CONCLUDING PRAYERS OF THE HOLY ROSARY

(​​​​​​​To be said after the Rosary.)

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.

Pray for us O most holy Mother of God.

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray. 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, meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

 

 PRAYER TO SAINT MICHAEL

Holy 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 host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

 

CONCLUDING THE ROSARY

May the Divine Assistance remain always with us. And may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen. 

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