THE LIFE OF THE SANCTUARY
THE HOLY ROSARY
Make the sign of the cross:
In the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
One (1) Our Father...
Three (3) Hail Marys...
One (1) Glory be.
Start each Decade by meditating on the Mystery.
On the large bead say the Our Father.
On the ten small beads say ten Hail Marys.
Then recite the Glory Be.
At the end of every decade, recite the following:
O Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of hell, bring all souls to heaven, especially those who are in more need of your mercy.
SONNET TO THE VIRGIN MARY
[From a book called
« Speculum Christian!," printed by
Machlinia about 1483.]
Mary mother well thou be!
Mary mother think on me!
Maiden and mother was never none,
Together, lady, save thou alone!
Sweet lady, maiden clean,
Shield me from ill shame and tene,
And out of sin, lady,

And out of dette for charity.
Lady, for thy joys five,
Get me grace in this life,
To know and keep over all thing

And truly wynne all that I need
To me and mine clothe and feed.
Help me, lady, and all mine, Shield me, lady, from hell pyne ;Shield me, lady, from villainy, And from all wicked company, Shield me, lady, from all shame, And from all wicked fame.
Sweet lady, maiden mild,
From all fomen thou me schild,
That the fiend me not deere,
Sweet lady, thou me weere,
Both by day and by night,
Help me, lady, with all thy might.
For my friends I pray to thee,
That they may saved be,
To their souls and their life,
Lady, for thy joys five.
For my fomen I pray also,
That they may here so do, .
That they nor I in wrath die,
Sweet lady, I thee pray.
And they that be in deadly sin,
Let them never die therein,
But, sweet lady, thou them rede
For to amend their misdeed.
Sweet lady, for me thou pray to heaven king, That he me grant housel, shrift, and good ending, Jesu for his sweet grace
In the bliss of heaven also a place.
Lady, as I trust in thee,
This praydr that thou grant me,
And I shall, lady, here by life
Greet thee with Aves five,
Sweet lady, full of wynne,*
Full of grace and god within.
As thou art flower of all thy kin,
Dof my follies for to blin,
And shield [me] out of deadly sin
That I be never take therein,
And, noblest lady, grant me
That my soul for my sin ne damned be.
