Through thee, to us, our Savior came,
Through thee, to Him, we fain would go.
Our lives are marred by wrong and shame,
Yet, confidence in thee we know.
The friendship thou dost give to all
Who love thy name, shall ever be
Assurance thou wilt hear our call,
Sweet Lady of the Rosary!
Thou art our Strength upon the way,
Our Morning Star, to cheer and guide; with picture
Our Beacon Light to show the day,
And lead us to the Savior's Side;
A Comforter in ev'ry pain
We find, O Mother blest, in thee,
And seek we, never, thee in vain,
Fair Lady of the Rosary!
Thy praises, Mary, we would sing,
And all our faculties employ,
That unto thee our hearts might bring
A glory-crown of love and joy.
Bless thou each humble effort made
In thy regard, and grant that we
May by thy influence be swayed,
Our Lady of the Rosary!

Prayer to be said before the Rosary
We unite ourselves with all the saints in Heaven,
with all the just on earth and with all the faithful
we wish were here present. We unite ourselves with
Thee, Oh my Jesus, in order to praise worthily Thy
most Holy Mother and to praise Thee in her and
We renounce all the distractions we may have
during this rosary which we wish to say with
modesty, attention and devotion, just as if it were
to be the last of our lives.
We ask of Thee a lively faith, a firm hope and an ardent charity.
Below you will find some coloring pictures for the children. May you all have a blessed feast of the Most Holy Rosary.
