How to Pray the Rosary in Latin

How to Pray the Latin Rosary:

Step-by-Step Guide with Translation + Audio

Here are Latin versions (most with audio snippets) of all component prayers of the Most Holy Rosary, including all Joyful, Sorrowful & Glorious Mystery announcements. Most long vowels are indicated with macron symbols ( ´ ) and this page should be used in conjunction with the previous post How to Pray in Latin, which gives word by word translations, so to assist with a better understanding of what is actually being prayed, and some very basic explanations and directions about Latin.

It is assumed that you know how to pray the Rosary. Shame on you if you do not.

The Fatima Prayer is included and it should be understood that as this is not a traditional liturgical prayer, there are numerous renderings from the original Portuguese. A good discussion can be found on FishEaters.com and it is worthwhile noting the remark of one poster: “but … Our Lady wanted the much more personal/intimate ‘O my Jesus’ to be said as opposed to the rather formal/official ‘O Lord Jesus’.”

Also included in the closest recognised Latin equivalent of “O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine, all praise and all thanksgiving be every moment Thine!” and an invocation to St. Joseph, which this poster adds at the conclusion of every decade; and, of course, the St.Michael Prayer which should be prayed always.

If this seems all too difficult, consider that if you can memorise the Ave Maria alone, over 70 per cent of your Rosary will be in Latin. Adding the Gloria Patri adds a further 10 per cent.

All audio snippets taken from Boston-Catholic-Journal.com, where CD & MP3 recordings can be ordered or downloaded for free.

ascéndit ad cáelos:
sédet ad déxteram Déi Pátris omnipoténtis:
índe ventúrus est iudicáre vívos et mórtuos.
