Introduction to the Dominican Rosary
Dominicans say the rosary according to an ancient custom which is slightly different from the way most Catholics say it.
The leader and group begin the Rosary with the sign of the cross. Then they lead and respond alternately the parts for the opening prayers.
The leader announces the title of each Mystery (and may give a short mediation), then is joined by one half the group in starting each of the prayers for the first, third and fifth mysteries. The second group responds to conclude prayers.
After the leader announces the titles of the second and fourth Mysteries, the second group leads, and the first responds.
At each concluding prayer, the leader and the whole group alternate the responses as indicated.
ALL: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
LEADER: Hail Mary, full of Grace the Lord is with thee.
ALL: Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
LEADER: O Lord open my lips.
ALL: And my mouth will proclaim your praise.
LEADER: O God, come to my assistance.
ALL: O Lord, come to my aid.
LEADER: Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
ALL: As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, a world without end Amen .
Alleluia. (or in Lent, Praise be to you, Lord, King of eternal glory.)
