How to Pray the Rosary
Not sure how to pray the rosary? Or trying to help a friend to pray it? This simple guide can help. "The Rosary is the prayer of the humble and of the saints. In its mysteries, they contemplate, along with Mary, the life of Jesus, the merciful face of the Father." - Pope Francis
St Josemaria and Sister Lucia of Fatima
While commenting on the custom of praying the rosary, Saint Josemaria recalls his friendship with Sister Lucia, one of the three visionaries of Fatima. "When I was in Portugal I went to see a friend of mine whom I love very much... It was Sor Lucia. It was great hearing her talk about the Rosary."
One December morning in 1931, Fr. Josemaría dashed off this small book in one sitting, just after celebrating Mass. He poured into these pages an example of his way of meditating the mysteries of the life of Jesus and Mary, and of reciting the Rosary. Parting with his reader, he confides, “My friend: I have told you just part of my secret. It is up to you, with God’s help, to discover the rest. Take courage. Be faithful. Become little (...) If you say the Rosary in this way, you will learn to pray well.”
