St. Louis de Montfort tells us:
“Take great care to avoid the pitfalls that most people fall into during the Rosary...the danger of not asking for any graces at all, so that if some people were asked their Rosary intention, they would not know what to say. So, whenever you say your Rosary, be sure to ask for some special grace.”
by Joseph Cain
For that grace which the Blessed Virgin Mary asks for me. For the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for world peace. For the Collegial Consecration of Russia to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart, full revelation of the Third Secret, universal institution of the Five First Saturdays, for Father Gruner, for the Fatima Apostolate, for Our Lady’s benefactors, for Our Lady’s workers, for all the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The Annunciation: Humility and the grace to be satisfied and content with my state in life.
The Visitation: Fraternal charity and the grace of a happy and kindly disposition.

For that grace which the Blessed Virgin Mary asks for me. For the Pope, for his spiritual, physical, mental health and well being; for his spiritual enlightenment concerning Fatima, concerning Tradition. The same intentions for the next Pope; the same intentions for the Pope, whoever is the one, who will consecrate Russia. For that grace which the Blessed Virgin Mary asks for me. For an increase in love for Mary.
The Agony in the Garden: Contrition for my sins and the grace to forgive others.

The Crucifixion: The spirit of offering up small sacrifices daily, in thanksgiving for Christ’s redemptive Crucifixion He suffered for our sins.
For that grace which the Blessed Virgin Mary asks for me. For all those who have asked for my prayers, said I would pray for, should pray for, all those who have no one to pray for them. (Then follows any special people to be prayed for by name).
The Resurrection: The grace of a lively faith, love for God and zeal in His service.
The Ascension: The grace of a great longing for Heaven, my true home and the grace of the Virtue of Hope.
