On the Medal:

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mystical Rose, make intercession for our Holy Church, protect the sovereign Pontiff, help all those who invoke you in their necessities, and since you are the ever Virgin Mary and Mother of the true God, obtain for us from your most Holy Son the grace of keeping our faith, of sweet hope in the midst of the bitterness of life, of burning charity, and the precious gift of final perseverance. Amen.

On the first bead: Our Father

On the next four beads: Hail Mary on each bead in honour of her four apparitions to Saint Juan Diego.

Glory Be... after the fourth.

First Apparition: Our Lady of Guadalupe appears to Saint Juan Diego. Our Lady requests a temple in her honour.

Meditation: Our Lady of Guadalupe, my Queen and my Mother, I thank you for your first apparition to Saint Juan Diego when you revealed that you are the Most Pure Virgin, Mary Mother of the True God and Mother of all mankind. I thank you for requesting a temple to be built where you stood, to bear witness to your love, your compassion, your aid and your protection for all who would love you, trust you, and invoke your help.
Second Apparition: Our Lady of Guadalupe gives Saint Juan Diego encouragement after his return from the Bishop's house.

Meditation: Our Lady of Guadalupe, my Queen and my Mother, I thank you for your second apparition to Saint Juan Diego when, upon his return from the Bishop's house, he knelt in humiliation and defeat before you since he was unable to accomplish your mission. I thank you for the courage and encouragement you gave to Saint Juan Diego to make a second appeal to the Bishop.

Pray: Our Father, three Hail Mary's, one Glory Be.

Third Apparition: Our Lady of Guadalupe promises a sign to Saint Juan Diego for the Bishop.

Meditation: Mother, I thank you for your third apparition to Saint Juan Diego when, after this unsuccessful attempt to have a temple built, you said to him, "So be it, son. Return tomorrow in order that you may secure for the Bishop the sign for which he has asked. When this is in your possession, he will believe you; he will no longer doubt your word and suspect your good faith. Be assured that I shall reward you for all that you have undergone."

Pray: Our Father, three Hail Mary's, Glory Be.
Fourth Apparition: Our Lady of Guadalupe fulfills her promise by showing herself on the tilma of Saint Juan Diego.

Meditation: Our Lady of Guadalupe, my Queen and my Mother, I thank you for your fourth apparition to Saint Juan Diego when you ordered him to pick the roses he would find on the summit of the hill and bring them to you. I thank you for arranging them in his tilma when you said, "This cluster of roses is the sign that you shall take to the Bishop. You are to tell him, in my name, that in this he will recognize my will and that he must fulfill it. You will be my ambassador, wholly worthy of my confidence. Only in the presence of the Bishop shall you unfold your mantle and disclose that which you carry." I thank you for your image printed on the tilma which appeared when the roses were released.

Pray: Our Father, three Hail Mary's, Glory Be.

Closing Prayer: Remember, O most gracious Virgin of Guadalupe, that in thy celestial apparition on the Mount of Tepeyac, thou didst promise to show thy compassion and pity towards all who, loving and trusting thee, seek thy help and call upon thee in their necessities and afflictions; also to hearken to our supplications, to dry our tears and to give us consolation and relief. Inspired with this confidence we come before thy august presence, certain that thou wilt deign to fulfill thy merciful promises. We are full of hope that, standing beneath thy protection nothing will trouble or afflict us. Thou has desired to remain with us through thy admirable image, thou who art our Mother, our health and our life.

O Mary, Mother of God, hear our petitions and in thy mercy answer us. Amen.
