The Rosary of the Seven Joys

(Franciscan 1422)

Seventy-two Ave Marias are said for each of the Blessed Virgin's earthly years.

  1. The Immaculate Virgin Mary joyfully conceived Jesus by the Holy Ghost.
  2. The Immaculate Virgin Mary joyfully carried Jesus when she visited Elizabeth.
  3. The Immaculate Virgin Mary joyfully brought Jesus into the world.
  4. The Immaculate Virgin Mary joyfully exhibited Jesus to the adoration of the Magi.
  5. The Immaculate Virgin Mary joyfully found Jesus in the Temple.
  6. The Immaculate Virgin Mary joyfully beheld Jesus after his resurrection.
  7. The Immaculate Virgin Mary joyfully received by Jesus into heaven, and crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth.

At each mystery, say:
Pater Noster
Ave Maria ×10

Conclude with Ave Maria ×2.

Roman Catholics say an additional Pater noster and Ave Maria for the intentions of the Pope in order to gain the associated indulgence.
