The Scriptural Rosary
V. The Angel of the LORD declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived of the Holy Ghost. Hail Mary, etc
V. Behold the handmaid of the LORD.
R. Be it done unto me according to Thy word. Hail Mary, etc
V. And the Word was made Flesh.
R. And dwelt among us. Hail Mary, etc
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray.
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O LORD, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an Angel, may by His passionate cross, be brought to the glory of His resurrection, through the same Christ our LORD. Amen.
[Said during Eastertide, instead of the Angelus.]
Queen of heaven, rejoice. Alleluia
For He whom thou didst deserve to bear, Alleluia.
Hath risen as He said, Alleluia.
Pray for us to God, Alleluia.
V. Rejoice and be glad O Virgin Mary! Alleluia.
R. Because our LORD is truly risen. Alleluia.
Let us pray.
O God, who by the resurrection of Thy Son, our LORD JESUS Christ, hast vouchsafed to make glad the whole world, grant, we beseech Thee, that, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may attain the joys of eternal life. Through the same Christ our LORD. Amen.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary! that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother! To thee I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate! despise not my petitions, but, in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
The most excellent way to honour and petition the Mother of God is the Most Holy Rosary.
