Prayers for the Rosary

"The Lord's Prayer"

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 tress pass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.


"Hail Mary"
    Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among 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.

The miraculous medal used on many of my rosaries is the medal of the Immaculate Conception, commonly know as the Miraculous medal and is a cherished  Catholic devotion

The Blessed Mother Mary manifested the medal to Sister (now Saint) Catherine Laboure in 1830 and asked her to have the medal struck. Since then many millions of the medal have been used by Catholics around the world. Countless miracles have been attributed to the medal

Never under estimate the Power of the Rosary

The first Hail Mary was brought to earth by Angel Gabriel to Mary. Paul VI called the Rosary "a compendium of the Gospel." Pio called the Rosary, "his weapon." At Fatima, Mary identified herself as, "I am the Lady of the Rosary", and continued "I have come to warn the faithful to amend  their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend our Lord anymore, for he is already grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the rosary. Let them continue saying it everyday"
