A Marian Rosary for Episcopalians

This is a great way I found of praying with Anglican rosary! I recommend starting with the cross, then the invitatory bead, then the first cruciform, praying through the weeks (I recommend going around the circle two or three times), then exiting by praying the Concluding Prayer on the first cruciform bead, then the invitatory bead, and finally ending on the cross.

A Marian Rosary for Episcopalians

On the cross:

V. O God, make speed to save us.
R. O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning is now, and will be forever. Amen.

The Invitatory:  The Collect (BCP 243)

God, you have taken to yourself the blessed Virgin Mary, mother of your incarnate Son: Grant that we, who have been redeemed by his blood, may share with her the glory of your eternal kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Cruciform 1:
V. The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived by the power of Holy Spirit.

Cruciform 2:
V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done unto me according to your Word.

Cruciform 3:
V. And the Word was made flesh.
R. And dwelt among us.

Cruciform 4:
V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

On the weeks: The Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

(on the last time through)

Concluding Prayer (on the first cruciform bead):
Pour forth, we beseech thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the incarnation of Christ Thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His resurrection; through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Invitatory:  The Collect (BCP 243)

God, you have taken to yourself the blessed Virgin Mary, mother of your incarnate Son: Grant that we, who have been redeemed by his blood, may share with her the glory of your eternal kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

On the Cross:
V. I bless the Lord (or “Let us bless the Lord” in a group setting)
R. Thanks be to God
