Regina Sanctissimi Rosarii: 6 Things All Catholics Should Know About the Rosary

“To them Mary is an almost infinite treasury, an inexhaustible abyss of these gifts, to such an extent that she was never subject to the curse and was, together with her Son, the only partaker of perpetual benediction.” Ineffabilis Deus, Pope Pius IX

The Annunciation

Through the study of books one seeks God; by meditation one finds him.“~St. Padre Pio

Aula Paolo VI hall in the Vatican, March 10th, 2007.

1. All Catholics Should Pray the Rosary

Why pray the Most Holy Rosary? The answer is actually quite simple: It is the request of the all Power Virgin Queen and Mother, Mary. However, one cannot truly call themselves a Roman Catholic if one does not write an entire volume explaining why.

2. The Woman-Made Psalter

The Most Holy Rosary is simply the Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary. When our most August Queen Mum appeared to St. Dominic in the 13th century she gave him specific instructions on how to pray Her Psalter. Today when one says they “pray the Rosary” they often mean just a third of Her Psalter, for the Most Holy Rosary consists of all 15 Mysteries. The Rosary isn’t a “man made” prayer as most Protestants and even heretical Catholics claim. In fact, it is woman made, the Holy Theotokos Herself revealed this glorious and most perfect prayer.

3. The Mediatrix of All Grace

The will of the Blessed Virgin is completely conformed to that of Her Son, in other word – God. She is the most humble and chaste spouse of the Holy Ghost and will never do anything contrary to the will of God. Thus, we ought to trust the Blessed Mother just as God has, because She ultimately brings us to God. Mary is our Salvation, and Christ is the source of our Salvation. Mary is the Gate and Christ is the Key. It is only through Her that we are saved. God has so graced Her from the moment of conception to do His most perfect will and because of this He has entrusted Her to be the Mediatrix of ALL grace. In other words; all earthly blessings pass through the very hands of the Virgin Queen.

“Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much. You can never love her more than Jesus did.” Saint Maximilian Kolbe

4. Origin of the Rosary

There are many arguments of how the Rosary came to be. There are various accounts, but what the Church has declared is simple: She appeared to St. Dominic with beads and the instructions… of course over time it has organically developed into what it is today. How do we know the Blessed Mother hasn’t an issue of how Her Psalter has developed? Well, Her most recent apparition in Fatima states that she wants the Rosary to be prayed as it has been prayed for several centuries but to add a prayer:

Oh mi Jesu, dimitte nobis debita nostra, libera nos ab igne inferni, conduc in caelum omnes animas, praesertim illas quae maxime indigent misericordia tua. Amen.

5. A Weapon Against Both Heresy & Danger

Many non-Catholics view the Rosary as a mindless babbling, that is due to ignorance. Little do the they know that it is a meditation on the lives of Mary and Jesus: ad Iuesm per Mariam. The Rosary since it’s beginning has been a weapon against both heresy and danger! Various Saints such as St. Louis Marie de Montfort, St. Padre Pio, and various Pontiffs would completely agree.

6. The Queen and Her Army

“Give me an army saying the Rosary and I will conquer the world.”~Blessed Pope Pius IX.

Notice this beatified Pope said “army” with the “Rosary” and then mentioning that they shall “conquer”…odd statement to make, being that it takes weapons and skill to win war, however Our Heavenly Queen is far more powerful and witty than any of our lowly plots, etc. She alone experienced the Beatific Vision here on Earth imagine the power she now has as Queen of all things seen and unseen?1 The entire court of  Angels and Archangels as well as the Saints? And of course, God will never deny His Mother anything!

  1. Mary and the Beatific Vision: She as a creature was alone in this grace – “Therefore, far above all the angels and all the saints so wondrously did God endow her with the abundance of all heavenly gifts poured from the treasury of his divinity that this mother, ever absolutely free of all stain of sin, all fair and perfect, would possess that fullness of holy innocence and sanctity than which, under God, one cannot even imagine anything greater, and which, outside of God, no mind can succeed in comprehending fully.”

    “To them Mary is an almost infinite treasury, an inexhaustible abyss of these gifts, to such an extent that she was never subject to the curse and was, together with her Son, the only partaker of perpetual benediction.” Ineffabilis Deus, Pope Pius IX []

  • “The Rosary, or Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary, is one of the most excellent prayers to the Mother of God. Thus, ‘the Roman Pontiffs have repeatedly exhorted the faithful to the frequent recitation of this biblically inspired prayer which is centred on contemplation of the salvific events of Christ’s life, and their close association with the his Virgin Mother. The value and efficacy of this prayer have often been attested by saintly Bishops and those advanced in holiness of life’…Its use is expressly recommended in the formation and spiritual life of clerics and religious”

    “‘In recommending the value and beauty of the Rosary to the faithful, care should be taken to avoid discrediting other forms of prayer, or of overlooking the existence of a diversity of other Marian chaplets which have also been approved by the Church’. It is also important to avoid inculcating a sense of guilt in those who do not habitually recite the Rosary: ‘The Rosary is an excellent prayer, in regard to which, however, the faithful should feel free to recite it, in virtue of its inherent beauty'”

    (quotes from the Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy)

    • linet nekesa

      Acording to the bible, there is only one mediator who is Jesus, nobody else. We have to pray to jesus who is our lord

  • Thank you for sharing these points, which are often overlooked. Especially the Pope Pius comment (“Give me an army saying the Rosary and I will conquer the world.”). I think the whole “trust” thing is out the window today. If we could trust in God, and in Mary, don’t you believe life would be much clearer?


  • Doug

    This was a good read. Living in a world that’s so on edge, its reassuring to know that praying the Rosary helps us focus on truth.

  • tom

    After reading this I am going to learn to Say the Rosary and say it on a regular basis.

  • Andrea Walker

    Just a quick question/note: Isn’t the rosary 20 mysteries – I only ask as this part of the article was right next to a picture of Bl Pope John Paul II who brought us the Luminous? I always wonder about that – is doing just the three original sets of mysteries the full rosary, or all 4, or does it depend on if you are conservative, traditional, NO, etc that it even matters? I’ve heard that 3 is the number to do a day per Fatima, and other sources, but those are all pre-Luminous mystery sources. It gets real confusing with that 4th set in there. I have only been Catholic for about 2-3 years (this Easter will be my third) so sorry if this seems like a silly question

    • F Morant

      No. The Rosary has 15 Mysteries
      Only. The so called “luminous”
      Were just fabrication by JP2.

    • Byzcat

      The rosary is 15 mysteries. Pope John Paul II added 5 mysteries (Luminous), but this was a departure from the original form of the rosary. Originally it was the “poor man’s psalter”, with 150 Hail Marys representing the 150 psalms that the monks prayed during their daily office. There is no requirement to say the Luminous mysteries. Personally, I do not say them as part of the rosary as a personal preference.

  • Brad

    It is fascinating to read the accounts of Marian apparitions, I’m thinking especially at Fatima, wherein our Lady abstains from reciting the Ave Maria portions of the rosary with the person(s) who are praying. Her immaculate humility prevents her from petitioning herself, of course, as well as her common sense. But her immaculate humility causes her to join in the other portions of the rosary that address the Holy Trinity. I get an uncanny feeling just thinking about it. She really exists. Heaven is real and is filled with the divine, angelic, and human beings we are told fill it. But we are so wounded by the fall and then our own sins that we find it very hard to believe. Oh, what a relief to one day see the reality of Love. May God allow us into his heaven and prevent us from turning away in shame at that moment.

    I would also like to add about our Lady that her Assumed flesh, real flesh, is in heaven right now — heaven, the realm of spirit. In this way she is the same as our Lord. Both hearts are real, human, fleshly, hearts, made subtle. This is what awaits us.

  • tom

    “Oh mi Jesu, dimitte nobis debita nostra, libera nos ab igne inferni, conduc in caelum omnes animas, praesertim illas quae maxime indigent misericordia tua. Amen.”

    But waht does this translate to?

  • Carlos Urbina

    Tom it translates to: “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, especially those most need of thy mercy. Amen.”

    Andrea Walker- The Virgin Mary gave specific instruction to St. Dominic on how to pray the Rosary. For various centuries this only included the Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries. In short, these three Mysteries of the lives of Jesus and Mary include the Most Holy Rosary. If a Catholic considers themselves to be a traditionalist, conservative, or Novus Ordo Catholic is completely irrelevant to the mission of Our Lady. Blessed John Paul II in his encyclical merely suggested the Luminous Mysteries. Most modern Catholic prayer books make it quite clear that the Luminous Mysteries are optional as well. It was never the will of Blessed John Paul II to make the Luminious Mysteries a norm. The entire Rosary would include the praying of all 15 Mysteries of Our Lady at once, but today we’ve grown accustomed to only praying a set of Mysteries which Our Lady has approved of in Fatima. Many Catholic who desire to pray the Luminous Mysteries separate from the Psalter that Our Lady intended.

    God love you.

    • Bob

      Skipped a part there.

      “Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of thy mercy. Amen”

  • tjpf

    To Andrea: The original Rosary Mysteries were Joyful (5), Sorrowful (5), and Glorious (5) to be said Mon,Tues and Wed, repeat the cycle Thurs-Sat, and Glorious on Sunday. Also, during Advent, Chrismastide, until Lent Joyful were said on Sunday, during Lent the Sorrowful said on Sunday.

    The additional five Luminous Mysteries were added optionally by HH JPII to be said on Thursdays in lieu of the Joyful Mysteries.

    To Tom: The Fatima Prayer. O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls into heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy.

    Hope this helps.

  • Liz Bell

    Mary, Mother whom we bless. Full of grace and tenderness. Save us from the devil’s power and greet us at our dying hour. Amen.

    • Frank Solis

      I haven’t heard/seen this before, but I love it! Copy/pasted it into my notes on my mobile. Thank you & God bless!

  • Paul Doiron

    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
    I’m 47 years old and I never prayed the Rosary but went to church
    every week since I was born. I went to a church mission during Lent
    a few years ago and listened to Father Patrick Martin. It was an
    excellent mission retreat. He said that he said a Rosary before his feet hit the floor in the morning. I thought that was nice but not something that I would probably do. Well I thought about it and started praying
    the Rosary and have’nt stopped. I try to pray it daily and I can say it
    has helped me immensely in my faith. Try it, you won’t be sorry.
    God Bless

  • Monica

    Since he last presidential election I started saying a daily Rosary. My prayers began as a commitment for abortion to end in our world. This commitment remains for the rest of my life, yet I have been given the gift of divine love through this prayer. Pray the Rosary daily and you will be blessed beyond all of your expectations.

  • Larry

    I used to say the rosary all day every day. Then, one day I decided to insert the word God in the place of Mary and change some of the prayers addressed to Mary and insert prayers to God. I’ll never go back. No prayers are required to Mary at all. There is no sin. Not praying to God and being an athiest, that is a sin.

    • F Morant

      You say you’ve taken ouit the Name of Mary, and adding yoir own prayers…than you’re not really praying the Rosary, are you? The first part of the Hail Mary in Biblical. I’m sad for you that you have to change it. As a blogger quite rightly said, it’s the devil making you remove the name of Mary because he hates our Lady so mnuch. Please get back to praying the Rosary the way it should be said.

    • I’m sorry, Larry, but that doesn’t work: “Hail, God, full of grace. The Lord is with Thee. Blessed art Thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy God, mother of God, pray for us sinners, now & at the hour of our death. Amen.” Besides the fact that the angel Gabriel and Elizabeth spoke these words to Mary in the first half of the prayer, God was not His own mother. Mary was. Finally, why would we ask God to pray for us? Who will He pray to?

      Jesus came to us through Mary. The most perfect way for us to go to Jesus is through Mary.

      We honor Mary because Jesus did. It is His commandment: honor they father and thy mother. Jesus gave us Mary as our mother at the cross. But she is also our mother because we have been baptized into the body of Christ. As part of the body of Christ, His mother is also my mother. And she is your mother, too, assuming you’ve been baptized into the body of Christ.

      The peace of Christ be with you. Pray the rosary for our country. The attacks against life, liberty, and religion are increasing.

  • lisag

    Praying the Rosary has deepened my understanding of my faith and the life of Jesus and Mary. Larry do you think that the devil has influenced you to eliminate Mary from the Rosary? You know he hates the Hail Mary because of her immaculate state. She will crush the head of the serpent. You may think the prayer is better without our Mother, but that is your human, sinful, nature.

  • I urge everyone to read True Devotion to Mary by Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort. What an eye-opener! Wonderful book.

  • mortimerzilch

    Where has Mary been declared the Mediatrix of all grace? Where. If Pope John Paul II declined to declare Mary the Mediatrix of all grace, why do you??? More Catholic than the Pope?

  • Carlos Urbina


    The Blessed Virgin Mary is indeed the Mediatrix of all grace. The Church has believed so from Her beginning. The fact that a Roman Pontiff has yet to declare something does not make it false. The role of the Supreme Pontiff is to protect Sacred Tradition, etc. All Catholics must not only submit themselves to Sacred Tradition but adhere to it.

    The texts of Leo XIII, Adiutricem populi, St. Pius X, Ad diem illum, Pius XI, Miserentissimus Redemptor, and Pius XII, Radiomessage to Fatima go to show that the Church believes Mary to be the Mediatrix of all grace. All of these Pontiffs used the same beliefs of the Apostolic Fathers before hand, this is what it means to be Catholic. Even the Second Vatican Council in Lumen gentium calls Mary the Mediatrix. Mary under the title of: “Our Lady of Grace” shows us, that all heavenly graces pass through Her sacred hands. Another example would be, Mary’s Immaculate Conception. If one reads the writings of the Early Church, one can see that the Fathers believed that Mary was immaculately conceived and it was a belief throughout the Church universal, but the Dogma was not “declared” until 1854. Let alone the fact that in Lourdes, Our Lady appeared and declared Herself to be so before the proclamation of the Dogma.

    Lastly, regardless of hierarchical rank, no one soul is more Catholic than the next…at least in the Church triumphant.

    per Mariam ad Jesum.

  • Carlos Urbina

    Roman Pontiffs on Mary as Mediatrix:

    1. “God has committed to her the treasury of all good things, in order that everyone may know that through her are obtained every hope, every grace, and all salvation. For this is his will, that we obtain everything through Mary.” (Pius IX: Encycl., Ubi primum, February 2, 1849.) — [p. 12, number 12]

    2. “O Virgin most holy, none abounds in the knowledge of God except through thee; none, O Mother of God, obtains salvation except through thee, none receives a gift from the throne of mercy except through thee.” (Leo XIII: Encycl., Adiutricem populi, September 5, 1895.) — [p. 12, no. 13]

    3. “With equal truth it may be said that of the great treasury of all graces given to us by Our Lord—for grace and truth came by Jesus Christ—nothing comes to us except through Mary’s mediation, for such is God’s Will. Thus, as no man goes to the Father but by the Son, so no one goes to Christ except through his mother.” (Leo XIII, Encycl., Octobri mense, September 22, 1891.) — [pp. 13,14, no. 19]

    4. “If it is impossible to separate what God has united, it is also certain that you cannot find Jesus except with Mary and through Mary.” (St. Pius X: Allocution to the Franciscans, November 12, 1910.) — [p. 14, no. 20]

    5. “Every day, as the Church herself recommends, priests will recite the Holy Rosary, which, by proposing for our meditation the mysteries of the Redeemer, leads us to Jesus through Mary.” (Pius XII: Exhortation, Menti nostri, September 23, 1950) — [p. 14, no. 23]

    6. “As the various mysteries present themselves one after another in the formula of the Rosary, for the meditation and contemplation of men’s minds, they also make clear what we owe to Mary for our reconciliation and salvation.” (Leo XIII: Encycl., Fidentum Piumque, September 20, 1896.) [pp. 15,16, no. 29]

    7. “God has committed to the Blessed Virgin Mary the treasury of all good things in order that everyone may know that through her are obtained every hope, every grace and all salvation.” (Pius IX: Encycl., Ubi primum, February 2, 1894) — [p. 18, no. 38]

    8. “All our hope do we repose in the Most Blessed Virgin, in the all-fair and immaculate one who has crushed the most cruel serpent’s poisonous head and brought salvation to the world.” (Pius IX: Apost. Const., Ineffabilis Deus, December 8, 1854.) — [p. 18, no. 39]

    9. “O Holy Mother of God; to thee we lift our prayers for thou, powerful and merciful, art the Mediatrix of our salvation.” (Leo XIII: Encycl., Jucunda semper, September 8, 1894.) — [p. 19, no. 43]

    10. “None, O Mother of God, obtains salvation except through thee, none receives a gift from the throne of mercy except through thee.” (Leo XIII: Adiutricem populi, September 5, 1895) — [p. 19, no. 44]

    11. “Whenever we speak of Mary or speak to her, let us not forget that she is really our Mother, for through her we received divine life. She gave us Jesus himself, the source of grace. Mary is a Mediatrix and Dispenser of Graces.” (Pius XII: Radio message to the Italian Catholic Action, December 8, 1953) — [p. 22, no. 59]

    12. “Since Mary is ‘Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope,’ let us cry to her, ‘mourning and weeping in the vale of tears,’ and place ourselves and all that is ours confidently under her patronage.” (Pius XII: Mediator Dei, November 20, 1947.) — [p. 25, no. 71]

    13. “The Catholic Church has always and with justice put all her hope and trust in the Mother of God.” (Leo XIII: Encyclical, Supreme Apostolatus, September 1, 1883.) — [p. 32, no. 104]

    14. “According to the common teaching of the Doctors, it was God’s design that the Blessed Virgin Mary, apparently absent from the public life of Jesus, should assist him when he was dying nailed to the Cross. Mary suffered and as it were, nearly died with her suffering Son; for the salvation of mankind she renounced her mother’s rights and, as far as it depended on her, offered her Son to placate divine justice; so we may well say that she with Christ redeemed mankind.” (Benedict XV: Letter, Inter sodalicia, May 22, 1918.) [p. 35; no. 119]

    15. “She it was who, immune from all sin, personal or inherited, and ever more closely united with her Son, offered him on Golgotha to the Eternal Father….” (Pius XII: Encyclical, Mystical corporis, June 29, 1943.) [p. 37; no. 128.]

    16. “… it is evident that she cannot do other than help most devotedly her dearest adopted sons at an hour at which it is necessary to secure for them salvation and sanctity for all eternity.” (Benedict XV: Letter, Inter sodalicia, May 22, 1918.) [p. 46; no. 171]

    17. “… It was before the eyes of Mary that the divine sacrifice for which she had borne and nurtured the Victim was to be finished. … In the miracle of love, so that she might receive us as her sons ….” (Leo XIII: Encyclical, Jucunda semper, September 8, 1894.) [p. 50; no.187]

    18. “Mary is all powerful with her divine Son who grants all graces to mankind through her …” (Benedict XV: Encyclical, Fausto appetente die, June 29, 1921.) [p. 59; no. 244]

    19. “From whom can we expect the salvation of the Christian people today if not from her of whom it is written that whosoever shall find her shall find life and shall have salvation from the Lord?” (Pius XI: Letter, Cum valde, Februrary 20, 1929.) [p. 59; no. 245]

  • I do not deny anything about the Rosary or Psalter of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, but ¿was really Saint Dominic of Guzmán who received the Rosary from the Holy Theotokos?. Scientific history proofs otherwise. The used of bead for praying in very old in Christianity and was used in the Eastern Church for the recital of the Jesus Prayer using the komboskini. There was use of a string of pebbles known as the paternosters way back before Saint Dominic. Furthermore, Saint Dominic never wrote about the Rosary in his writings.
    Saint Dominic of Bavaria is the one who gets accountable for what we know as the Rosary today and Alan de Rupe who shaped it into fifteen mysteries. We have to realized that there were other Rosaries in existence when the “Saint Dominic’s” Rosary took preponderance. That is the Seraphic Rosary, the Brigittine beads, the Dolour beads, the Immaculate Conception beads, the Crown of Our Saviour, the Chaplet of the Five Wounds, the Crosier beads, the Seven Sorrows, among others that were shaped by the time the Holy Rosary came into existence.
    The Hail Mary does not come from Saint Dominic of Guzmán either. It was recited since the beginning of Christianity with different variations. It can be found in the Malankara Church of India and the Ethiopian Coptic Church since the evangelization of these people. It is found within the Nestorian Churches and Monophysite Churches, which are not really monophysites.
    Does the “whole” Catholic Church hast to recite the Rosary? No, it cannot be imposed on the eastern tradition where it was not customary. The Eastern Church in communion with Rome has heaps of prayers to the Theotokos which are more meaningful to them that is the Rosary and if one does not recite the Rosary does not mean our dearest Theotokos less loved.

  • Sister Lucia stated that the prayer that most blessed Theotokos wanted to be added at the end of each mystery was a somehow different from the one that came into existence and was finally approved by the hierarchy of the Church.
    When she was asked which one she prayed, she answered: in my private meditations I pray the one the holy Mother of God taught us, i.e.
    “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, and help those in most need. Amen.”
    When in community I most follow what the Church mandates. I pray as the hierarchy has commanded. I must comply with my vow of obedience.
    I read that she was asked about what Blessed John Paul II has taught about hell and how it complies with “ the fires of hell” of the Theotokos. The “fires of hell” is what were to come to humankind, to the Church, to the faithful, to the children of God, in the following years. Apostasy is at the door of the Church and the children of God must be lead to heaven through the fires of hell of this World and the most needed must be helped to prevent them to fall into these fires. I reckon she refers to drug abuse and addiction, pornography, homosexuality, lesbianism, lack of faith and all in all hopelessness and despair.
    One of the most precious prayer to the Mother of God in the eastern tradition is the AKÁTHISTOS, a praise hymn to the most holy Theotokos.

  • I went over the book about the apparition of the most blessed Theotokos in Fatima and the prayer goes:
    O Jesus, forgive us, saves us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to heavens and help those in most need. Amen.
    This is a free translation because that book is not in English

  • I perfectly understand your point related to the Most Holy Rosary. It is a request from the Holy Theotokos at Fatima. But is it the only praise to the most pure Theotokos? No! I could estate with the same authority that the Holy Theotokos asked to pray the Akathistos.

    Why do Latin Catholics do not pray it if it was also a request from the Most Holy Theotokos? There is only one Holy Catholic Church whose head is the Holy Father Benedict the XVI who happens to be the Bishop of Rome. I do not understand why Latin Catholics (“Roman Catholics”) -I do not like to be called “Roman” Catholic”- are so bias towards the Latin Rite. Roman Catholics forget that there are Greek Catholics, Melkite Catholics, Coptic Catholics, Chaldean Catholics, Maronite Catholics, etc. each one with their own Rite and traditions and all in COMMUNION with the Holy Father in Rome.

    I do believe that the request in Fatima to recite the Rosary was for the Latin Rite, and the Akathistos for the Eastern Catholics in communion with the Holy Father or Orthodox Christians in communion with the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople. I personally like to pray the Holy Rosary.

  • julie

    I think some of these explanations are way to theological! Just pray the Rosary period. Sometimes all these complicated theological statements just serve to confuse and become to acedemic and intellectual. Keep it simple, like the Blessed Mother is and pray people.

  • Gio

    3. The Mediatrix of All Graces: “Mary is our Salvation, and Christ is the source of our Salvation”

    I’m sorry, but isn’t Mary the dawn/advent of our Salvation, and Christ the source of, and Salvation Itself (not Mary)? If she is the gate, and it’s through her that we are saved, then that simply means she is not “our Salvation,” but rather the Medium through which we attain it (or in other words, as mentioned above, The Mediatrix of All Graces).

    If I’m the one who made a mistake, whether in our Church’s teachings about the matter or my interpretation of your statement, please do correct me.


  • anne

    I just wanted to comment on no.3 as it doesn’t say anywhere in the bible that mary is our salvation. Yes Mary gave birth to Jesus however God says no-one can come to me accept through Jesus. When we accept him as our Lord and saviour that is when you are saved. God didnt say go through mary to have the promises that he gave us through the death of Jesus Christ. She had an important role but our focus has to be on the perfect sacrifice that we have through jesus.

    • mayra

      Amen….jesus is the way the truth and one comes to the father but by Me JESUS;-) and the only prayer that is biblical is The lords prayer….jesus never said to pray the rosary…we need to listen what jesus says not” FATIMA”

  • This is very educative literature. Please be posting on my website

  • mayra

    Jesus never said to pray the rosary….he said to pray the lords prayer…we need to obey what jesus says not ” Fatima”

  • Mary is not our salvation, she’s the mother of God, and as a child clings to his mother, we cling to Mary knowing that she loves us and
    wants always us all to be close to her son Jesus. What better way than praying the mysteries of Christs life and death. When asked how to pray, Jesus gives us the Our Father, he certainly did not say, this is the only prayer you can say to me. The Our Father however, is said several times in the Rosary. The Rosary strikes the head of Satan.

    The rosary has been my light in darkness it’s a sure weapon against sin and the devil. It has taught me wisdom, purity, love, humility and perseverance praying the rosary daily is a great thing I love to accomplish daily.

  • Denise Izzo

    I’m looking for a website that sells a book:praying the rosary for non-catholics. Can you help me find these prayer books. Thank you.

  • Leo Angelo

    I admit, I do not pray the Luminous Mysteries. But it does not mean that I am against Saint John Paul II or the Luminous Mysteries. I love Pope John Paul II. But he just suggests (not mandates) us to pray it.

    The Blessed Virgin Mary’s apparitions (especially in Fatima) said we must pray the FIFTEEN MYSTERIES of the Holy Rosary.
