The Prayers of the Rosary
The Apostles Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen
The Our Father (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. Amen.
The Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
The Hail Holy Queen
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry out, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.Â Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

The following is Mirjana’s description of her annual birthday apparition:
Five days before my birthday, while in prayer, I found out that Our Lady would appear to me at 7:30 p.m. On that evening, many people gathered and we prayed. Exactly at 7:30 p.m. She appeared, this time not as sad as last year. You could say Her mood was normal. This time no light preceded Her as it did during the time of Her daily apparitions. She stayed for seven minutes. Upon leaving, the Heavens opened and I saw three angels waiting for Her. Only in August 1981 had I seen the angels waiting for Her like this after She had been with us.
On this occasion She did not speak to me about the secrets. During the apparition I prayed three "Our Fathers" with Her, one for non-believers, one for all those who needed it, and one for all the sick who were present. She then blessed all of us and all the holy objects that had been brought to Her. I also had a lot of questions to ask, given to me by others. For all those who asked something, She gave but one answer:
