O God, Whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation; grant we beseech Thee, that meditating upon these mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain, and obtain what they promise.

Antiphon. – Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in battle array?

My soul ☩ doth magnify the Lord.
And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
Because He hath regarded the humility of His Handmaid: for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
For He that is mighty hath done great things to me, and holy is His name.
And His mercy is from generation unto generations to them that fear Him.
He hath showed might in His arm: He hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat: and hath exalted the humble.
He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich He hath sent empty away.
He hath received Israel His servant: being mindful of His mercy.
As He spoke to our fathers: to Abraham and to his seed for ever.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Antiphon. – Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in battle array.

O Lord Jesus Christ, our Mediator with the Father, Who hast been pleased to appoint the Most Blessed Virgin, Thy Mother, to be our Mother also, and our Mediatrix with Thee, mercifully grant that whosoever comes to Thee seeking Thy favours may rejoice to receive all of them through her. Amen.


In the name of the Father, etc.
We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not our prayers in our necessities, but ever deliver us from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

Confer O Lord, on us, who serve beneath the standard of Mary, that fullness of faith in Thee and trust in her, to which is given to conquer the world. Grant us a lively faith, animated by charity, which will enable us to perform all our actions from the motive of pure love of Thee, and ever to see Thee and serve Thee in our neighbour; a faith, firm and immovable as a rock, through which we shall rest tranquil and steadfast amid the crosses, toils and disappointments of life; a courageous faith which will inspire us to undertake and carry out without hesitation great things for God and for the salvation of souls; a faith which will be our Legion’s Pillar of Fire—to lead us forth united– to kindle everywhere the fires of Divine Love– to enlighten those who are in darkness and in the shadow of death—to inflame those who are lukewarm– to bring back life to those who are dead in sin; and which will guide our own feet in the Way of Peace, so that—the battle of life over– our Legion may reassemble, without the loss of any one, in the Kingdom of Thy Love and Glory. Amen.

May the souls of our departed Legionaries and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
