St Ives

This simple set of prayers blends two important aspects of Christian piety: worship of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament and devotion to the Our Lady, the Mother of God. Both the Rosary and Exposition lend themselves to a contemplative style of prayer allowing us to meditate on the mysteries of our salvation and open our hearts to Jesus present in the Eucharist and present to bless us.  In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen. An introductory prayer may be said, followed by The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth: and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried: he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
One Our Father, three Hail Marys and a Gloria are then said  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.
 Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

 Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
 Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; (Music)

 as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.

Each mystery may be followed by a short reading, and then by ONE Our Father, TEN Hail Marys, ONE Gloria. Other prayers may also be said in addition to these.
