PRAYING THE ROSARY

 

Praying the Rosary is a daily spiritual staple for many Catholics. This link provides information on the various mysteries - complete with videos and scripture references - as well as printer friendly resources in both Spanish and English to assist anyone with a desire to learn how to pray the Rosary. This is a great teaching tool for catechists.

 

 

The traditional Rosary is divided into three parts, with each having five mysteries: Glorious, Joyful and Sorrowful. In his apostolic letter The Rosary of the Virgin Mary, Pope John Paul II proposed a new set of mysteries which focus on the public life of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. These are referred to as Luminous mysteries.
