THE PENITENT'S ROSARY

PRAYER TO COMMENCE THE ROSARY WITH A HONEST MIND AND HEART

(These prayers may be prayed during the sacrament of extreme unction, just like it can be prayed each night as an examiniation of conscience. The Confiteor is a very powerful prayer that invokes Saints by name to pray for the penitent to assist in the act of contrition and to receive full absolution from Almighty God.)

+ In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti, Amen 

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

ACTUS CONTRITIONIS

Act of Contrition

Deus meus, ex toto corde pænitet me omnium meorum peccatorum, eaque detestor, quia peccando, non solum pœnas a Te iuste statutas promeritus sum, sed præsertim quia offendi Te, summum bonum, ac dignum qui super omnia diligaris.

Ideo firmiter propono, adiuvante gratia Tua, de cetero me non peccaturum peccandique occasiones proximas fugiturum.

Amen

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins, because of Thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace, henceforth to sin no more and avoid the next occasion to sin.

Amen

Confiteor Deo omnipotenti,

beatae Mariae semper Virgini, beato Michaeli Archangelo,

beato Joanni Baptistae, sanctis Apostolis Petro et Paulo, omnibus Sanctis, et tibi pater, quia peccavi nimis cogitatione, verbo et opere:


mea culpa,    mea culpa,    mea maxima culpa  


Ideo precor beatam Mariam semper Virginem, beatum Michaelem Archangelum, beatum Joannem Baptistam, sanctos Apostolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater orare pro me ad Dominum Deum nostrum.

Amen.

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, to all the saints, and to thee, father that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed,


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 thee father to pray for me to the Lord our God.

Amen


Deus meus, credo in te, spero in te, amo te super omnia ex tota anima mea, ex toto corde meo, ex totis viribus meis: amo te quia es infinite bonus et dignus qui ameris; et quia amo te, me paeitet ex toto corde te offendisse: miserere mihi peccatori.

Amen.

My God, I believe in Thee, I hope in Thee, I love Thee above all things with all my soul, with all my heart and with all my strength; I love Thee because Thou art infinitely good and worthy of being loved; and because I love Thee, I repent with all my heart of having offended Thee; have mercy on me, a sinner.

dearly beloved, to God the Father almighty, that He purge the world of all its errors, banish diseases, drive away famine, open the prisons, loose the shackles, grant to those that journey to be restored to their homes; to the sick, health; to those at sea, a haven of safety.

Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum...

Almighty, eternal God, Who dost save all, and willest not that any should perish, look upon the souls deceived by diabolical fraud, that, abandoning all heretical depravity, the hearts of the erring may regain sanity and return to the unity of truth.

R/. Amen.

Oremus et pro paganis: ut Deus omnipotens auferat iniquitatem a cordibus eorum; ut relictis idolis suis, convertantur ad Deum vivum et verum, et unicum Filium eius Iesum Christum, Deum et Dominum nostrum.

Let us pray also for the pagans: that almighty God may remove iniquity from their hearts, so that they may leave their idols and be converted to the living and true God and His only Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and God.  

Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui non mortem peccatorum, sed vitam semper inquiris: suscipe propitius orationem nostram, et libera eos ab idolorum cultura; et aggrega Ecclesiae tuae sanctae, ad laudem et gloriam nominis tui.

Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum...

Ad te, beate Joseph,

in tribulatione nostra confugimus, atque implorato Sponsæ tuæ sanctissimmæ auxilio, patrocinium quoque tuum fidenter exposcimus. Per eam, quæsumus, quæ te cum immaculata Virgine Dei Genitrice conjunxit caritatem, perque paternum, quo Puerum Jesum amplexus es, amorem, supplices deprecamur, ut ad hereditatem, quam Jesus Christus acquisivit sanguine suo, benignus respicias, ac necessitatibus nostris tua virtute et ope succurras.

Original prayer: Leo XIII, Quamquam Pluries. 15 aug. 1889


To you, O blessed Joseph, we have recourse in our affliction, and having implored the help of your thrice holy Spouse, We now, with hearts filled with confidence, Earnestly beg you also to take us under your protection. By that charity, by which you were united to the Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God, and by that fatherly love, with which you did cherish the Child Jesus, We beseech you and we humbly pray that you will look down with gracious eyes upon That inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased by His Blood, And will aid us in our need by your power and strength.


Defend O most watchful guardian of the Holy family, The chosen offspring of Jesus Christ. Keep from us, O most loving Father, all blight of error and corruption. Aid us from on high, most valiant defender, In this conflict with the powers of darkness, and even as of old, You did rescue the Child Jesus from the peril of His life, So now defend God's Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity. Shield us ever under your patronage, that, following your example and strengthened by your help, we may live a holy life, die a happy death, and attain everlasting bliss in Heaven.

Act of Consecration to Jesus, Mary and Joseph

 

Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
By St. Margaret Mary Alacoque


O Sacred Heart of Jesus, to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials, and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving, honoring and glorifying Thee. This is my irrevocable will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love, renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee.

I take Thee, O Sacred Heart, for the sole object of my love, the protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my frailty and inconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be Thou, O Most Merciful Heart, my justification before God Thy Father, and screen me from His anger which I have so justly merited. I fear all from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope all from Thine infinite Goodness. Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee.
I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite Goodness, grant that my name be engraved upon Thy Heart, for in this I place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants.

Amen.

 

Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
By St. Maximilian Kolbe


O Immaculata, Queen of heaven and earth, refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother, God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to you. I, (Name…), a repentant sinner, cast myself at your feet humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have, wholly to yourself as your possession and property. Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body, of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases you. If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of you: “She will crush your head,” and, “You alone have destroyed all heresies in the world.” Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing your glory to the maximum in all the many strayed and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far as possible the blessed kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. For wherever you enter you obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is through your hands that all graces come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.


V. Allow me to praise you, O sacred Virgin.
R. Give me strength against your enemies.


Amen


 

Act of Consecration to the Chaste Heart of St. Joseph


O Glorious Patriarch and Patron of the Catholic Church! O Virgin Spouse of God, and guardian and foster father of the Incarnate Word! In the presence of Jesus and Mary, I choose thee this day to be my guardian and father.

O thou whom God has constituted Head of the Holy Family, accept me, I beseech thee, though utterly unworthy, to be a poor little servant in thy holy house. Present me to thy Immaculate Spouse, ask her also to accept me as a servant and to adopt me as a child. With her, teach me, thou who art a master of the interior life, how to converse constantly with Jesus and how to serve Him faithfully in all things to the end of my life.

To thy custody was committed the Living Bread of Heaven, to be dispensed to thy starving brethren. O, with Mary help me to prepare the poor stable of my heart to receive, worthily and often, the Bread of my salvation. Let me receive it from thy hands and from those of Mary, as often as I approach the Holy Table.

O my tender and watchful father, I hereby consecrate myself to thee; and I firmly purpose and resolve never to leave thee, and never to say or do anything, nor to suffer anyone under my charge to say or do anything, against thy honor! O thou head of the house of God upon earth, in faithful imitation of Jesus and Mary, I place myself and all my concerns under thy care and protection. To thee, after Jesus and Mary, I consecrate my body and soul with all their faculties, my spiritual progress, my home, and all my affairs and undertakings.

Forsake me not, but adopt me as a servant and a child of the Holy Family. Watch over me at all times, but especially in the last awful hour of my life on earth: then visit, console, and strengthen me with Jesus and Mary, that with them and thee I may sing the praises of the adorable Trinity for all eternity.

Amen


“Dignare me laudare te, Virgo Sacrata. Da mihi virtutem contra hostes tuos!”

(Mark 14:32-42)


(We do the Sign of the Cross      Fides,   Spes   a nd   Caritas    which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

They come to a place, which is named Gethsemane; and he says to his disciples:

Sit here till I pray.

 

He took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be distressed and in anguish, and said to them:

My soul is encompassed with sorrow even to death: remain here and keep watch.


And going forward a little he fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it was possible, the hour might pass away from him; and he said:

Abba, Father, all things are possible for thee; remove this cup from me: yet not what I will, but what thou want.

 

He returned and finds them sleeping, and says to Peter:

Simon, sleepest thou? hadst thou not strength to watch one hour? Watch and pray, pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.


Getsemane, Lucas van Leyden, 1517. Art of Christianity Collection. Used with Permission.


And again, he went away and prayed, saying the same words. When he returned, he found them sleeping again; for their eyes were heavy; and they knew not what to answer him.

He comes back the third time and says to them:

Sleep the remaining time, and rest?

 

it is enough; the hour has come:

Behold, the Son of man is delivered into the hands of sinners.

Rise, let us go:

Behold, he that delivers me up - is at hand.

Iesus Flagellatus   - Jesus Before Pilate

(Mark 15:1-15, Matt 27:17, 19, 21, 24-26)


(We do the Sign of the Cross      Fides,   Spes   a nd   Caritas    which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

1And immediately in the morning, the chief priests holding consultation, with the elders and the scribes, and the whole Council. They bound Jesus and led him away and delivered him to Pilate.


2And Pilate asked him: Art thou the King of the Jews?

And Jesus answered and said to him: Thou sayest.

 

3And the chief priests accused him of many things. 4Pilate again asked him:

Answerest thou nothing? See of how many things they accuse thee,

 

5But Jesus no longer answered any thing: so that Pilate wondered.

6At every feast Pilate released to them one prisoner whom they chose. 7And there was one called Barabbas who was put in prison with some seditious men, who in the insurrection had committed murder. 8The multitude then came and began to ask Pilate to do for them according to his custom. 17Pilate said to them:

Whom will you that I release to you, Barabbas or Jesus who is called Christ?

 

19And while he sat on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying: Have nothing to do with that just man; for I have suffered much this day in a dream because of him.

 

20The chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd that they should ask for Barabbas, and to have Jesus destroyed.


21And the governor said to them: Which of the two will you that I release to you?

They said: Barabbas.

 

22Pilate says to them: What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?

 

They say all: Let him be crucified.

But he said: Why, what evil has he done?

They cried out the more, saying: Let him be crucified.

 

11The chief priests instigated the crowd that he should rather release Barabbas to them. 12And Pilate again answered and said to them:

What then will you that I shall do with him whom you call King of the Jews?

 

13They again cried out: Crucify him.

14But Pilate said to them: Why, what evil has he done?

But they cried out vehemently: Crucify him.

 

24And Pilate seeing that nothing avails, but rather that a tumult is rising, took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying:

I am innocent of the blood of this man: see you to it.

16Then therefore Pilate delivered Jesus to the Chief Priests to be crucified.

 

26And as they led him away, they lay hold on Simon, a Cyrenian, coming from the country, they laid the cross on him, that he might bear it after Jesus.

 

17…And bearing the cross, he went forth to that place called Calvary, or in Hebrew called Golgotha.

Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me; but weep for yourselves and for your children; 29for behold, there are coming days in which they shall say: Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that did not give suck. 30Then shall they begin to say to the mountains: Fall on us, and to the hills: Cover us; 31for if they do these things in the green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

(We do the Sign of the Cross      Fides,   Spes   a nd   Caritas    which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

33at the place, called Calvary, they crucified Jesus and the two evildoers, one on the right and the other on the left of Jesus.

 

34Jesus said: Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

 

The soldiers mocked him and were dividing his clothing among them, they cast lots.


35The people stood looking on; …


31In like manner also the chief priests deriding among themselves with the scribes said:

Others he saved, himself he cannot save. Christ the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, that we may see and believe.


38there was also a superscription over him:

 

THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

 

39And one of the evildoers who were hanged blasphemed him, saying:

If thou be Christ? save thyself and us.


40But the other, answering, rebuked him and said:

Do not even thou fear God, seeing that thou art in the same condemnation?

We indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of what we have done;

but this man has done nothing evil.


42Then he said: Jesus, remember me when thou come in thy kingdom.


43Jesus said to him:

Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in Paradise. 


44 And it was almost the sixth hour; and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 

46 And Jesus crying out with a loud voice, said:

Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.


And saying this, he gave up the ghost.



45 And the sun was darkened,

and the veil of the temple was rent of two, from the top to the bottom,

in the midst as the earth quaked.

ecce qui tollit peccatum mundi.


On the next day he sees Jesus coming to him,

and says:

Behold, the Lamb of God,

that takes away the sin of the world.


(Johannes 1:29)
