The Most Holy Rosary

rosary_image.pngThe Most Holy Rosary is a prayer firmly grounded in Scripture and dear to countless faithful over the centuries. When we pray the Rosary, we allow ourselves to be guided by Mary to ponder, as she did, the saving mysteries of Christ in our hearts. No other prayer outside of Holy Mass is more highly recommended by the Church, and Our Lady herself (at Fatima) has exhorted us to pray the Rosary daily. The prayers of the Rosary in English and Spanish are available here .
