Rosary Prayer For Monday
The rosary is a traditional Catholic prayer, but it’s also used by other Christian groups. The rosary is a string of beads that are used to pray a set sequence of prayers or to count the number of Hail Mary’s one has said while meditating on spiritual mysteries. Each set of ten beads is called a decade, and there are five decades in the rosary. You pray one Our Father, three Hail Mary’s and one Glory Be between each decade. There are four sets of Mysteries (called Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous) plus an additional fifth set called “The Five First Saturdays” which consists of five decades dedicated to Our Lady before her Assumption—the first Saturday after Pentecost Sunday until October 13th—the anniversary date from when most Catholics begin praying these particular decades again).
Rosary Prayer For Monday
- Prayer is for Monday.
- Prayer is for the joyous mysteries.
- Prayer is for the second joyful mystery, “The Resurrection of Christ”.
- Prayer is for the gift of charity, or love in action as it’s sometimes called.
The first Joyful Mystery – The Annunciation
There are many ways to meditate on this mystery, but here’s one that we think works well: Mary was a young Jewish woman, engaged to Joseph. She lived in Nazareth and had never left her country before. One day an angel appeared to her and told her that she was going to be the mother of the Messiah!
- Mary was troubled by this news. How could it be? She had not been with a man yet!
The Second Joyful Mystery – Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth
“The Second Joyful Mystery is the Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56). The Visitation illustrates how God loves us as he loves Jesus.
We know that God loved Jesus so much that he was willing to let his son suffer and die for our sins. But this love goes deeper than that, because it also means loving us—loving you personally. The Holy Spirit wanted him so much and sent him into the world for our salvation! This is why he came down from heaven: not just because of what happened at Christmas (his birth), but because he wanted us too! He chose you before time began. He knew everything about your life even though it hasn’t happened yet; and somehow still loved each moment with all its ups and downs, trials and triumphs equally well—even better than if they were happening now.”
Pray for the gift of charity.
Pray for the gift of charity, which is the greatest of the Christian virtues. Charity is understanding and loving God, as well as your neighbor. The ultimate act of charity is to love God by loving your neighbor. This commandment and virtue are listed in the Bible as being greater than all others because it is more important than any other moral question in life (Matthew 22:34-40).
Our Father (The Lord’s Prayer)
“Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy 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.”
This prayer is the most well-known prayer of Christianity and has been translated into many languages around the world. It was originally written down by St Peter (St Peter’s Basilica is named after him) when he built his first church in Jerusalem, which was later destroyed by Emperor Nero during his persecution of Christians throughout Rome between 64 AD and 68 AD. The apostle John took over writing duties with this version recorded in Mathew 6:9-13 where Jesus also taught what’s known today as ‘The Lord’s Prayer’.
Hail Mary (The Angelic Salutation)
The Hail Mary is the most common prayer in the rosary. It is a prayer to the Virgin Mary, who is known by Catholics as “Our Lady” or “the Blessed Virgin.” The Hail Mary is a prayer to the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary (a doctrine which states that she was born without sin). The Hail Mary is also a prayer to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary (a belief that her body ascended into Heaven at her death).
The Angelic Salutation was first said by Mary herself when she greeted Gabriel as he appeared before her and announced that she would bear God’s Son: “Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with thee,” (Luke 1:28)
Glory Be (The Doxology)
The Doxology is a short prayer that praises God and asks for his blessing. The word “doxology” comes from the Greek word doxa, meaning “glory.” The Doxology is used in the Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican churches as a prayer of thanksgiving at the end of a hymn or prayer.
