Here are the intentions, BEACHGIRL: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messagebo
and here are the other prayers we say:
The prayers that we say at the beginning and end of the rosary:
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
First 27 Days of the 54-Day Rosary Novena, 11 March 2012 - 06 April 2012 - GOOD FRIDAY (Novena of Petition)
Our dearest Mother Mary, behold us, your children at Catholic Critters of Sparkpeople, in prayer at your feet. Accept this Holy Rosary, which we offer you in accordance with your requests at Fatima, as proof of our tender love for you, for the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in atonement for the offenses committed against your Immaculate Heart, and for these special favours which we earnestly request in our Rosary Novena (Mention our intentions):
Second 27 Days of 54-Day Rosary Novena, 07 April (HOLY SATURDAY) 2012 - 03 May 2012 (Novena of Thanksgiving):
Dear Jesus, through the intercession of our Blessed Mother, the Virgin Mary, Queen of the Most Holy rosary, enter our hearts as we meditate on the mysteries of your life in thanksgiving for the granting of Catholic Critters' prayer requests, some of which has been answered, some of which are still awaiting your plan... (mention our intentions)
Blessed Mother, we beg you to present our petitions (prayers of thanksgiving) to your Divine Son. If you will pray for us, we cannot be refused. We know, dearest Mother, that you want us to seek God's Holy Will concerning our requests. If what we ask for should not be granted, pray that we may receive that which will be of greater benefit to our soul.
We offer you this spiritual bouquet of Roses because we love you. We put all our confidence in you, since your prayers before God are most powerful. For the greater glory of God and for the sake of Jesus, your loving Son, hear and grant our prayers. Sweet Heart of Mary, be our salvation.
Here we pray the mystery of the day:
Day 01 = 01 January = Joyful Mystery
Day 02 = 02 January = Luminous Mystery
Day 03 = 03 January = Sorrowful Mystery
Day 04 = 04 January = Glorious Mystery
...repeat the sequence J-L-S-G...
After the Rosary:
Hail Holy Queen...
Let us pray,
O God, whose only Begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation. Grant, we beseech thee, that meditating upon the mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise through the same Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto thee O Virgin of virgins, our mother, to thee we come, before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us at Catholic Critters. Amen.
The Magnificat (The Divine Office)
My soul glorifies the Lord,
My spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour.
He looks forth on His servant in her lowliness;
Henceforth, all ages will call me blessed.
The Almighty works marvels for me.
Holy His Name!
His mercy is from age to age,
On those who fear Him.
He puts forth His arm in strength
And scatters the proud-hearted.
He casts the mighty from their thrones and raises the lowly.
He fills the starving with good things, sends the rich away empty.
He protects Israel, His servant,
Remembering His mercy,
The mercy promised to our fathers,
To Abraham and his descendants for ever.
We can also add the Litany of The Blessed Virgin Mary, if we wish. www.ewtn.com/faith/teachings/maryd6f.htm

The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
