This booklet... should be most useful for the many
Latin Mass communities whose members say the Rosary before or after Mass. Most such communities currently say the Rosary in
English, but with the help of this booklet, they can begin saying it in Latin, a practice that would provide a more meaningful
devotional setting for the traditional Latin Mass. In locations where these Masses are not infrequent, perhaps only once or
twice a month, reports of the regular public recitation of the Rosary in Latin by the congregation might get back to the presiding
bishop and persuade him to allow more frequent Latin Masses. Such reports would certainly do no harm and might even convince
the bishop that these people are really serious about the Latin Mass, not just attending for nostalgic reasons.
This booklet contains all Rosary prayers in both Latin and English, that is, the Sign of the
Cross (Signum Crucis), the Apostles Creed (Symbolum Apostolorum), the Our Father (Pater Noster),
the Hail Mary (Ave Maria), the Glory Be (Gloria Patri), and the Fatima Prayer (O Mi Jesu). It also
contains, in both languages, the name of each Mystery plus a Scripture reading for each (including the recently added and
entirely optional Luminous Mysteries, for anyone who might be interested in them). Thus it has everything a person needs to
say the Rosary in either language. It even has instructions on how to say the Rosary and how to make two types of Rosary Novenas.
Beyond those basics, it has many other prayers frequently said before or
after the Rosary, both languages: Salve Regina + the “trailer” prayers, Alma Redemptoris Mater
+ trailers, Regina Caeli + trailers, the BVM Litany of Loreto + trailers, the Memorare, and a few other
Latin Mass communities intending to begin saying the
Rosary together in Latin before or after their Latin Masses should inquire about the quantity discounts
for this booklet offered by the publisher.
