The Pro-Life Rosary

Pro-Life Rosary and Pro-Life Scriptural Rosary information

The Pro-Life Rosary has the same number of beads as an ordinary rosary, but the colors of the beads have a special symbolism as described below. By using this rosary you maintain the witness that is provides because all who see it know what you are praying for and were you stand on preserving the lives of unborn children. The Mysteries of the day: Joyful Mysteries, Monday and Saturday; Sorrowful Mysteries, Tuesday and Friday; Luminous Mysteries, Thursday; Glorious Mysteries, Wednesday and Sunday.

On The Crucifix say:
Lord, for all those who say "I don't believe," I say "I believe in God"...
Then continue with the Apostle's creed.

Offer the first Our Father, on the white or clear bead, for the intentions of our Holy Father the Pope.

The next three beads are purple to symbolize the Our Lord's Passion and Death

Say the following prayer before the three Hail Marys.
Lord, I offer these three Hail Marys for an increase in Faith, Hope, and Love in all people so that they will always CHOOSE LIFE, and I also offer them in reparation for the suffering You endure each time an unborn babe is killed, each time someone is euthanized, and each time death overcomes life in this world. Amen.

The First Decade (alternating aqua-bule and white or clear beads.
State the Mystery of the day and then say the following prayer:
Dear Lord, Dear Mother Mary, every aqua bead is special, for on it I pray a Hail Mary for the intentions of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and on every white (or clear) bead, I say a Hail Mary for Peace in our world. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us! Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us! Amen.
One Our Father and 10 Hail Marys.

The Second Decade (alternating red and clear/white beads)
State the Mystery of the day and then say the following prayer:
Jesus, Source of Mercy, Mary, Bearer of Mercy, on every red Hail Mary, I pray in reparation for the blood spilled from every baby wrenched from its mother's womb through abortion. I know that even as you hold and comfort each of these precious little ones, the horror of their slaughter screams for justice to be meted out upon our world. May these red Hail Marys be a source of reparation for our sins. I also offer each white (or clear) Hail Mary for the mothers and fathers of these aborted little ones, that they may receive the grace to repent of this sin, turn to Jesus, and receive the gift of salvation with open hearts. Heal them of the emotional and psychological wounds that this sin has caused as You pour out the graces of conversion upon them. Let them now witness for life! Amen.
One Our Father and 10 Hail Marys.

The Third Decade(alternating black and white or clear beads):
The black beads are symbolic for the entire medical profession that participates in pro-death activities: all doctors, nurses, assistants, and helpers of every type that contribute to abortion, euthanasia, and anti-life practices of every sort. Every white (or clear) Hail Mary is for their conversion, repentance, and courage in standing against this crimson tide of death!

State the Mystery of the day and then say the following prayer:
Lord Jesus, Mother Mary, in this decade I offer reparation for all the sins of the medical personnel that act in the interest of death in our society and in our world. I plead also for their conversion to your truth. Let them see the reality of what they are doing, see the horror of it, rend their hearts in repentance, then work for Life and for You, Jesus, all the rest of their days. Amen.
One Our Father and 10 Hail Marys

Fourth Decade (red, white or clear, and blue beads):
State the Mystery of the day and then say the following prayer:
Lord Jesus, Source of All Truth, Mary, Our Lady of all peoples, with every red Hail Mary I pray that every bad, anti-life law in our nation and world be reversed. With every white (or clear) Hail Mary I plead protection and strengthening of every pro-life law in existence, and with every blue Hail Mary I petition for new and strong pro-life laws to be enacted in our nation and in our world. Amen.
One Our Father and 10 Hail Marys

Fifth Decade (green and white or clear beads):
The color green is symbolic of hope. Our Hope is Jesus Christ and the Life in the Holy Spirit He offers to us if we but receive it. Because of our hope in Jesus we have faith that one day our hope for mercy justice, truth, peace, and life will be fully realized.

State the Mystery of the day and then say the following prayer:
Lord Jesus, I thank you for your incarnation in our human flesh. You were formed in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Your humanity at the moment of your conception gives us, each and everyone, humanity at the moment of your conception. Had Satan had his way, You too would have been torn from your mother's womb, never to be born, and never to fulfill your destiny in the particular manner in which you did fulfill it. On every green Hail Mary I thank you for those who in any way work for life. Give them continued courage, strength, peace of heart, and love. Protect them from all evil and increase their witness in this nation and in this world. Strengthen their families to understand the importance of their work and to support them in their stand for life.
Mother Mary, our mother, under the titles of Our Lady of Guadeloupe, Mother of Perpetual Help, Queen of Peace, join us in our intercession for the end of all pro-death, pro-choice activities, Crush the dead of evil in our nation, our world, and in our personal lives. Roll back the crimson holocaust. With every white ( or clear) Hail Mary of this decade advance the cause of your Divine Son, Jesus, the Incarnate Word! Stay the hand of chastisement, and if it must fall, protect your children. Amen
One Our Father and 10 Hail Marys
