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.
Prayers at the Crucifix
Let us pray for our Holy Father – Pope Francis I , for his conversion and eternal soul. Let us pray for the Papal intentions:
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.
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.
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.
† 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.
