As those who have been following our site know, Pope Francis has called for all to pray the Rosary every day during the month of October, as well as the Prayer to St. Michael and the Sub Tuum Praesidium. For those who would like to join in this prayer with the Holy Father but might be a little out of practice with praying the rosary, I’ve laid out a few printable resources that can assist you if you’ve forgotten.

Additionally, the Sub Tuum prayer, while quite similar to the second half of the commonly recited “Hail Holy Queen” Prayer, isn’t familiar to many Catholics. So I wanted to provide that as well.

The first is an 8.5 x 11″ guide with all the prayers and mysteries of the Rosary (including the St. Michael prayer and the Sub Tuum).

Click HERE to view, download, and print it. It is in PDF format.

The second resource contains two resources that you can print out, cut, and then fold into your wallet. One contains the Sub Tuum and St. Michael Prayer, and the other is a list of the mysteries of the rosary (along with the days of the week that they should be prayed).

The wallet-sized resources are HERE.

Nothing flashy, but hopefully useful!

    All of this developed doctrine loses sight of the only High Priest intercessor between the Father and us, the man Christ Jesus, who has direct access to the Father.
    The book of Hebrews says: “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.[4:14-16]”
    Jesus “is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.[7:25]”
    “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) [10:19-23]”
    I don’t see how we can improve on this. It’s best to stay close to Scripture in matters pertaining to our salvation.

      I don’t understand what you mean. A call to pray the Rosary involves the profession of faith and meditation on the Scriptures, all with the purpose of drawing closer to Christ and doing God’s will. Where would one lose sight?

      • Peter Aiello says:

        In Scripture, Jesus Christ is presented as the only meaningful intercessor and mediator of all graces.
        In Catholic culture, it is not the same.

        • Mike Lewis says:

          But did Christ not establish a Church and set his apostles and their successors to guide it, guaranteeing the protection of the Holy Spirit? Obviously throughout the history of the Church, there have been different expressions of spirituality that have sprung up — some were deemed useful and were encouraged by the successors to the apostles. The prayer of the Rosary is among these, having borne much spiritual fruit over centuries. Devotion to Mary as the Mother of God is a well-established Christian principle. We don’t worship her, but we recognize her role in salvation history, with the title “Theotokos” being officially approved since the Council of Ephesus in the 5th century.

          • Peter Aiello says:

            Mary, as the mother of God, is well established in Christianity. The extent of the devotion to her is not. In all of the NT epistles, she is only mentioned once when Paul refers to Jesus as born of a woman.

          • Mike Lewis says:

            It’s well established by the tradition.

          • Peter Aiello says:

            Vatican II, in Dei Verbum 21 says: “Therefore, like the Christian religion itself, all the preaching of the Church must be nourished and regulated by Sacred Scripture.”
            Hopefully, tradition pays attention to this.

      Peter Alelio,

      Mary & the Eucharist is what separates the Catholic from the bible alone believers.

      Satan & his demons understand better the power of the Theotokos over them better than you do, why?

      Ask Fr.Gabrielle Amorth & Fr.Francisco Bamonte this Exorcist has a lot to tell you of their personal encounters
      with the demons.

      Fr.Bamonte recorded the demons cannot look at the Blessed image of Mary.

      Fr.Amorth famous words is;

      “Anyone who goes to Mary and pray the rosary cannot be touch by satan”.

      The thousands of Saints attested in the power of Mary.

      If I used the Gift of Prudence whom will I believe the Church together with Popes, Saints & Doctor of the Church
      all affirmed the role & power of Mary over satan over your own interpretation?

      • Peter Aiello says:

        There is an interesting quote from Vatican II’s Dei Verbum 8 which states: “This tradition which comes from the Apostles develop in the Church with the help of the Holy Spirit. (5) For there is a growth in the understanding of the realities and the words which have been handed down. This happens through the contemplation and study made by believers, who treasure these things in their hearts (see Luke, 2:19, 51) through a penetrating understanding of the spiritual realities which they experience, and through the preaching of those who have received through episcopal succession the sure gift of truth”.
        The spiritual realities that I experienced, which changed my life, came from the instruction in the Bible. The Bible presents the spirituality and power of the Holy Spirit. This is where I learned of acquiring inner peace and strength. The Bible does not emphasize the Eucharistic and Marian spiritualities which developed later in the Church and which I grew up with. This is why I pay lots of attention to what is in the Bible.
        Vatican II, in Dei Verbum 21 says: “Therefore, like the Christian religion itself, all the preaching of the Church must be nourished and regulated by Sacred Scripture.” The Church recognizes the unique place and importance of Scripture. I’m glad that V2 states it so clearly.
