WHAT IS A ROSARY


A rosary is a series of prayers, linked like a crown of roses, sent heavenward. While praying these soothing prayer sets, reflect on the mysteries and miracles of God's life on earth. Find out more about these intimate prayers and mysterieshere. 


HOW TO PRAY WITH THE MAGNIFICAT ROSALET® BRACELET 


Ghirelli’s newest rosary, the Magnificat Rosalet®, revolutionizes the concept of an instrument tof prayer. The Magnificat Rosalet® is at once a beautiful rosary and jewel that can be worn on the wrist and then expanded to be used as a traditional rosary.


Blending together Faith and Design, the Magnificat Rosalet® provides the wearer with prayer beads to accompany them wherever they may be. In addition to the traditional prayers of the Rosary, the Magnificat Rosalet® can be used to bring peace and a calm spirit to whomever uses it. 


The images below depict how to use the Magnificat Rosalet® as a traditional rosary, but we also recommend using the prayer beads to meditate on the Serenity Prayer, the Litany of Trust, and/or the Divine Mercy Chaplet. You can find each of the mentioned prayers below. Or, you can simply move your fingers across the beads while reflecting on the many blessings God has given you or offering up a specific intention on each bead. 


 

THE SERENITY PRAYER


God, grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change,

the courage to change the things I can,

and the wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time,

enjoying one moment at a time;

accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;

taking, as Jesus did,

this sinful world as it is,

not as I would have it;

trusting that You will make all things right

if I surrender to Your will;

so that I may be reasonably happy in this life

and supremely happy with You forever in the next.


Amen.


THE LITANY OF TRUST 


From the belief that I have to earn Your love    Deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear that I am unlovable    Deliver me, Jesus.

From the false security that I have what it takes    Deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear that trusting You will leave me more destitute    Deliver me, Jesus.

From all suspicion of Your words and promises    Deliver me, Jesus.

From the rebellion against childlike dependency on You    Deliver me, Jesus.

From refusals and reluctances in accepting Your will    Deliver me, Jesus.

From anxiety about the future    Deliver me, Jesus.

From resentment or excessive preoccupation with the past    Deliver me, Jesus.

From restless self-seeking in the present moment    Deliver me, Jesus.

From disbelief in Your love and presence    Deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear of being asked to give more than I have    Deliver me, Jesus.

From the belief that my life has no meaning or worth    Deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear of what love demands    Deliver me, Jesus.

From discouragement    Deliver me, Jesus.

That You are continually holding me, sustaining me, loving me    Jesus, I trust in You

That Your love goes deeper than my sins and failings and transforms me    Jesus, I trust in You

That not knowing what tomorrow brings is an invitation to lean on You    Jesus, I trust in You

That You are with me in my suffering    Jesus, I trust in You

That my suffering, united to Your own, will bear fruit in this life and the next    Jesus, I trust in You

That You will not leave me orphan, that You are present in Your Church    Jesus, I trust in You

That Your plan is better than anything else    Jesus, I trust in You

That You always hear me and in Your goodness always respond to me    Jesus, I trust in You

That You give me the grace to accept forgiveness and to forgive others    Jesus, I trust in You

That You give me all the strength I need for what is asked    Jesus, I trust in You

That my life is a gift    Jesus, I trust in You

That You will teach me to trust You    Jesus, I trust in You

That You are my Lord and my God    Jesus, I trust in You

That I am Your beloved one    Jesus, I trust in You


THE DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET 

 

Make the Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Our Father

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.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst 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.

The Apostles’ Creed

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 Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead. I 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.

The Eternal Father

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
