Fifth Glorious Mystery - Mary's Coronation

The Fifth Glorious Mystery - Mary's Coronation – While Holy Church Tradition teaches, and the Liturgy confirms, that Our Lord crowned Mary Queen of Heaven and of earth, there is no narrative of this event in Scipture. An appropriate scripture passage for this mystery is from the book of Revelation, chapter 12, verse 1.

A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars".

"Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death". (Article 966 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church).

While meditating on the mystery of the Coronation, pray also for the release of its fruit, devotion to Mary.

After a short period of silence, recite the following prayers:

While holding the next (large) bead, pray the 'Lord's Prayer' :

Our Father, who art in Heaven,
hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done
on earth, as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil, Amen.

On the next bead, pray the 'Hail Mary' :
Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee!
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Holy Mary, mother of God,
pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Repeat the 'Hail Mary' 9 more times, while moving along each remaining bead in the group of ten (the 'decade').

Next, pray the 'Gloria Patri' :
   See rosaries with added 'Glory Be' & 'Fatima' beads!

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit!
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end, Amen.

Next, pray the 'Fatima Prayer' :   See rosaries with added 'Glory Be' & 'Fatima' beads!
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 Thy mercy, Amen.
