Prayer for Mondays & Thursdays before the Joyful Mysteries

O Queen of the Holy Rosary, dear Lady of Fatima, the very thought that so many have been blessed only because they had recourse to thee with confidence, inspires us with fresh hope and courage to call upon thee to come to our assistance. Thou didst once promise Saint Dominic that whosoever desired the grace of God should obtain it by means of thy Rosary: now we, with Rosary in hand, call upon thee, our Mother, to keep thy maternal promises. Nay, thou thyself in these our times dost work never-ceasing wonders to call thy children to honor thee in thy shrines of Pompeii, Alttting, and Fatima. Be thou pleased, therefore, to wipe away our tears and assuage our sorrows! With our heart upon our lips and with lively faith, we call upon thee and invoke thee: our Mother, dearest Mother, Mother fairest, Mother gentlest, help us! Mother and Queen of the holy Rosary, delay not to stretch forth thy mighty hand to save us, for delay, as thou seest, will bring us down to ruin.

Prayer for Tuesdays before the Sorrowful Mysteries

O blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain that binds us to God, bond of love that makes us one with the Angels, tower of salvation amid the attacks of Hell, safe harbor in the universal shipwreck, we shall never forget thee. Thou shalt be our consolation in the hour of death’s agony, thine shall be the last kiss of our ebbing life. The last whisper of our dying lips shall be thy sweet name, O Queen of the Holy Rosary, our dearest Mother, only refuge of sinners, sovereign comforter of the sorrowful. Be thou everywhere blessed, now and forever, on earth and in Heaven. Amen.

Prayer for Fridays before the Sorrowful Mysteries

Humbly bending at the foot of thy throne, O great and glorious Lady, our souls venerate thee in the midst of the groans and anguish that oppress us beyond measure. In spite of the trials and tribulations wherewith we are encompassed, we raise our eyes with confidence to thee who hast deigned to choose for thy earthly habitation the fields of poor and forsaken country folk. And there, facing the city and amphitheater devoted to worldly pleasures, where now reign silence and ruin, thou, as the Queen of Victories, hast lifted up thy mighty voice to summon from every quarter of the Catholic world, thy devoted children to build thee a shrine in thine honor. Ah, be thou moved to pity for these souls of ours, which lie trampled in the mire. Have mercy on us, dear Lady, have mercy on us, for we are filled beyond measure with misery and humiliation. Thou who art the Help of Christians, draw us from the tribulations wherein we are miserably entangled. Thou who art our life, triumph over the death which threatens our souls in these dangers to which we find ourselves exposed; give us peace again, tranquility, love and salvation.

Wednesdays & Saturdays before the Glorious Mysteries

O Virgin Immaculate and Queen of the Rosary, in these days of dead faith and triumphant impiety, thou hast been pleased to set up thy throne as Queen and Mother, upon the ancient site of Pompeii, the dwelling place of pagans long since dead. And from the place where once men worshiped false gods and demons, thou, as Mother of Divine grace, dost in these our times scatter everywhere the treasures of heavenly mercies. Ah, from that throne where thou reignest as Queen of mercy, turn, dear Mother upon us also thine eyes of mercy, and have pity on us who have such great need of thy assistance. Show thyself to us, as to so many others, a true Mother of mercy: “Show thyself a Mother”; while with all our hearts we salute thee and call upon thee as our Sovereign and Queen of the Most holy Rosary.

Prayer for Sundays before the Glorious Mysteries

O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, to whom else can we have recourse, if not to thee, who art the solace of the wretched, the comfort of the desolate, the consolation of the afflicted? We confess it to thee, our souls are exceeding sorrowful, weighed down as they are by countless sins; we deserve the fire of Hell, we are unworthy to receive thy favors. But art not thou the hope of the hopeless, the great Mediatrix between man and God, our powerful advocate at the throne of the most High, and the refuge of sinners? Ah, do thou only say the word in our behalf to thy Divine Son, and He will hear and answer thee. Ask Him, then, O Mother, for this favor, of which we stand so much in need…(silent pause) Thou alone canst obtain it for us; thou art our only hope, our consolation, our sweetness, our whole life. Such is our hope. Amen. (Memorare)

Ending Prayer (after the last decade)

O Virgin and Queen of the Holy Rosary, thou art the Daughter of our heavenly Father, the Mother of God the Son, and the Bride of the Holy Ghost with His sevenfold gifts. Thou canst obtain all things from the ever-blessed Trinity; therefore obtain for us this favor which is so urgent for us, provided that it be no obstacle to our eternal salvation (silent pause); we ask it of thee through thy Immaculate Conception, thy Divine Motherhood, thy joys, thy sorrows and thy triumphs; we ask it of thee through the Heart of thy dear Jesus, and the nine months wherein thou didst carry Him in thy bosom, the hardships of His life, His bitter passion, His death on the Cross, His most Holy Name, the shedding of His Precious Blood; finally, we ask it of thee through thine own most sweet heart and thy glorious name, O Mary, thou who art the Star of the Sea, our mighty mistress, the sea of sorrow, the Gate of Heaven, and the Mother of every grace. In thee we put our trust; from thee we hope for all things. It is thy task to save us. Amen.

V. Make me worthy to praise thee, O sacred Virgin;
R. Give me strength against thine enemies.

V. Pray for us, O Queen of the most Holy Rosary,
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

In honor of St. Dominic; Glory be to the Father…
In honor of St. Catherine of Sienna; Glory be…
In honor of St. Vincent Ferrer; Glory be…

Hymn to the Queen of the Holy Rosary

Queen of the Holy Rosary, O bless us as we pray,
And offer thee our roses in garlands day by day.
While from our Father’s garden, with loving hearts and bold,
We gather to thine honor buds white and red and gold.

O Queen of the Holy Rosary! Each mystery blends with thine,
The sacred life of Jesus in every step Divine.
Thy soul was His fair garden, thy virgin breast His throne,
Thy thoughts His faithful mirror reflecting Him alone.

Sweet Lady of the Rosary, white roses let us bring,
And lay them ’round thy footstool before our Infant King.
For nestling in thy bosom God’s Son was fain to be,
The Child of thy obedience and spotless purity.
