If you’re new to the Rosary, you will find yourself immersed in a wonderful new experience!
The rosary is a devotion which combines the repetition of prayers with meditation on certain events in the life of Our Lord and His Blessed Mother. This devotion takes its name from the Latin rosarium, a garden of roses, or a wreath of the same beautiful and symbolic flowers; or, according to some, more directly from the title “Mystical Rose,” given to Mary in her Litany.
The spiritual benefits of the rosary are very numerous, and are different in some respects from those granted to other devotions. They are attached directly to the beads themselves, and are gained by anyone properly using the beads so blessed.
The rosary is counted on beads which are arranged in decades, that is, in groups of ten small beads separated by a larger bead. The complete rosary consists of fifteen decades, but most rosary beads in use comprise only five decades. Find how to pray the Holy Rosary on the Rosary Bay website, or get the “Rosary Warfare” book, which contains numerous ways of praying the Rosary with many beautiful colored pictures of stained glass windows to inspire you. This book will be a great help for anyone wanting to meditate well upon the mysteries of the Rosary whether privately, with family or parish.
“Don’t be ashamed to recite the rosary alone, while going to school, to university or to work, along the street and on public transportation.” ~ Pope John Paul II.
