The Sorrowful Mysteries


THE OFFERING PRAYER BEFORE THE SORROWFUL MYSTERIES

 incl. + Blessed Eucharist prayer from the first apparition of Our Lady of Fatima in May 13, 1917.

Eternal Father, I offer you this Rosary,

by Marie Immaculate Heart in union with her Son,

Jesus Christ's precious blood,

as thanksgiving for all your good deeds,

according to Jesus' Sacred Heart intentions;

for all grace and blessing that will

make us close this beloved Heart

in life, in death, in time and eternity; for the sick; the dying;

for the conversion of sinners and for the souls in Purgatory;

for those who have asked for our prayers

and who we are obliged to ask for and the family's intentions,

to You, God, may all lead to your greater honour

and glory and a glorious death for us all.

Let Your Divine virtues; Faith, Hope and Love

shine through the darkness.

My God, my God,I love You in the most Blessed Sacrament.

Amen


Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God

that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.

O Immaculata, Queen of Heaven and earth,

I renew my consecration to you for this day and for always,

so that you might use me

for the coming of the Kingdom of Jesus in the whole world.

To this end I offer you

all my prayers, actions and sacrifices of this day.

Let us kneel

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,

Let us arise

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended into hell;

on the third day He rose again from the dead;

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty,

from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

                              

I believe

in the Holy Spirit,

the Holy Catholic Church,

the Communion of Saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.

Creatorem coeli et terrae.

natus ex Maria virgine,

Leváte

passus sub Pontio Pilato,

crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus,

descendit ad infernos,

tertia die resurrexit a mortuis,

ascendit ad coelos,

sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis,

inde venturus est judicare vivos et mortuos.

 

Credo

in Spiritum Sanctum,

sanctam ecclesiam catholicam,

sanctorum communionem,

remissionem peccatorum,

carnis resurrectionem

et vitam aeternam.

The first Sorrowful mystery   - primum mysterium Dolorósa - 


  The Agony of Jesus in the Garden   - Iesu in Horto Olivarum -

(Mark 14:32-42)


(We do the Sign of the Cross in     Faith,   Hope   and   Love   which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

They come to a place, which is named Gethsemane; and he says to his disciples:

Sit here till I pray.

 

He took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be distressed and in anguish, and said to them:

My soul is encompassed with sorrow even to death: remain here and keep watch.


And going forward a little he fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it was possible, the hour might pass away from him; and he said:

Abba, Father, all things are possible for thee; remove this cup from me: yet not what I will, but what thou want.

 

He returned and finds them sleeping, and says to Peter:

Simon, sleepest thou? hadst thou not strength to watch one hour? Watch and pray, pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

 

And again, he went away and prayed, saying the same words.

And, when he returned, he found them sleeping again; for their eyes were heavy; and they knew not what to answer him.


He comes back the third time and says to them:

Sleep the remaining time, and rest?

 

it is enough; the hour has come:

Behold, the Son of man is delivered into the hands of sinners.

Rise, let us go:

Behold, he that delivers me up - is at hand.

The second Sorrowful mystery   - secundum mysterium Dolorósa - 


Jesus Before Pilate   - Iesu Flagellatus  - 

(Mark 15:1-15, Matt 27:17, 19, 21, 24-26)


(We do the Sign of the Cross in     Faith,   Hope   and   Love   which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

1And immediately in the morning, the chief priests holding consultation, with the elders and the scribes, and the whole Council. They bound Jesus and led him away and delivered him to Pilate.


2And Pilate asked him: Art thou the King of the Jews?

And Jesus answered and said to him: Thou sayest.

 

3And the chief priests accused him of many things. 4Pilate again asked him:

Answerest thou nothing? See of how many things they accuse thee,

 

5But Jesus no longer answered any thing: so that Pilate wondered.

Detail: Ecce Homo,Norblin de la Gourda, 1774.  The Art of Christianity Collection. AP00005. Used with Permssion.

6At every feast Pilate released to them one prisoner whom they chose. 7And there was one called Barabbas who was put in prison with some seditious men, who in the insurrection had committed murder. 8The multitude then came and began to ask Pilate to do for them according to his custom. 17Pilate said to them:

Whom will you that I release to you, Barabbas or Jesus who is called Christ?

 

19And while he sat on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying: Have nothing to do with that just man; for I have suffered much this day in a dream because of him.

 

20The chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd that they should ask for Barabbas, that Pilate should rather release Barabbas to them. 11The chief priests instigated the crowd  to have Jesus destroyed.


21And the governor said to them: Which of the two will you that I release to you?

They said: Barabbas.

 

12And Pilate again answered and said to them:

What then will you that I shall do with him whom who is called Christ?

 

13They again cried out: Crucify him.

14But Pilate said to them: Why, what evil has he done?

But they cried out vehemently: Crucify him.

 

24And Pilate seeing that nothing avails, but rather that a tumult is rising, took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying:


I am innocent of the blood of this man: see you to it.

15And so Pilate, willing to satisfy the multitude, released Barabbas,

and handed over Jesus, after he had scourged him, to be crucified.

17…And bearing the cross, he went forth to that place called Calvary, or in Hebrew called Golgotha.

Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me; but weep for yourselves and for your children; 29for behold, there are coming days in which they shall say: Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that did not give suck. 30Then shall they begin to say to the mountains: Fall on us, and to the hills: Cover us; 31for if they do these things in the green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

 

32And there were also two others, two evildoers, to be crucified with Jesus.

one on each side, and Jesus in the midst.

33at the place, called Calvary, they crucified Jesus and the two evildoers, one on the right and the other on the left of Jesus.

 

34Jesus said: Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

 

The soldiers mocked him and were dividing his clothing among them, they cast lots.


35The people stood looking on; …


31In like manner also the chief priests deriding among themselves with the scribes said:

Others he saved, himself he cannot save. Christ the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, that we may see and believe.


38there was also a superscription over him:

 

THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

 

39And one of the evildoers who were hanged blasphemed him, saying:

If thou be Christ? save thyself and us.


40But the other, answering, rebuked him and said:

Do not even thou fear God, seeing that thou art in the same condemnation?

We indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of what we have done;

but this man has done nothing evil.


42Then he said: Jesus, remember me when thou come in thy kingdom.


43Jesus said to him:

Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in Paradise. 


44 And it was almost the sixth hour; and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 

46 And Jesus crying out with a loud voice, said:

Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.


And saying this, he gave up the ghost.



45 And the sun was darkened,

and the veil of the temple was rent of two, from the top to the bottom,

in the midst as the earth quaked.

Oratio ad Finem Rosarii Dicenda

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

Déus, cújus Unigénitus per vítam,

mortem, et resurrectiónem súam nóbis salútis ætérnæ præmia comparávit: concéde, quæsumus: ut hæc mystéria sacratíssimo beátæ Maríæ Vírginis Rosário recoléntes,

et imitémur quod cóntinent,

et quod promíttunt, assequámur.

Per eúndem Chrístum Dóminum nóstrum.

Amen

Concluding Prayer Before the Cross


The Wreath is now closed at the connecting medallion where we

through our Hymn, Salve Regina, unite the intentions and prayers. 

Salve Regina,

Mater misericórdiae.

Vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve.

Ad te clamámus, éxsules fílii Evae.

Ad te suspirámus geméntes et flentes in hac lacrimárum valle.

Eia ergo, advocáta nostra,

illos tuos misericórdes óculos ad nos convérte.

Et Iesum,

benedíctum fructum ventris tui,

nobis, post hoc exsílium, osténde.

O clémens,

O pia,

O dulcis Virgo Maria!


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 the 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.

+ 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 

Let's pray (for our Shepherds):


In the Name of Jesus Christ, our God and Lord, strengthened by the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Blessed Michael the Archangel, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul and all the Saints, we confidently undertake to repulse the attacks and deceits of the devil.


O Jesus, this is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, for the Holy Father and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.


O Holy Mother of Priests, protect all priests from the dangers of their holy profession and lead the stray cardinals, bishops and priests who have failed their sublime vocation, with your kind motherly hand, back to the good shepherd!

Amen



Let us pray for our Holy Father – Pope Francis I - and his eternal soul and pray for the Popes Raccolta 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.

 

Amen


+ 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
