The solution to every problem: The Holy Rosary

 

In most of Her apparitions, especially at Lourdes and Fatima, Our Lady wore a rosary and insisted on the daily recitation of the rosary. In Her last apparition in Fatima, Our Lady called Herself “Our Lady of the Rosary.”

On December 26, 1957, Sister Lucia of Fatima had a long conversation with Father Augustine Fuentes. She urged him to make known to everyone the message of the Blessed Virgin and the remedy that our good Mother offered to Her children on earth to cure them of all ills of soul and body: the daily recitation of the Rosary.

“The two means for saving the world are prayer and sacrifice. So then, there is the Holy Rosary. Look, Father, in these latter times in which we live, the Blessed Virgin has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary. In such a way that there is no problem, however difficult it may be, be it temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families – whether they be families living in the world or of religious communities – or in the life of peoples and nations. There is no problem, I repeat, there is no problem however difficult it may be, that we cannot solve through the prayer of the Holy Rosary. With the Holy Rosary we will save ourselves, we will sanctify ourselves, we will console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls.”

On fait le Signe de la Croix

Au nom du Père, et du Fils, et du Saint-Esprit, et de la Mère de Dieu. Ainsi soit-il.

Offrande du chapelet

Je m’unis à tous les Saints et les saints Anges qui sont dans le ciel, à tous les justes qui sont sur la terre, à toutes les âmes fidèles qui sont dans ce lieu. Je m’unis à Vous, mon Jésus, pour louer dignement Votre sainte Mère et Vous louer en Elle et par Elle. Je renonce à toutes les distractions qui me viendront pendant ce chapelet que je veux dire avec modestie, attention et dévotion, comme si c’était le dernier de ma vie. Ainsi soit-il.

On récite le Symbole des Apôtres

Je crois en Dieu, le Père tout-puissant, Créateur du ciel et de la terre; et en Jésus-Christ Son Fils unique, Notre-Seigneur; qui a été conçu du Saint-Esprit, est né de la Vierge Marie, a souffert sous Ponce Pilate, a été crucifié, est mort, a été enseveli, est descendu aux enfers, le troisième jour est ressuscité des morts, est monté aux cieux, est assis à la droite de Dieu, le Père tout-puissant, d’où Il viendra juger les vivants et les morts.
Je crois au Saint-Esprit, la sainte Église de Jésus-Christ, la Communion des Saints, la rémission des péchés, la résurrection de la chair, la vie éternelle.  Ainsi soit-il.

On récite un Notre Père

Notre Père, qui êtes aux cieux, que Votre Nom soit sanctifié, que Votre règne arrive, que Votre volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd’hui notre pain quotidien, pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons à ceux qui nous ont offensés. Et ne nous laissez pas succomber à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal. Ainsi soit-il.

On récite trois Je Vous salue Marie

Je Vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâce, le Seigneur est avec Vous; Vous êtes bénie entre les femmes, et Jésus, Votre Fils, est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu et notre Mère, priez pour nous, pécheurs, maintenant et à l’heure de notre mort. Ainsi soit-il.

On récite un Gloire au Père

Gloire au Père, au Fils et au Saint-Esprit, et à la Mère de Dieu.
Comme au commencement, maintenant et toujours dans les siècles des siècles. Ainsi soit-il.

We do the Sign of the Cross.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and of the Mother of God. Amen.

Offering of the Rosary

I unite myself to all the Saints and holy Angels who are in heaven, to all the righteous who are on earth, to all the faithful souls who are in this home. I unite myself to You, my Jesus, to praise Your holy Mother with dignity and to praise You in and through Her. I renounce all the distractions that will come to me during this Rosary that I want to say with modesty, attention and devotion, as if it were the last of my life. Amen.

We recite the Symbol of the Apostles.

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 Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Church of Jesus Christ, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

We recite a 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.

We recite three Hail Marys.

Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee; blessed art Thou among women, and blessed is Thy Son, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, pray for us, sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

We recite a Glory be to the Father.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, and to the Mother of God.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
