SECOND METHOD


A SHORTER WAY OF COMMEMORATING THE LIFE, DEATH AND
GLORY OF JESUS AND MARY IN THE
MOST HOLY ROSARY, AND A WAY TO CURB OUR
IMAGINATION AND TO LESSEN DISTRACTIONS

    IN ORDER to do this we must add a word or two to each Hail Mary (depending upon the decade) and this will help remind us which mystery we are commemorating. This word or words should be added after the word "Jesus." "And blessed is the fruit of Thy Womb";

    At the 1st Decade . . . . . "Jesus incarnate";
    At the 2nd " . . . . . "Jesus sanctifying";
    At the 3rd " . . . . . "Jesus born in poverty";
    At the 4th " . . . . . "Jesus sacrificed";
    At the 5th " . . . . . "Jesus, Saint among Saints";
    At the 6th " . . . . . "Jesus in His agony";
    At the 7th " . . . . . "Jesus scourged";
    At the 8th " . . . . . "Jesus crowned with thorns";
    At the 9th " . . . . . "Jesus carrying His Cross";
    At the 10th " . . . . . "Jesus crucified";
    At the 11th " . . . . . "Jesus risen from the dead";
    At the 12th " . . . . . "Jesus ascending to Heaven";
    At the 13th" . . . . . "Jesus filling Thee with the Holy Spirit";
    At the 14th " "Jesus raising Thee up";
    At the 15th " . . . . . "Jesus crowning Thee."

    At the end of the first five mysteries, we say: "[May the] Grace of the Joyful Mysteries come down into our souls and make them really holy";

    At the end of the second: "[May the] Grace of the Sorrowful Mysteries, come down into our souls and make them truly patient";

    And at the end of the third: "[May the] Grace of the Glorious Mysteries, come down into our souls and make them everlastingly happy. Amen."

THE MAIN RULES OF
THE CONFRATERNITY OF
THE MOST HOLY ROSARY

Members should:

    1. Have their names written in the Confraternity book, and, if possible, go to Confession and Holy Communion and say the Holy Rosary the same day that they are enrolled;

    2. Have a blessed rosary;

    3. Say the Holy Rosary every day or at least once a week;

    4. Whenever possible, go to Confession and Holy Communion the First Sunday of every month, and assist at the Holy Rosary Processions.

    Remember that none of these rules binds under pain of even venial sin.
