First choose a set of mysteries from the table to the right.

Each mystery is divided into 5 decades. Each decade consists of the Our Father, ten Hail Marys, and the Glory Be.

You will reflect on the mysteries as you pray each decade.

Begin prayers by holding the crucifix and follow along the arrows praying the corresponding prayers.

1) Hold the crucifix in your hand, make the sign of the cross and recite the Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended to the dead; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence 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.
Amen

2) On the first bead pray one Our Father

Our Father who is in heaven, holy be your name. Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen

3) On the next three beads pray 3 Hail Marys.

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Follow the arrows on the diagram

Then pray one Glory Be
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

4) Begin the first decade on the next separate bead. Announce the first mystery and reflect on this moment in the life of Jesus and pray one Our Father.

5) For each of the next 10 beads continue your reflection on the first mystery and pray one Hail Mary on each bead. After the final Hail Mary; finish the decade by praying one Glory Be.

6) Begin the second decade on the next separate bead. Announce the second mystery and reflect on this moment in the life of Jesus and pray one Our Father.

7) For each of the next 10 beads continue your reflection on the second mystery and pray one Hail Mary on each bead. After the final Hail Mary; finish the decade by praying one Glory Be.

8) Begin the third decade on the next separate bead. Announce the third mystery and reflect on this moment in the life of Jesus and pray one Our Father.

9) For each of the next 10 beads continue your reflection on the third mystery and pray one Hail Mary on each bead. After the final Hail Mary; finish the decade by praying one Glory Be.

10) Begin the fourth decade on the next separate bead. Announce the fourth mystery and reflect on this moment in the life of Jesus and pray one Our Father.

11) For each of the next 10 beads continue your reflection on the fourth mystery and pray one Hail Mary on each bead. After the final Hail Mary; finish the decade by praying one Glory Be.

12) Begin the fifth decade on the next separate bead. Announce the fifth mystery and reflect on this moment in the life of Jesus and pray one Our Father.

13) For each of the next 10 beads continue your reflection on the fifth mystery and pray one Hail Mary on each bead. After the final Hail Mary; finish the decade by praying one Glory Be.

14) At the centerpiece recite the Hail, Holy Queen
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To you do we cry poor banished children of Eve. To you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, O most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of your 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.

Make the sign of the cross to finish.
