BLESSING OF THE ROSARY
[Printable Version Here]
To be said by a Catholic priest or deacon.
P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.
All: Who made heaven and earth.
P: The Lord be with you.
All: May He also be with you.
Let us pray.
Almighty and merciful God, whom it pleased to reveal the mystery of the Blessed Trinity through Your only-begotten Son, and through the prophets and the apostles, so that we on earth, imitating the choirs of holy angels might offer devout and worthy praise to You; we appeal to Your goodness, asking that You bless and hallow these rosaries (this rosary), which the Church has sanctioned for the honor and praise of the Most Holy Trinity. Let them (it) be endowed with such power of the Holy Spirit, that whoever carries one on his person or reverently keeps it in his home, or devoutly recites it may be protected by You from every danger to body and soul. Let him (her) share in all the graces, privileges and indulgences granted by the Holy See; and in the hour of death let him (her) deserve to be presented by Your holy angels at the throne of Your divine majesty; through Christ our Lord.
Rosaries to be sprinkled with holy water.
