After the completion of five mysteries (5 decades), the following is customarily said:
Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, 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.
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. Amen.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
O Eternal and Incarnate Wisdom! O sweetest and most Adorable Jesus!
True God and True Man, only Son of the Eternal Father, and of Mary always Virgin!
I adore Thee profoundly in the bosom and splendors of Thy Father during eternity;
and I adore Thee also in the Virginal bosom of Mary, Thy most worthy Mother, in the time of Thine Incarnation.
I give Thee thanks for that Thou hast annihilated Thyself, in taking the form of a slave,
in order to rescue me from the cruel slavery of the devil.
I praise and glorify Thee for that Thou hast been pleased to submit Thyself to Mary, Thy holy Mother, in all things,
in order to make me Thy faithful slave through her. But, alas! ungrateful and faithless as I have been,
I have not kept the promises which I made so solemnly to Thee in my Baptism;
I have not fulfilled my obligations;
I do not deserve to be called Thy son, nor yet Thy slave;
and as there is nothing in me which does not merit Thine anger and Thy repulse,
I dare no more come by myself before Thy Most Holy and August Majesty.
It is on this account that I have recourse to the intercession of Thy most holy Mother,
whom Thou hast given me for a mediatrix with Thee. It is by her means that I hope to obtain of Thee contrition,
and the pardon of my sins, the acquisition and the preservation of wisdom.
I salute thee, then, O immaculate Mary, living tabernacle of the Divinity,
where the Eternal Wisdom willed to be hidden, and to be adored by Angels and by men.
I hail thee, O Queen of heaven and earth, to whose empire everything is subject which is under God.
I salute thee, O sure refuge of sinners, whose mercy fails to no one.
Hear the desires which I have of the Divine Wisdom; and for that end, receive the vows and offerings which my lowness presents to thee.
I, (name), a faithless sinner, I renew and ratify to-day in thy hands the vows of my Baptism;
I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom,
to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.
In the presence of all the heavenly court I choose thee this day for my Mother and Mistress.
I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior,
and even the value of all my good actions, past, present, and future;
leaving to you the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me,
without exception, according to thy good pleasure, to the greatest glory of God, in time and in eternity.
Receive, O benignant Virgin, this little offering of my slavery, in the honor of, and in union with,
that subjection which the Eternal Wisdom deigned to have to thy Maternity,
in homage to the power which both of you have over this little worm and miserable sinner,
and in thanksgiving for the privileges with which the Holy Trinity hath favored thee.
I protest that I wish henceforth, as thy true slave, to seek thy honor and to obey thee in all things.
O admirable Mother, present me to thy dear Son as His eternal slave,
so that as He hath redeemed me by thee, by thee He may receive me.
O Mother of mercy, get me the grace to obtain the true Wisdom of God;
and for that end put me in the number of those whom thou lovest, whom thou teachest,
whom thou conductest, and whom thou nourishest and protectest, as thy children and thy slaves.
O faithful Virgin, make me in all things so perfect a disciple, imitator,
and slave of the Incarnate Wisdom, Jesus Christ thy Son, that I may attain, by thy intercession,
and by thy example, to the fullness of His age on earth, and of His glory in the heavens. Amen.
O Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our most gentle Queen and Mother, look down in mercy upon England thy “Dowry” and upon us all who greatly hope and trust in you. By you it was that Jesus our Saviour and our hope was given unto the world; and He has given you to us that we might hope still more. Plead for us your children, whom you did receive and accept at the foot of the Cross, O sorrowful Mother. Intercede for our separated brethren, that with us in the one true fold they may be united to the Chief Shepherd, the Vicar of thy Son. Pray for us all, dear Mother, that by faith fruitful in good works we may all deserve to see and praise God, together with thee, in our heavenly home. Amen.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly Hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
Mary, Mother of Jesus,
throw your mantle of purity over our priests.
Protect them, guide them, and keep them in your heart.
Be a Mother to them,
especially in times of discouragement and loneliness.
Love them and keep them belonging completely to Jesus.
Like Jesus, they, too, are your sons,
so keep their hearts pure and virginal.
Keep their minds filled with Jesus,
and put Jesus always on their lips,
so that he is the one they offer to sinners and to all they meet.
Mary, Mother of Jesus, be their Mother,
loving them and bring them joy.
Take special care of sick and dying priests,
and the ones most tempted.
Remember how they spent their youth and old age,
their entire lives serving and giving all to Jesus.
Mary, bless them and keep a special place for them in your heart.
Give them a piece of your heart,
so beautiful and pure and immaculate,
so full of love and humility,
so that they, too, can grow in the likeness of Christ.
Dear Mary, make them humble like you, and holy like Jesus. Amen.
Angel of God’s light, whom God sends as a companion for me on earth, protect me from the snares of the devil, and help me to walk always as a child of God, my Creator.
Angel of God’s truth, whose perfect knowledge serves what is true, protect me from deceits and temptations. Help me to know the truth, and always to live the truth.
Angel of God’s love, who praises Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, who sacrificed His life for love of us, sustain me as I learn the ways of Divine love, of sacrificial generosity, of meekness and lowliness of heart.
Thank You, my heavenly friend, for your watchful care. At the moment of my death, bring me to heaven, where the one true God, Who is light, Truth and Love, lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.
