All our Rosaries commence with the Archangel Michael prayer.
Simply; to protect the prayers and intentions of the Holy Rosary.
It is the spiritual weapon and the opponents knows it!
We also follow Pope Francis I call of Sept 30, 2018.
Pope Francis invited all to pray at the conclusion of the Rosary with that most ancient invocation to the Holy Mother of God, “Sub Tuum Praesidium”
as well as the traditional prayer to St. Michael ascribed to Pope Leo the XIII."
1) We also follow the great tradition learning of how Cardinal Leo Burke and Bishop Athanasius Schneider prays the Rosary in Latin.
2) Our Step-by-Step Rosary is designed to add some prayers right before the Rosary commence.
It also follow the way of the pearls to lead us to the Cross, our Sign of Salvation.
How our Step-by-Step version of the Holy Rosary works
Useful information about how our Step-by-Step version of the Holy Rosary is structured to allow the users to grow in their religious life.
The struction of the Step-by-Step Rosary is that you can start and end where you decide to.
We have a few recommended "pre-prayers" as well as "end-prayers" . The Rosary itself is untouched.
It takes some time to get used to.
Once you have used it, understand the structure,
we are sure you will find the depth, the joy, the strength and the love praying the Rosary.
The Holy Rosary is the perfect wreath.
Let the Pearls lead you through the prayers. From the Crucifix and the Sign of the Cross through Credo, followed by the mystery of Pater Noster, the words given to us by Jesus Christ. Then comes the mystery of the Angelic salutation and the Holy Ghost's salutation via Elisabeth and Saint John the Baptist. Added are the three Divine virtues when praying the Ave Maria at each cluster Pearl. Then, the mystery of Trinity is presented to us via Gloria Patri closes the mysteries.
We are supposed to meditate, or simplier put, think of the mystery presented to us from the scripture while we are praying the mysteries of Pater noster, Ave Maria and Gloria. At the same time, the repetetive prayers may put us closer to meditation, where we are not thinking, just praying - as we are to avoid praying like a mechanic repetition.
Our Lady of Fatima requested us to pray the Rosary daily and one of the five prayers given to the children was the one known as the "Fatima prayer". She told us that we are to invocate "after each mystery: O my Jesus...".
The Step-by-Step Rosary gives the user an opportunity to read the recommended mystery, of the scripture, then comes the Pater Noster, Ave Maria and Gloria Patri followed by the Fatima prayer.
When the pearls are leading you through the prayers, you are soon back to the connecting medallion. The medallion connects our intentions and prayers .
It is here where we follow Cardinal Burke and Bishop Schneider as both of them pray the Salve Regina at the medallion, followed by the final prayer.
This was new for us, as we sang the Marian hymn Salve Regina and then prayed the final prayers. The Marian hymns follow its own season and can be sung at the end of the Rosary.
The Step-by-Step Rosary allows the pearls to lead us through the prayers and back to the Cross, the sign of our Salvation. It is constructed to allow the user to pray from the medallion to the Cross and on the Cross we also pray for our shepherds and Holy Father.
On Sept 30, 2018, Pope Francis requested his flock to pray Sub Tuum and the prayer to Archangel St. Michael at the end of the Rosary. We have implemented those prayers too in our Step-by-Step format.
The Holy Rosary, the perfect wreath, is closed through the Marian hymn.
A PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN, "HELP OF CHRISTIANS."
Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God and our Mother, Mary,
thou seest how, from every quarter, the devil and the world are assailing the Catholic faith,
in which we purpose, by God's mercy, to live and to die, that we may gain eternal glory.
O Help of Christians,
renew thy former victories for the safety of thy children.
They intrust to thy care their firm purpose never to belong to any gathering of heretics or sectaries;
O thou who art all holy, offer up our resolutions to thy divine Son,
and obtain from him the graces necessary to keep us true to them unto the end.
Console the visible Head of the Church,
help the Catholic Episcopate,
protect the clergy and the faithful who hail thee as Queen,
hasten, by the power of thy intercession,
the day which shall see all nations gathered together about the Supreme Pastor.
Maria, Auxilium Christianorum, ora pro nobis.

PRAY THE ROSARY, DAILY!
This is the request of Our Lady of Fatima in 1917
(recite the Rosary every day to our Lady of the Rosary to obtain peace in the world and the end of the war)
This is the request of Our Lady in Akita in 1973.
(Each day recite the prayer of the Rosary. With the Rosary pray for the Pope, bishops and the priests.
The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church...
the priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres, ... churches and altars sacked)
This is the request of Our Lady in Akita in October 2019...
a few days after our Pope broke the first commandment at the Amazon Synod,
introducing, blessing and presiding indignous idols.
(“Put on ashes and pray a repentant rosary every day. ... and make sacrifice every day.”)
