What Is The Breviary Prayer Origin?

Thank you for your informative site. I came here while searching for the origins of the "Invocation," which you refer to as the "Breviary Prayer," and I see that it is indeed in that style.

However, when I searched for it in my own Breviary I could not find it. I have the 4 volume set of The Divine Office/Liturgy of the Hours, published by the Catholic Book Publishing Company, copyright 1975. I do not find it there under the October 7th Feast of the Holy Rosary listing (Vol. IV), nor is it among the prayers in the Common of the Blessed Virgin.

Was it present in an earlier edition?

Added to a later edition?

What can you tell me that would shed some light on the use of this prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours?

Clearly it was written specifically for the rosary; I am trying to get an understanding of the origin, and perhaps authorship, of the prayer. Thank you for your help.

1961 Roman Breviary
by: The Rosary Team

Thank you for your question. I don't have immediate access to a 1961 Roman Breviary, but I am pretty sure the prayer is included in the first and last vespers as well as the lauds for the feast of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary on October 7th.

I did confirm that the prayer is prayed during the collect for that same day in my 1962 Roman Missal (Tridentine Rite). Since I am unable to answer definitively this sort of question, I suggest you contact the people at . Perhaps Fr. Augustine Thompson would be a good person to get in touch with as he is a Dominican and they have been entrusted with preserving the Most Holy Rosary. You can find his email address on that website.

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
