The Virgin Mary said to blessed Alain de la Roche (in the XV century):
"The soul that is entrusted by the Rosary will not perish."
"I very soon liberate from purgatory the devout souls of my Rosary."
"Everything that is asked of me with the Rosary will be achieved promptly."
• Sign of the Cross
• Act of Contrition
• Apostles Creed
• Fruit of the mystery (for example for the first joyful mystery: "The joy of our faith")
• Our Father
• 10 Hail Mary's (meditating the mystery)
• Glory Be
• Decade Prayer
"O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee".
"Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You".
"Sacred Heart of Mary, pray for us".
"St. Joseph, protect us".
"Holy Guardian Angels, watch over us".
"May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen".
We can also ask for an intention for the entire novena, the Rosary, or in each mystery or decade.
