Ecumenical Miracle Rosary


A) How to pray
Make sure to reference Prayers and Miracles descriptions
which follow, and full bead by bead instructions on the back of
this brochure.

1. The Ecumenical Miracle Rosary is prayed using regular
rosary beads. 

2. Starting at the crucifix, recite the Nicene Creed.

3. On the first large bead, recite the Lord’s Prayer.

4. On each of the next three small beads recite The Greatest

5. Recite the Great Commission on the next large bead.

6. Recall the first Rosary Miracle and recite the Lord’s Prayer
on the medal (it usually has a picture of Jesus or the Virgin
Mary on it). The Miraculous Healings are meditated on every
Monday and every Thursday, and on the Sundays from the first
Advent Sunday until the Sunday before Ash Wednesday. The
Miraculous Acts are meditated on every Tuesday and every
Friday, and on the Sundays between Ash Wednesday and
Palm Sunday. The Miraculous Appearances are meditated on
every Wednesday and every Saturday, and on the Sundays
from Easter until the Sunday before the first Advent Sunday.

7. On each of the adjacent ten small beads (also referred to as
a decade) recite the Greatest Commandment while reflecting
on the miracle. If praying the Ecumenical Miracle Rosary for
the first time, it is advisable to read the scripture verses of
each miracle carefully.

8. On the next large bead, recite the Great Commission. Start
on the next decade by reflecting on the next miracle and
praying the Lord’s Prayer on the same large bead as the last
Great Commission was prayed. Then pray ten Greatest
Commandments on each of the next 10 small beads, and
complete the decade by praying the Great Commission on the
next large bead. Each of the succeeding 3 decades are prayed
in a similar manner.

9. After five decades are prayed, the rosary is complete.

10. Finish by praying the Jesus Prayer on the medal.

B. Prayers
These are the prayers included in the Ecumenical Miracle

1)  The Nicene Creed
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of
heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from
Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one
Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For
us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the
power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin
Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified
under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the
third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he
ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the
Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the
dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who
proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and
the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through
the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the
world to come. Amen.

2)  Lord's Prayer
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.
For thine is the kingdom and the power
And the glory forever and ever. Amen.

3)  The Greatest Commandment
Sweet Jesus, I love you with all my heart and all my soul.
Help me to serve my family, and everyone else I meet today.
(This prayer attempts to capture what is written in scripture
concerning Jesus' Greatest Commandment. It can be found
in Matthew 22:34-40.)

4)  The Great Commission
Oh my lord, I know that you are always with me, help me to
obey your commandments. And lead me to share my faith with
others, so that they may know you and love you.
(This prayer attempts to capture what is written in scripture
concerning the Great Commission. It can be found in Matthew

5)  The Jesus Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God; have mercy upon me, a sinner.
