1.  Devotional Prayer to Our Lady of the Holy Rosary

Holy Mary, at the sound of your voice, Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and the baby in her womb leapt for joy.  Visit us as you visited the home of Elizabeth.  During our earthly pilgrimage towards Godís kingdom, may we magnify the Lord whose greatness endures from age to age, who lifts up the lowly, fills the starving with good things, and comes to the help of His servants.

Our Lady of the Rosary, Our Mother, first disciple of your Son Jesus, intercede for us in our most earnest request, (mention your intentions).

May we, in turn, heed your unceasing call to do whatever your son tells us to do.  With your powerful intercession, we believe that what is most difficult can be done, what we have overlooked, you cannot miss, what is meaningless, bitter, or painful can be transformed into fulfillment, gratitude, and joy.  Amen.

Final Petitions

A.   Dear Queen of the Holy Rosary

We gather as one people who celebrate a battle fought and won; a vow made and fulfilled; a time remembered and kept alive; love received and returned; your patronage sought and thanked for; God praised, God adored.

Mahal naming Ina.  As our lips move in whispered prayers, our hands over beads, our knees bend, our eyes look up to you, we plead for your mercy, your grace, your love.

B.   O Mother of Peace,

Give birth to God in our hearts.  Give birth to Peace in our world.  Give birth to the world who heals all strife, conquers sin with love, overcomes death, brings us life!  As once you interceded for the victory of faith in these islands, pray for us, now, in our struggle for truth and justice, for peace and love of Christ.

C.   O Queen of the Philippines.

In your loving hands, you hold Jesus, our God, our King, our Savior.  You hold Him for us to adore and serve, to love and find salvation in.  O Mother and Queen, our hearts may be small, but our love is enormous.  And we ask you to come and take your place in us, in the company of your beloved Son; to bless us with your abiding presence; to fill us and keep us in your love and protection; to lead us in the eternal Fiat and Magnificat to God, in whose name we gather.  Amen.
