The Traditional Catholic Rosary - The Joyful Mysteries

Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.  He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.  Amen.

The Our Father

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.  Amen.

The Hail Holy Queen

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 valley 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!
V. *Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

V. Let us pray: O GOD, Who's only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, hath 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.  

R. Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil;  may God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world, seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.



* V. stands for versicle.  This is the Rosary leader.
R. stands for response.  This is either everyone else, or yourself if alone.
