2 The Rosary has a Cross on it to remind you of Jesus who loved you so much that he died on the Cross for you.
3 Hold the cross of the Rosary in your right hand and bless yourself with the Cross, saying, "In the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit Amen."
4 Still holding the Cross, say, The "Apostles' Creed.“ I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.I believe in Jesus Christ, his only son, our Lord.He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary.He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again.He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the FatherHe will come again to judge the living and the deadI 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.
5 On the first large bead after the Cross, say the Our Father Our Father, in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.AllGive us today our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Save us form the time of trial and deliver us from evil, Amen.
6 Hail Mary, full of grace; the Lord is with you: blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.AllHoly Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. AmenOn the next three small beads, say the Hail Mary
7 After the third Hail Mary, say the 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."
8 Say the "Our Father" on the large bead, Announce the first mysteryOn the next ten beads say theHail Mary
9 After the 10 Hail Mary’s we sometimes say, the Fatima prayer between decades. Fatima Prayer "O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Your mercy".

Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus; O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
