The Sorrowful Mysteries
The Glorious Mysteries
The Luminous Mysteries
How To Say the Rosary
The complete Rosary consists of twenty decades divided
Mysteries said on specific days, each containing 5 decades: the Joyful
on Monday and Saturday, the Sorrowful on Tuesday & Friday,
the Glorious Mysteries are prayed on Wednesday &
Sunday, and the Luminous Mysteries are prayed
We begin the Rosary by blessing ourselves with the crucifix, and then
small beads above the crucifix, say the "Apostles' Creed," one "Our
Father," three "Hail Marys," and one "Glory Be
Father," followed by the "Fatima Prayer." We then meditate
on the mysteries, say
and then ten "Hail Mary's," which correspond to the ten smaller
each decade. Each decade is followed by "Glory Be," and the
"Fatima Prayer." At
the end of the
Rosary, say the "Hail, Holy Queen."

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 Spirit,
Born of the Virgin Mary,
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 sits 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 Spirit,
The holy catholic Church,
The Communion of Saints,
The forgiveness of sins,
The resurrection of the body,
And Life everlasting.
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 that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Hail, Mary, full of grace
the Lord is with thee;
Blessed art thou among women,
And blessed is thy fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death.
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.
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
us from the fire of hell.
Lead all souls to heaven,
who are most in need
Of Thy Mercy.
