Prayer to Our Lady of the Rosary
Ask Mary to accompany you in the recitation of the Rosary and inspire you to take your prayer into your daily actions.
The Rosary is a beloved prayer among Catholics around the world. It is a meditative aid that can bring people closer to Jesus, through his mother, Mary.
Here is a prayer from the early 20th century that asks the Virgin Mary to accompany us in our recitation of the Rosary.
O Virgin Mary, grant that the recitation of thy Rosary may be for me each day, in the midst of my manifold duties, a bond of unity in my actions, a tribute of filial piety, a sweet refreshment, an encouragement to walk joyfully along the path of duty. Grant, above all, O Virgin Mary, that the study of thy fifteen mysteries may form in my soul, little by little, a luminous atmosphere, pure, strengthening, and fragrant, which may penetrate my understanding, my will, my heart, my memory, my imagination, my whole being. So shall I acquire the habit of praying while I work, without the aid of formal prayers, by interior acts of admiration and of supplication, or by aspirations of love. I ask this of thee, O Queen of the holy Rosary, through Saint Dominic, thy son of predilection, the renowned preacher of thy mysteries, and the faithful imitator of thy virtues. Amen.
