How to pray the rosary
The Rosary is a devotion that can be used for many purposes, such as personal devotions, praying for others, and promoting peace. The best way to pray the rosary is by using a method called “the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary.” This method helps you to focus on each prayer by providing a specific set of prayers for each day of the rosary.
To begin, choose five short phrases from the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary (e.g., “O Gloriously Brilliant One!” or “Blessed are You among women, O Mary”). These phrases can be used as anchors for your prayers throughout the day.
Next, start by praying the Our Father. After saying the words of Christ, say these three associated prayers: Hail Mary, Glory Be to Thee, and God Bless Us All.
Then recite one decade of the Rosary: 10 Hail MARYs; 100 Glory Be To Thee My Mother; 1 000 God Bless Us All; 10 000 More Holy ROSaries Please; and finally 1000 A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.
After reciting each decade, pause and contemplate what you have said before continuing with your next prayer. It is important to take time between prayers to reflect on what you have learned and pray for strength in your faith.
Each phrase in the Little Office corresponds with a different set of mysteries in the life of
The Divine Mercy Chaplet
The Divine Mercy Chaplet is a Catholic prayer consisting of fifteen chaplets that are said on the rosary. It was founded by St. Margaret Mary Alacoque in 1673 and has been used to help bring peace to the heart and soul. The first chaplet, called “Jesus, I trust in You,” helps us accept God’s mercy and forgiveness. The other fourteen chaplets are prayers for different needs or situations that we may find ourselves in. For example, the sixth chaplet, entitled “When You were stolen from Me,” helps us understand how Jesus felt when He was taken from us. The Divine Mercy Chaplet is said on every day of the Rosary except Friday night and Saturday morning, which are days of rest.
The Our Father
The Our Father, or the Lord’s Prayer, is a prayer most often recited in Christianity. It is a request for forgiveness and guidance from God. The Our Father is a circular prayer, with each phrase ending in “and lead us not into temptation.”
Some people say that the Our Father was originally spoken by Jesus to his disciples after he had fed them with bread and fish. Others believe that it was composed by Saint Francis of Assisi. Regardless of its origins, the Our Father is one of the most popular prayers in the world.
The Hail Mary
The Hail Mary is one of the most popular prayers in the Christian tradition. It has been said that it was first recited by Jesus himself. The Hail Mary is a petitionary prayer, asking for mercy and help from God. It is also a thanksgiving prayer, consisting of three parts: “Hail, full of grace”, “Blessed are you among women”, and “Holy Mary”.
The Hail Mary can be used as a private prayer or as part of the rosary. The traditional Roman Catholic rosary consists of 50 beads, each assigned to one of the Mysteries of the Holy Rosary. Each bead represents a particular prayer or Scripture passage from the Bible. You can also include Marian petitions along with the Our Father and Hail Mary prayers in your rosary.
When praying the Hail Mary, begin by saying “Hail Mary” then recite each section below once:
Hail, full of grace, Queen of the universe!
You have come to save us all!
We praise you for your wonderful favor shown to us on this day!
You have cast out evil from our midst and granted us salvation!
Since we were made in your image we pray for mercy now and every day!
Dear God, Thank you for all that you have done for us in the past. We know that we are not perfect and we have many struggles to face. Please help us to always remember that you love us and that you are with us every step of the way. Thank you for giving us this wonderful Rosary which can be a powerful tool to help guide our journey towards your kingdom. Amen.
