The Holy Rosary in Latin and English

Peter Fournier and Catherine Fournier

In nomine Patris,
et Filii,
et Spiritus Sancti,
In the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost,
Credo in Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, Creatorem caeli et terrae;
et in Jesum Christum,
Filium eius unicum, Dominum nostrum,

Qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto,
natus ex Maria Virgine,
passus sub Pontio Pilato,
crucifixus, mortuus et sepultus;
descendit ad inferos;
tertia die resurrexit a mortuis,
ascendit in caelum,
sedet ad dexteram Dei, Patris omnipotentis,
inde venturus est judicare vivos et mortuos.

Credo in Spiritum Sanctum;
Sanctam Ecclesiam Catholicam,
sanctorum communionem;
remissionem peccatorum;
carnis resurrectionem;
vitam aeternam. Amen.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ,
His only Son, Our Lord,

Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
He descended into hell;
the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty;
from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost;
the Holy Catholic Church,
the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and life everlasting. Amen.
Pater noster, Qui es in coelis,
sanctificetur nomen Tuum;
adveniat regnum Tuum;
fiat voluntas Tua,
sicut in coelo et in terra.

Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie;
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris;
et ne nos inducas in tentationem;
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
Our Father, Who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum;
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.

Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Gloria Patri,
et Filio,
et Spiritui Sancto.

Sicut erat in principio,
et nunc,
et semper,
et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

Glory be to the Father,
to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost.

As it was in the beginning,
is now,
and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
Salve, Regina, Mater misericordiae!
vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.
Ad te clamamus, exules filii Evae.

Ad te suspiramus,
gementes, et flentes, in hac lacrimarum valle.
Eia ergo, advocata nostra,
illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte.
Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exilium ostende.
O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo Maria!

Ora pro nobis, Sancta Dei Genetrix,
Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
our life, our sweetness, and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.

To thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
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!

Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Gratiam tuam quaesumus, Domine,
mentibus nostris infunde, ut qui,
angelo nuntiante, Christi Filii tui
incarnationem cognovimus
per passionem eius et crucem,
ad resurrectionem gloriam perducamur,
per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

Let us pray:
Pour forth we beseech Thee, O Lord,
Thy grace into our hearts,
that we to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy Son,
was made known by the message of an angel,
may by His passion and cross
be brought to the glory of His resurrection,
through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
O mi Jesu, dimitte nobis debita nostra;
libera nos ab igne inferni;
conduc in caelum omnes animas
praesertim illas quae maxime indigent misericordia tua.!
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of hell;
lead all souls to heaven,
especially those in most need of Thy Mercy!
