An Explanation of Rosary Intentions

The Holy Rosary should always begin with stating a specific intention, or petition. We should always strive to pray for that which is beneficial for ours or someones elses salvation. People have different ways in which to offer the intention, often a few words are sufficient, as Our Lady truly knows what is in our hearts and what our most pressing needs are before we even ask. Ask with humility and confidence and you will never fail to obtain that which you ask for, if it be the will of God,

One should always offer the intention of the Holy Father as a general rule.

In addition, one may offer an intention for each of the mysteries. This is a powerful way to cover many things in the Holy Rosary recitation altogether. The suggestions are as follows for the traditional Rosary mysteries only. This list contains the days, fruit and (general intention), respectively.

    With Mother Mary, with the holy angels and the saints, and with all creation we come to praise you, to bless you, to thank you and to glorify your Holy Name.

    We pray for the Church, for the Cardinals, the bishops, the priests, religious and for the laity.

    We pray for the needs of the Church, for vocations to the religious life and to the Priesthood, we pray for the faithfulness and holiness of priests, for the conversion of sinners, for the dying, for all the dead.

    We pray for the poor souls in Purgatory, specially for the ones in our families and for all the faithful departed.

    Have Mercy on them O Lord.

    We also pray for ourselves; that you grant us Peace in our hearts, our families and we pray for Peace in the whole world.

    Lord send your Holy Spirit to renew the face of the earth, to destroy evil and darkness, sin and death, immorality, corruption, violence, hatred and impurity.

    Lord Jesus, on your crucified body you took upon yourself the punishment that is due for our sins, you endured our sufferings and the consequences of sin: sickness and death. So we ask you to forgive us and to heal us by the Power of your most holy wounds, by the merits of your holy passion, agony and death, by the merits of the sorrows of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    Lord hear us.
