“With this Rosary I bind all of my children to the Immaculate Heart of Mary”.
SPECIAL PRAYER INTENTIONS FOR OUR COUNTRY
We offer this Rosary for the conversion and peace in our country; that all may live according to the teachings of our Catholic Church, so that families may recover the values of the Catholic faith and for the sanctification and needs of our beloved priests. Amén.
As you now prepare to say The Sorrowful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary, first make an act of praise and reparation (as given by Our Lord*):
May the most sacred, most adorable, most incomprehensible and ineffable name of God be forever praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified in Heaven, on Earth and under the earth, by all creatures of God and by the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Amen.
Picture in your mind the Holy Face of Jesus… Our Lord said*, "By offering My Face to My Eternal Father, nothing will be refused and the conversion of many sinners will be obtained":
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Adorable Face of Thy Beloved Son for the honor and glory to Thy Name, for the conversion of sinners and the salvation of the dying, especially in this City of (your city's name) and all the cities in this world. Amen.
PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT:
Come now, Oh! Holy Spirit and fill the hearts of Your faithful, enkindle in them the fire of Your love. Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray: Oh! God who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that we, by the gift of the same Holy Spirit, may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in His Holy Consolation through Christ Our Lord. Amén.
You now say the Creed, the Lord's Prayer, 3 Hail Mary’s and the Glory Be, followed by the Meditations.
