Final Prayers

These prayers are a fitting conclusion, but are not an essential part of the rosary.


Hail Holy Queen:   Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, or 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 vale of tears.  Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards 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 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 life, grant, we beseech Thee, that meditating upon these mysteries of the 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.
