Praying the Dominican Rosary

PRAYING THE DOMINICAN ROSARY

A. THE BEGINNING
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  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.

Tracing a cross over the lips with the right thumb:
. O Lord, open my lips.
. Any my mouth shall declare Thy praise.

Making the Sign o the Cross:
. O God, come to my assistance.
. O Lord, make haste to help me. 

Bowing deeply for the versicle:
. Glory 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.  Alleluia. (From Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday the ‘Alleluia’ is replaced with ‘Praise to Thee, O Lord, King of eternal Glory!)

B. THE MYSTERIES (FOR EACH ROSARY, YOU PRAY A GROUP OF FIVE MYSTERIES, ONE MYSTERY PER DECADE)

1. One ‘Our Father’
. Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come, they 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.

2. Ten ‘Hail Marys’
. 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.

3. One ‘Glory’
. Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
. As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

D. THE ENDING
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 thy blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!

. Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us.
. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

. Let us pray:
. 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 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.

. May the divine assistance remain always with us.
. Amen.

. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
. Amen.

. May the blessing † of Almighty God, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, descend upon us and remain with us always.
. Amen.
