Praying the Rosary 101

The Rosary is a deeply cherished prayer, and is probably the most popular devotion in the Catholic Church.   This devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary is intended for everyone, no matter their situation, or vocation in life.   Whether rich or poor, educated or uneducated, religious or laity, all can benefit from the grace offered through the recitation of this prayer.

How to Start:

The Rosary can be characterized as a prayer of  peace, with its comforting repetitiveness, and meditation, and the intimate relationship with Scripture and the life of Christ that it draws us towards.   You can read about the history of the rosary here:  History of the Rosary.  If you are new to the rosary and would like to get  started, please visit our How to Pray the Rosary and Mysteries of the Rosary pages for a step by step guide to praying the rosary

Share the rosary with others:

  5. You have to insert the code onto your blog or website in HTML mode. You are inserting the code into a visual editor, and the editor is trying to just display the code.
