"She kept all these things, pondering them in her heart"

Luke 2:19

 
The memories of Jesus impressed upon Mary's heart were always with her, leading her to reflect on the various moments of her life at her Son's side.  In a way those memories were to be the "rosary" which she recited uninterruptedly throughout her earthly life.
At the same time our heart can embrace in the decades of the Rosary all the events that make up the lives of individuals, nations, the Church, and all mankind.  Our personal concerns and those of our neighbour, especially those who are closest to us, who are dearest to us. Thus the simple prayer of the Rosary marks the rhythm of human life.

Pope John Paul II in his Apostolic Letter "Rosarium Virginis Mariae"

Opening Prayers

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

The Apostles 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 into hell.  
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 everlasting.  Amen.

The Lord's Prayer

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.

 
Hail Mary 
(3 times - for an increase of Faith, Hope and Love)

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.

Glory Be

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