The Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
The Apostle's 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 Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He will come in glory 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 life everlasting. Amen.
1. Announce the Mystery (ex: Annunciation, Birth of Christ, Resurrection, etc.)

3. Take a brief moment of silence to meditate on the Scripture passage and its meaning.
4. Pray one Our Father (see below), and 10 Hail Mary's (see below) while still contemplating the Mystery.
5. Then pray a Glory Be to exalt the Lord
6. Pray the Fatima prayer (see below).
7. Repeat for each Mystery.
The Glory Be
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.
The Fatima Prayer
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of Hell. Lead all souls into Heaven especially those in most need of Thy mercy. Amen.
We conclude the Rosary by praying for the intentions of the Pope and the Universal Church. For his intentions and protection we pray one Our Father and three Hail Mary's. Finally, we pray the Hail Holy Queen and the Prayer of St. Michael.
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.
Hail, Holy Queen
Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, 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 toward us and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
Saint Michael the Archangel defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and the 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 evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
The Sign of the Cross
