Praying the Rosary

The rosary is a common, Catholic form of prayer that requires much meditation.
Though often thought to be devoted entirely to Mary, the rosary is actually
a meditation on the life of Jesus through the eyes of his loving mother, Mary. The entire rosary is a prayer of Jesus’s life.
It is another type of devotional where the one who prays the rosary reflects
on the Mysteries of our Redemption through Jesus Christ.

  1. Hi, your website is informative. I am curious as to why the rosary was made in such a way that we pray to Mary 10 times before we get to pray to God. I will appreciate it if you can help me make sense of it.

    1. The Rosary is about jesus’ life thru Mother Mary’s eyes. She watched her child in agony. As a mother of 5, and I was raised on the Catholic faith, the Rosary male perfect sense.

  2. Your website is awesome!!!! I am in the process of developing one of my own. I would appreciate your input. Would you mind if I put a link to your website on mine?
