I unite with all the Angels and Saints in Heaven, with all the just on earth, and with all the faithful here present. I unite with Thee, O my Jesus, in order to praise worthily Thy holy Mother, and to praise Thee in her and through her. I renounce all the distractions that I may have during this Rosary, which I wish to say with modesty, attention, and devotion, just as if it were to be the last of my life.
We offer Thee, O most Holy Trinity, this Creed in honour of all the mysteries of our Faith; this Our Father, and these three Hail Marys in honour of the unity of Thy Essence and the Trinity of Thy Persons. We ask of Thee a lively faith, a firm hope, and an ardent charity. Amen.
At this time, mention your particular intentions for this Rosary (thanksgiving, reparation, petition) “..and that we may always retain our most precious Catholic Faith, practice it fervently, and die for it if necessary, we humbly pray…”
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 Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He rose 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 Ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
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, 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.
Holy Mother Mary, please grant us an increase in the virtue of Faith.
The Act of Faith
O my God, I firmly believe that Thou art One God in Three Divine Persons — the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. I believe that Thy Divine Son became man and died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because Thou hast revealed them, Who canst neither deceive nor be deceived.
Hail Mary… Holy Mother Mary, please grant us an increase in the virtue of Hope.
The Act of Hope
O my God, relying on Thy almighty power, and infinite mercy and promises, I hope to obtain the pardon of my sins, the help of Thy grace, and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer.
Hail Mary… Holy Mother Mary, please grant us an increase in the virtue of true Charity, a deeper love of God; a greater love, respect, and consideration for one another.
The Act of Charity
O my God, I love Thee above all things with my whole heart and soul, because Thou art all good and worthy of all my love. I love my neighbour as myself for the love of Thee; I forgive all who have injured me, and I ask pardon of all whom I have injured.
Glory be to the Father
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be forever, unto ages of ages. Amen.
O God, Whose Only-begotten Son, by His Life, Death, and Resurrection, hast purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech Thee, that meditating upon 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 Thursdays before the Luminous Mysteries
O Queen of the Holy Rosary, dear Lady of Fatima, the very thought that so many have been blessed only because they had recourse to thee with confidence, inspires us with fresh hope and courage to call upon thee to come to our assistance. Thou didst once promise Saint Dominic that whosoever desired the grace of God should obtain it by means of thy Rosary: now we, with Rosary in hand, call upon thee, our Mother, to keep thy maternal promises. Nay, thou thyself in these our times dost work never-ceasing wonders to call thy children to honour thee in thy shrines of Pompeii, Alttting, and Fatima. Be thou pleased, therefore, to wipe away our tears and assuage our sorrows! With our heart upon our lips and with lively faith, we call upon thee and invoke thee: our Mother, dearest Mother, Mother fairest, Mother gentlest, help us! Mother and Queen of the holy Rosary, delay not to stretch forth thy mighty hand to save us, for delay, as thou seest, will bring us down to ruin.

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.
In honor of St. Dominic; Glory be to the Father…
In honor of St. Catherine of Sienna; Glory be…
In honor of St. Vincent Ferrer; Glory be…

October Prayer to Our Lady of Fatima
** Our Lady of Fatima **Dear Queen of the Holy Rosary, we commend to Thy Immaculate Heart during this novena in honour of Thy apparitions at Fatima: all of those intentions which have been placed on Thy altar and which have been commended to our prayers; that Thou and Thy Divine Son wouldst bless and protect our Community: our Bishop, Priests, and Clerics, Oblate Brothers and Sisters, Seminarians, Third Order lay families and their children, our Fatima Crusaders and benefactors — against the attacks of all our enemies, visible and invisible; preserve us from all division, dissension and disunity; and make us all to grow in humility, fervour and love of God and one another; that Thou wouldst grant us many pious, humble and obedient vocations to our Religious Community; that Thou wouldst shower forth the graces of Thy Immaculate Heart upon our Seminary, our Convent, our schools, our Centre and all our worthy undertakings; that Thou wouldst grant the perseverance, sanctification, and growth of our Oblate Community and all of our Fatima Cells, and convert many souls through the missions of our Apostolate.
Prayer to Our Lady of Fatima
Dearest Mother, Queen of the Holy Rosary, who came to Fatima to reveal to all mankind the Divine plan for true Christian peace, of prayer, penance, and consecration, grant an abundance of grace, strength, and guidance to the members of Thy Fatima Crusade, here present and throughout the world. Inspire us to great zeal, oh great Mediatrix of all graces, that we may be effective instruments in spreading devotion to Thy Rosary; that we may be faithful in wearing Thy scapular; that we may inspire our brothers in Christ to a life of sacrifice, penance, and modesty, and finally, that we may help to bring about that wonderful day when all men, through consecration to Thy Immaculate Heart, shall be one in Christ. Amen.
Prayer to the Queen of Angels
August Queen of Heaven, sovereign Mistress of the Angels, who didst receive from the beginning the mission and power to crush the Serpent’s head, we beseech Thee to send Thy holy Angels, that under Thy command and by Thy power they may pursue the evil spirits, encounter them on every side, resist their bold attacks, and drive them hence into the abyss of woe. Most holy Mother, send Thy Angels to defend us and to drive the cruel enemy from us. All ye holy Angels and Archangels, help defend us. O good and tender Mother! Thou shalt ever be our love and our hope. Holy Angels and Archangels, keep and defend us. Amen.
