THE OFFERING PRAYER and INTENTIONS OF THE ROSARY



Prayer of the nine-month novena to our Lady of Guadalupe

by Cardinal Leo Burke

March 12 - Dec 12


O Virgin Mother of God, we fly to your protection and beg your intercession against the darkness and sin which ever more envelop the world and menace the Church. Your Son,
Our Lord Jesus Christ, gave you to us as our mother as He died on the Cross for our salvation.

So too, in 1531, when darkness and sin beset us, He sent you, as Our Lady of Guadalupe, on Tepeyac to lead us to Him Who alone is our light and our salvation.

Through your apparitions on Tepeyac and your abiding presence with us on the miraculous mantle of your messenger, Saint Juan Diego, millions of souls converted to faith in your Divine Son. Through this novena and our consecration to you, we humbly implore your intercession for our daily conversion of life to Him and the conversion of millions more who do not yet believe in Him. In our homes and in our nation, lead us to Him Who alone wins the victory over sin and darkness in us and in the world.

Unite our hearts to your Immaculate Heart so that they may find their true and lasting home in the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Ever guide us along the pilgrimage of life to our eternal home with Him. So may our hearts, one with yours, always trust in God's promise of salvation, in His never-failing mercy toward all who turn to Him with a humble and contrite heart. Through this novena and our consecration to you, O Virgin of Guadalupe, lead all souls in America and throughout the world to your Divine Son in Whose name we pray.

Amen.




Let us pray:


Eternal Father,

I offer you this Rosary,

through Mary's Immaculate Heart in union with her Son, Jesus Christ's precious blood, as thanksgiving for all your almighty acts,

according to Jesus' Sacred Heart intentions;

for all grace and blessing that will make us close to 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.





Let us pray:


We pray for reparation of the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.


We pray for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Queen of the Holy Rosary, who vanquishes all heresy as we pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!


We pray for the intercession of St. Joseph, Patron Saint of Universal Church and Terror of Demons to protect Our Mother Church.


We pray for protection of our cardinals, bishops and priests.


We pray for priestly vocations and vocations to Holy Orders,and for the preservation without restrictions of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum.


We pray for Pope N.

NOW THE GLORIOUS MYSTERIES COMMENCE


On the Crucifix of Rosary:


One begins by holding the Crucifix of the Holy Rosary, kiss it, do the sign of the Cross and pray:

Sign of the Cross


† 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.


Apostles' Creed(still at the Crucifix of the Rosary).

The Church is a mystery in as much as in her visible reality there is present and active a divine spiritual reality which can only be seen with the eyes of faith.

 

 

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ,

His only Son, our Lord,


Let us kneel


who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,


Let us arise


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,

and is seated at the right hand of God

the Father almighty,

from there He shall come 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.


Our father    (First Pearl after the Cross)

The Word of God communicates the mystery of salvation. Through the Lord’s Prayer, we are therefore aware of our being sons of the Father in the Son.



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 Mary (The three Cluster Pearls, pearl 2-4)

The Divine Virtues Fides, Spes et Caritas (Faith, Hope and Love). Mary becomes the mother of Jesus, she gave herself entirely to serve the mystery of redemption, by God's grace.



Hail Mary, full of grace, 

the Lord is with thee,

blessed art thou among women

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus


- who increases our Faith


Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners,

now and at the hour of our death.




Hail Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with thee,

blessed art thou among women

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus


- who increases our Hope


Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners,

now and at the hour of our death.





Hail Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with thee,

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners,

Doxology  (the single Pearl right before the Connecting Medallion)

The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is the central mystery of the Christian faith and of Christian life, and it is the source of all the other mysteries.



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.



Fatima prayer  (Card. Burke prays it right here as it is after the mysteries of Our father, Hail Mary, and the Doxology).

The 3rd apparition of our Lady of Fatima, 13 July 1917: "When you pray the Rosary, say after each mystery;


O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,

save us from the fires of hell,

and lead all souls to Heaven,

especially those in most need of Your Mercy.


Next Step is the Connecting Centerpiece (Medallion)


The First Glorious mystery   

- Primum mysterium Gloriósa   -


Resurrection of Jesus Christ

 Resurréctio  -



Mark 16:1-8, Matt 28:1-6




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.

 So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”

He said to them,


“It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has fixed by his own authority.

“you shall receive power, after the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be my witnesses, both in Jerusalem and to the end of the earth.”



And when he had said these things, as they beheld, he was taken up, and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, and said, 


”why stand looking towards heaven?

This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven,

shall so come in like manner as you saw him go into heaven.”

And when the day of Pentecost had fully come, the disciples were all together at the same time.


And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a rushing, violent blast, and filled the whole house where they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues like fire distributing themselves, and it sat on each one of them; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.


All were astonished, saying:


”And how hear we, each one in our own language?

How hear we them speaking in our own tongues,

the mighty works of God?


… What can this be?”

Assumption of Mary into Heaven 

 - Assúmptio


1 Thess 4:13-1





But we do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those that have fallen asleep, 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. …


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.

So shall we always be with the Lord.


So then comfort one another in these words.

- Coronátio in Caelo  - 


Rev. 12:1, 14:1-5, Isa 6:3, Jud 13:18-20




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.

“Holy, holy, holy

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

AT THE CONNECTING MEDALLION

CONCLUDING PRAYER BEFORE THE CROSS which concludes the Wreath for a fruitful perfection


Oratio ad Finem Rosarii Dicenda



The Rosary is a perfect wreath!

We have now reached the connecting medallion which unites our intentions and prayers


On the medallion, we pray Salve Regina, and the Marian hymn is at the end of the Rosary;



Let us pray:

O, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,

Hail 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.



V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,

R. that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.



Orémus:


Salve Regina,

Mater misericordiae,

vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.

Ad te clamamus, exsules filii Hevae.

Ad te suspiramus,

gementes et flentes in hac lacrimarum valle.

Eia ergo, advocata nostra,

illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte.

Et Iesum,

benedictum fructum ventris tui,

nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.

O clemens, o pia,

o dulcis Virgo Maria.



V. Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genitrix.

R. Ut digni efficamur promissionibus Christi.




Let us pray:

O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection,

has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation.

Grant, we beseech Thee: that while meditating on these mysteries

of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary,

that we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise,

through Christ our Lord.



Orémus:

Déus, cújus Unigénitus per vítam, mortem, et resurrectiónem

súam nóbis salútis ætérnæ præmia comparávit: concéde, quæsumus:

ut hæc mystéria sacratíssimo beátæ Maríæ Vírginis Rosário recoléntes,

Per eúndem Chrístum Dóminum nóstrum.

ADDENDUM II


The Pearls of the Rosary Lead us to the Cross of the Rosary


- Let us, like Virgin Mary, stay at the foot of the Cross -


LET US PRAY AT THE CROSS OF THE ROSARY:


Let us pray for the Papal intentions and let us pray for our Holy Father – Pope Francis, (for his conversion and eternal soul).


May the Lord preserve him and give him life and make him to be blessed upon
the earth and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies.


May Thy hand be upon Thine holy servant and upon Thy son whom Thou hast anoited.


Lord Jesus, shelter our Holy Father the Pope under the protection of Thy Sacred Heart.


Be Thou his light, his strength and his consolation.




As per request from our Holy Father on 29 Sept. 2018, the Rosary shall end with:


Let us pray:

We fly to Thy patronage, O Holy Mother of God;

despise not thou our petitions in our necessities.

but deliver us always from all dangers, O Glorious and Blessed Virgin.


Oremus:

Sub tuum praesidium confugimus, Sancta Dei Genetrix.

Nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus,

sed a periculis cunctis libera nos semper,

Virgo gloriosa et benedicta.




Let us pray:

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;

be our defense 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

thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits

who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.



Oremus:

Sancte Michael Archángele,

defénde nos in prælio;

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.
