Rosarium Christus Rex Infernus

Open with – the Sign of the Cross

On the Crucifix-

My Sovereign Saviour Jesus Christ, Son of the living God! Thou who for the salvation of all mankind didst suffer the death of the Cross; Thou who, before being abandoned to Thine enemies, by an impulse of ineffable love didst institute the Sacrament of thy Body; Thou who hast vouchsafed to us miserable creatures the privilege of making daily commemoration thereof; do Thou deign unto thine unworthy servant, thus holding thy Living Body in his hands, all strength and ability for the profitable application of that power with which he has been entrusted against the horde of rebellious spirits. Thou art their true God, and if they tremble at the utterance of Thy Name, upon that Holy Name will I call, crying Jesus Christ! Jesus, be Thou my help, now and for ever! Amen.

On the grouped beads – Immolated Lamb, be Thou a pillar of strength against the demons! Slain Lamb, give power over the Powers of Darkness! Immolated Lamb, grant favour and strength unto the binding of the Rebellious Spirits. So be it.

On the lone beads – Recite the ‘Offering of the Precious Blood’ followed by one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be

Offering of the Precious Blood

Eternal Father! we offer Thee the most Precious Blood of Jesus, shed for us with such great love and bitter pain from His Right Hand; and through the merits and the efficacy of that Blood, we entreat thy Divine Majesty to grant us Thy Holy benediction, in order that we may be defended thereby from all our enemies, and be set free from every ill; whilst we say, “Benedictio Dei omnipotentis, Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti, descendat super nos, et maneat semper. Amen.”

Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be

(Indulgence of 100 days, Pope Leo XII, Oct. 25, 1825)

Closing Prayer

O Jesus, who dost live in Mary, come and live in Thy servants, in the spirit of Thine own holiness, in the fullness of Thy power, in the reality of Thy virtues, in the perfection of Thy ways, in the communion of Thy mysteries, – have Thou dominion over every adverse power, in Thine own Spirit, to the glory of Thy Father. Amen.

(Indulgence of 300 days – Pope Pius IX, Oct. 14, 1859)

Act Of Thanksgiving

Praise, honour, glory, and blessing be unto Him who sitteth upon the throne, who liveth for ever and ever. Amen.
