The Glorious Mysteries     

The Resurrection of the Lord     

Christ is Risen! By his Resurrection, He has destroyed the power of death, and therefore the power of abortion. The outcome of the battle for Life has already been decided: Life is victorious! Let us pray that all prolifers will spread this victory to every segment of our society.

It is truly Jesus risen from the dead: he shows the wounds in his hands, his feet, his side. Gradually men must come to recognise his love. He died for each one. He would have died for only one. Such is the value of the tiniest babe.

Our Father   

Hail Mary (say ten times)

Glory Be   

Fatima Prayer   

Let us Pray:

Jesus of Nazareth, Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, who died on Good Friday and rose on Easter Sunday, spent nine months in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and thereby told us of the valus of the tiniest babe. Forgive us our trespasses against the little ones. Amen

The Ascension of Jesus into Heaven     

By ascending to the Father's throne, Christ takes our human nature, given to us in the womb, to the heights of heaven. He shows us that human beings are made to be raised to heaven, not thrown in the garbage. Let us pray that the world may learn this truth and reject abortion.

The time has come for Jesus to take his seat at his Father's right. A crowd assembles on the mountain. We learn that we are not to be left alone. Jesus will be with us till the end of time. His Spirit will come and strengthen and enlighten, so that we shall be the light of the world.

Our Father   

Hail Mary (say ten times)

Glory Be   

Fatima Prayer   

Let us Pray:

How dark the world is today. It cannot see the beauty of such lovely children. Jesus, help us hold them to the light. Amen.

The Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles and Our Lady     

The Holy Spirit is the Advocate: He pleads our cause, for we cannot save ourselves. We pray that He will make us advocates for the babies, who cannot speak or write or vote or protest or even pray.

The Apostles gathered in the upper room. They had their message, but could not yet act on it. They must await further power from on high. It was the Spirit who drove them into the streets to proclaim their risen Lord.

Our Father   

Hail Mary (say ten times)

Glory Be   

Fatima Prayer   

Let us Pray:

Lord, like the Apostles, the pro-life work-force of today can do nothing alone. Send us the abundant gifts of your Spirit. Amen

The Assumptionof Our Blessed Lady      

The Blessed Virgin Mary was taken body and soul into heaven because she is the Mother of God. Mother and child are united. The Assumption reminds us that they belong together. We pray that society will see that it cannot love women while killing their children, and cannot save children without helping their mothers. We pray that people will be touched by the pro-life question, "Why can't we love them both?"

We praise God for raising his mother to heaven, sharing with her the first fruits of his resurrection. Now she prays for us, and he is sure to listen.

Our Father   

Hail Mary (say ten times)

Glory Be   

Fatima Prayer   

Let us Pray:

Mary, pray for your children that all may live in peace and love. May simple love conquer the modern ethic of expedience, with its demarcation line between valuable and disposable people. May all pass through natural death to the resurrection. May all have the opportunity to work out their own salvation. Amen

The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth     

Mary is the Queen of the Universe. The Church teaches that she is the greatest creature, second only to God Himself. The Church defends the dignity of women. We pray that people will understand that to be pro-life means to be pro-woman, and that to be pro-woman demands that we be pro-life.

We honour the Queen, mother of the King, closest collaborator in the work of our redemption. We honour the saints who have completed their earthly pilgrimage, and we seek the help of all their prayers.

Our Father   

Hail Mary (say ten times)

Glory Be   

Fatima Prayer   

Let us Pray:

Mary, we trust that all the infants executed before birth are safely with you, enjoying the vision of God. They were not baptised with water, but neither were the Holy Innocents. Tell your Son that they are all martyrs of the modern Herods. Amen
