The Dominican Rosary



Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee


Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus


O Lord, open my lips.


And my mouth shall proclaim Your praise.


O God, come to my assistance.


O Lord, make haste to help me.


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     Alleluia
