+ First Joyful Mystery of the Rosary: The Annunciation

Begin with the Our Father.
Read each verse, then say the Hail Mary.
At the end of the decade, say the Glory Be.

Optionally, finish with the Fatima Prayer below.

1 The angel Gabriel was sent by God to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.

2 The angel came to her and said, “Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you.”

3 She was greatly troubled by his words and wondered in her heart what this salutation could mean.

4 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God.

5 Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you will name him Jesus.

6 He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David.

7 Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?”

8 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.”

9 “Therefore, the child to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God.”

10 Then Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord. Let it be done to me according to your word.”

The Fatima Prayer: O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy.
