Queen of the Holy Rosary

Queen of the Holy Rosary, O bless us as we pray,

And offer thee our roses in garlands day by day.

While from our Father’s garden, with loving hearts and bold,

We gather to thine honor buds white and red and gold.


O Queen of the Holy Rosary! Each mystery blends with thine,

The sacred life of Jesus in every step Divine.

Thy soul was His fair garden, thy virgin breast His throne,

Thy thoughts His faithful mirror reflecting Him alone.


Sweet Lady of the Rosary, white roses let us bring,

And lay them ’round thy footstool before our Infant King.

For nestling in thy bosom God’s Son was fain to be,

The Child of thy obedience and spotless purity.
