The Rosary of the Father

The "Rosary of the Father" in its five mysteries is a prayer that Providence has given us. Spontaneous collaboration from all sides has enriched it with biblical references and litanies.
It contains the history of man guided by the Love of God who – from the beginning of creation to His final redemption – has accomplished and will accomplish His plan of Life.
This rosary is a sign of the times, of these times that are witnessing the return of Jesus on earth "with great power" (Matthew 24:30). “Power” is the Father’s attribute par excellence ("I believe in God the Father Almighty"); it is the Father who comes through Jesus, and we must urge Him to hasten the times of the new creation eagerly awaited (Roman, 8:19).
The Rosary of the Father helps us to reflect on His mercy, which "is more powerful than evil, more powerful than sin and death" (Dives in Misericordia, VIII, 15). It reminds us that mankind can and must become an instrument of the triumph of Love of the Father, by giving its "yes" to Him in fullness and thus entering into the circle of Trinitarian Love that makes it "the living glory of God"; it teaches us to live the mystery of suffering which is a great gift because it gives us the possibility to bear witness to our Love for the Father and to allow Him to bear witness to Himself, by descending among us.
We now introduce this Rosary officially, with the approval given by the Archbishop of Foggia, Mons. Giuseppe Casale, on 23 November 1988.
However, we mustn’t replace the Rosary of Mary with the Rosary of the Father; instead, after reciting the entire Marian Rosary of 20 mysteries, we must ask our Mother to recite the Rosary of the Father with us. She will do it and will invoke our Heavenly Father with us. He will not be able to resist our call and hers; He will come through Jesus and make "new heavens and a new earth" (Rev. 21).

How do we pray it?

Begin with the Sign of the Cross
O God come to my assistance.
Lord, make haste to help me.
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.

My good Father, I offer myself to Thee.
Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here, ever this day, be at my side to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.

The “mystery” is announced at the beginning of each decade, for example, in the first mystery: "the Triumph of the Father in the garden of Eden when, after the sin of Adam and Eve, He promises the coming of the Lord.”
After a brief meditation, pray 1 Hail Mary, 10 Our Father's, and a Glory be. At the end of each decade of the Rosary repeat the two prayers: “My good Father...”,  “Angel of God…”.
At the end of the Rosary pray the Litany of the Father and the prayer "Father I abandon myself into Your hands"-


In the first Mystery
we contemplate the Triumph of the Father in the garden of Eden when, after the sin of Adam and Eve, He promises the coming of the Lord. (1 Hail Mary, 10 Our Father's, and a Glory be. “My good Father...”,  “Angel of God…”.)

“The LordGod said to the serpent: Because you have done this, you shall be banned from all the animals and from all the wild creatures; On your belly shall you crawl, and dirt shall you eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and hers; She will strike at your head, while you strike at Her heel.
To the woman He said: I will multiply your pangs in childbearing, in sorrow shall you bring forth children…

In the second mystery
we contemplate the triumph of the Father at the moment of the “Fiat” of Mary during the Annunciation.

“The Angel said to Mary: “Do not fear Mary. You have found favour with God. You shall conceive and bear a son and give Him the name of Jesus. Great will be His dignity and He will be called the Son of the Most High; the Lord God will give Him the throne of David His Father. He will rule over the house of Jacob forever and His reign will be without end” more>>



In the third mystery we contemplate the triumph of the Father in the garden of Getsemani when He gives all His power to the Son.

“Then Jesus came with them to a place called Getsemani, and said to His disciples: “Sit here while I go over there and pray”. And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be grieved and distressed. Then He said to them: “My soul is sorrowful unto death, remain here and keep watch with Me”. And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying: “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me, yet not My will but Yours be done! more>>


In the fourth mystery we contemplate the triumph of the Father at the moment of every particular judgement.

But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ But the father said to his slaves, ‘Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet; and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and celebrate; for this son of mine was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found..... more>>


In the fifth mystery we contemplate the triumph of the Father at the moment of final judgement.

" I heard a loud voice from the throne cry out: "This is God's dwelling among men. He shall dwell with them and they shall be His people and He shall be their God who is always with them. He shall wipe every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain, for the former world has passed away."more>>

Holy Queen .... one Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory to... for the Pope.

Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me,
and in all Your creatures -
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into your hands I commend my soul;

for I love you Lord,
and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands,
without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
For you are my Father.

(Charles de Foucauld)
