St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard 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 of the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Glory to God in the Highest!

How To Pray the Rosary

How to say the Rosary.

Make the Sign of the Cross.

Offer up the Rosary for your intentions.

1) Begin the rosary by using the crucifix and saying the Apostles’ Creed. Meditate on the truths of our faith.

2) On the first large bead say the Our Father.

3) On the next 3 beads say the Hail Mary.

4) On the next bead, say the Glory Be to the Father

Begin to recite and meditate on the mysteries of the day. 

Each mystery of the Rosary has 5 decades.  

Each decade consists of the following prayers.

On the first large bead, pray the Our Father.

On each of the next 10 beads recite one Hail Mary.

On the next large bead, recite the Glory Be. 

After the Glory Be, recite the Fatima Prayer. 

Oh, my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell.  Lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy.  

Then, using the same large bead that you used for the Glory Be, begin the next decade of the Rosary.  

After completing the prayers of the 5 decades of the Rosary, end your rosary using the 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! Amen.
Pray for us Oh, Holy Mother of God,
That we May be Made Worthy of the Promises of Christ.
