Prayer for Protection

We always commence our Rosary prayers with the Archangel St. Michael prayer

for protection of our Rosary prayer and intentions.

Signum Crucis


+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen


+ In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti, 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 Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen

Sancte Michael Archángele,

defénde nos in prœlio;

contra nequítiam et insídias diáboli esto præsídium.

Imperet illi Deus, súpplices deprecámur;

tuque, Princeps militiae cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malignos,

qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo,

divina virtúte in inférnum detrúde.

MEMORARE - PRAYER TO MARY, MOTHER OF GOD


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

that never was it known that anyone

who fled to thy protection,

implored thy help, or sought thine intercession

was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence,

I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother;

to thee do 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


MEMORARE, O piissima Virgo Maria,

non esse auditum a saeculo,

quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia,

tua implorantem auxilia,

tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum.

Ego tali animatus confidentia,

ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio,

coram te gemens peccator assisto.

Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere;

sed audi propitia et exaudi.

Amen

A PRAYER FOR FORGIVENESS

(COMMUNION OF THE FAITHFUL)

Recommended daily prayer by Fulton J. Sheen


I confess to Almighty God, to Blessed Mary ever Virgin,
to Blessed Michael the Archangel, to Blessed John the Baptist,
to the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and all the Saints,
and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed:


Mea Culpa       Mea Culpa       Mea Maxima Culpa  


through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault.
Therefore I beseech Blessed Mary ever Virgin, Blessed Michael the Archangel,
Blessed John the Baptist, the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints,
and you Father, to pray for me to the Lord our God.

OFFERING PRAYER before the Rosary:

 

 

Eternal Father, I offer you this Rosary,

by Mary's Immaculate Heart

in union with her Son's, Jesus Christ, precious blood,

as thanksgiving for all your good deeds,

according to the intentions of Jesus' Sacred Heart

for all grace and blessing that will

make us close this beloved Heart

in life, in death, in time and eternity;

for the sick; for the dying;

for the conversion of sinners and for the souls in Purgatory;

for those who have asked for our prayers

and we are obliged to ask for and the family's intentions,

to You, God, may all lead to your greater honour

and glory and a glorious death for us all.

Amen

"And when the sabbath had passed,

Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint him.

Very early on the first of the week they came to the sepulcher, the sun having risen.

And they said among themselves: Who shall roll away for us the stone from the door of the sepulcher?

And looking up they see that the stone had been rolled away; for it was very great.

They entered the sepulcher and saw a young man, sitting at the right side, clothed in a white robe;

and they were amazed.

He says to them: “Be not amazed. You seek Jesus the Nazarene who was crucified; he has risen,

he is not here: see the place where they laid him.”


And going out they fled from the sepulcher; for trembling and astonishment had seized them;

and they said nothing to any one, for they were afraid."

that you sorrow not as the rest also who have no hope.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, so also those that have fallen asleep, will God through Jesus bring with him.

For this we say to you in the word of the Lord, that we, the living, who remain over to the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those that have fallen asleep; "the Lord himself, with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God, shall descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ shall arise first … to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we always be with the Lord."

And a great sign appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; And I heard a voice from heaven like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder; and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps. And they sung a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one was able to learn the song, … And in their mouth was found no guile; for they are blameless.


And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”

In the Name of Jesus Christ, our God and Lord, strengthened by the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Blessed Michael the Archangel, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul and all the Saints, we confidently undertake to repulse the attacks and deceits of the devil.

 

O God, our refuge and our strength, look down with mercy upon the people who cry to Thee; and by the intercession of the glorious and immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Saint Joseph her spouse, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, in Thy mercy and goodness hear our prayers for the conversion of sinners, and for the liberty and exaltation of the Holy Mother the Church.
