    Pray the Rosary

    How to Pray the Rosary

    Look at the rosary as having two meanings. The first, the rosary as an object, is made up of a crucifix, a medal and 59 beads. The second meaning is the prayer and meditation. The rosary, as an object, is not necessarily needed to pray and meditate. However, it serves as an excellent guide to keep track of your prayers.

    When praying the rosary we recite seven prayers, in a sequence described below. While praying we meditate on the four groups of mysteries, which represent important events related to Jesus and Mary. Everyday, we reflect on different mysteries. The following table shows the days of the week and the mystries associate to them:

    MondayJoyful Mysteries
    TuesdaySorrowful Mysteries
    WednesdayGlorious Mysteries
    ThursdayLuminous Mysteries
    FridaySorrowful Mysteries
    SaturdayJoyful Mysteries
    SundayGlorious Mysteries

    There are five mysteries in each group. For instance, today is Wednesday and we meditate on the Glorious Mysteries:

    First mystery: The Glorious Resurrection of Our Lord
    Second mystery: The Ascension of Our Lord
    Third mystery: The Descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost
    Fourth mystery: The Assumption of Mary into Heaven
    Fifth mystery: The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

    The Rosary can be divided into three parts: the introduction, the five decades, and the conclusion.

    The introduction:

    1. Start with the crucifix. Hold it in your hands and make the Sign of the cross and recite the Apostles' Creed.

    2. On the first bead, say the Our Father.

    3. On the next three beads, say the Hail Mary, once on each bead.

    4. On the fourth bead also recite Glory be to the Father.

    This concludes the introduction.

    The five decades:

    A decade is prayed on 11 beads. On the first bead of a decade we recall the mysteries for that day. For instance today we recall to mind and meditate on the Glorious Mysteries. On that first bead of the decade we say the Our Father. On the following ten beads we say the Hail Mary ten times, once on each bead. The name "decade", which means ten, comes from the ten Hail Mary prayers. On the 11th bead of the decade, we recite Glory be to the Father and then the Fatima Prayer. This concludes a decade.

    The first decade:

    5. Hold the next bead, the fifth, and recall to mind the first mystery. Today, it is The Glorious Resurrection of Our Lord. Meditate on it, then, on the same fifth bead say the Our Father. Keep meditating on the mystery throughout the decade.

    6. Starting from the next bead, the sixth, to the 15th, say the Hail Mary ten times, once on each bead.

    7. After saying the tenth Hail Mary, while on the same bead, the 15th, recite Glory be to the Father and then the Fatima Prayer.

    This concludes the first decade.

    The second decade:

    8. Hold the next bead, the 16th, and recall to mind the second mystery. Today, it is The Ascension of Our Lord. Meditate on it, then, on the same 16th bead say the Our Father. Keep meditating on the mystery throughout the decade.

    9. Starting from the next bead, the 17th, to the 26th, say the Hail Mary ten times, once on each bead.

    10. After saying the tenth Hail Mary, while on the same bead, the 26th, recite Glory be to the Father and then the Fatima Prayer.

    This concludes the second decade.

    Note the similarity between the first and the second decades. The same similarity exists for the following third, fourth and fifth decades:

    The third decade:

    11. Repeat step 8 starting on bead 27. Recal the third mystery, which today is The Descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

    12. Repeat steps 10 and 11, starting on bead 28 and ending on bead 37. This concludes the third decade.

    The fourth decade:

    13. Repeat step 8 starting on bead 38. Recal the fourth mystery, which today is The Assumption of Mary into Heaven.

    14. Repeat steps 10 and 11, starting on bead 39 and ending on bead 48. This concludes the fourth decade.

    The fifth decade:

    15. Repeat step 8 starting on bead 49. Recal the fifth mystery, which today is The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth.

    16. Repeat steps 10 and 11, starting on bead 50 and ending on bead 59. This concludes the fifth decade.

    The Conclusion:

    17. After having prayed the Fatima Prayer on bead 59, we conclude, on the same last bead, by praying the Hail Holy Queen.
