“Somebody who says his Rosary alone only gains the merit of one Rosary, but if he says it together with thirty other people he gains the merit of thirty Rosaries. This is the law of public prayer. How profitable, how advantageous this is!”

– Saint Louis de Montfort
 Secret of the Rosary

*(Pope Sixtus IV, in 1475, was the first to endow the recitation of the Angelus at noon with an indulgence. This indulgence was confirmed and extended by Pope Leo X in 1517 to whoever recited it in the morning, at noon, and in the evening, and Pope Pius XI (1922-1939) seems to have been the last one to grant an indulgence.)

LEADER: The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary…
ALL: And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.

LEADER: Behold the handmaid of the Lord…
ALL: Be it done unto me according to Thy Word.

LEADER: And the Word was made Flesh…
ALL: And dwelt among us.

LEADER: Pray for us, O holy Mother of God…
ALL: That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.

LEADER: Let us pray…
ALL: Pour forth, we beseech Thee O Lord,
Thy grace into our hearts.
That we, to whom the incarnation of Christ Thy Son,
was made known by the message of an angel.
May by His passion and cross,
be brought to the glory of His resurrection,
through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

“Come, Holy Spirit, come through the Woman Clothed With the Sun, all the glory of the King’s daughter is within.”



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.

LEADER: Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
RESPONSE That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.


Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our safeguard 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,
Cast into hell, Satan and all the other evil spirits,
Who prowl throughout the world, seeking the ruin of souls.


Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God’s love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard, to rule and guide.



“My daughter, the motive is simple: there are five ways in which people offend and blaspheme against the Immaculate Heart of Mary: ( 1) the blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception, (2) against her virginity, (3) against the Divine Maternity, refusing at the same time to accept her as the Mother of all mankind, (4) those who try publicly to implant in the children’s hearts indifference, contempt, and even hatred against this Immaculate Mother, and (5) those who insult her directly in her sacred images.”

“Here, my daughter, is the reason why the Immaculate Heart of Mary [My Mother] causes Me to ask for this little act of reparation and due to it move My mercy to forgive those souls who had the misfortune of offending her. As for you, try without ceasing, with all your prayers and sacrifices, to move Me into mercifulness toward those poor souls.”

– Our Savior to Sister Lucia of Fatima, 1930
