FULL OF GRACE

Rosary (3.30pm)

SIGN OF THE CROSS
In the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

APOSTLES CREED (whilst holding the crucifix)
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 to the dead.
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.

ON THE FIRST BEAD:
Leader:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
People:
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.

ON THE NEXT THREE BEADS:
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. 

ON THE FIFTH BEAD:
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.

PRAYERS FOR THE DECADES
(We are praying the Joyful Mysteries: The Annunciation (Luke 1:26-38); The Visitation (Luke 1:39-56); The Birth of Christ (Luke 2:1-9); Presentation of the Lord (Luke 2:22-39); The Finding in the Temple (Luke 2:41-51)


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, 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.

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.

[On the second and fourth decades, the people begin with Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be, with the leader concluding them.]


Hail! Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy;
Hail, 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 vale of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy towards us;
and after this our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement! O loving! O sweet Virgin Mary!

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God,
that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

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.
