The Rosary is made up of two prayers: mental and vocal prayer.
The mental prayer is the meditations of the mysteries of the life,
death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the Glory of His Mother.
Vocal prayer consists in saying...
On the Crucifix - The Apostles Creed
On the first bead - 1 Our Father
On the three following beads - 3 Hail Marys
End with a Glory Be.
We then announce and mediate on the first mystery while saying
1 Our Father, 10 Hail Mary's, 1 Glory Be
End the mystery with the Fatima Prayer
O My Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of Hell and lead all souls to Heaven,
especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy.

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope!
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears!
Turn, then, O most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this,
our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
