HOW TO PRAY WITH THE ROSARY?

Start from the cross (1)

Direction: anticlockwise

 

Repeat the following prayers silently in your mind:

 

Cross 1: Blessing

 

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

 

Simultaneously bless yourself with the sign of the cross.

Bead 2:  Confession of sins

 

Confess your sins silently in your mind. Ask for forgiveness and your sins will be forgiven to you.

 

Bead 3: Jesus’ prayer


Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

 

Bead 4: Lord’s prayer

 

Our Father in heaven,

 hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

 Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours

now and for ever.

Amen.

 

Bead series 1-4: Meditative prayers

 

(Meditate over the meaning of the following prayer. What could it mean to you today?)

 

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, Make Your face to shine upon me.

 

IC 1-3: Intercessory prayers

 

The three special beads in the circle are dedicated for intercessory prayers, i.e. you pray for someone who needs special care and blessing from God. With intercessory prayers we lift our eyes towards other people and cultivate our compassion towards the whole creation.

 

Return, bead 4: Singing Sanctus

 

Holy, holy, holy Lord Sabaoth!

 Heaven and earth are full of your glory.

 Hosanna in the highest!

 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

 Hosanna in the highest!

 

Return, bead 3:

 

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.


Return, bead 2: Singing Agnus Dei

 

Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world;

have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world;

have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world;

 grant us peace.

 

Cross 1: Blessing

 

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

 

            Simultaneously bless yourself with the sign of the cross.
