    Not Only For the Ignorant Some days ago I read

    a response to one of my observations that society is drifting away from faith. The answer was that now we are more educated and don't need to rely on faith any more. That got me to thinking, and I recalled this true story. More that a hundred years ago an elderly gentleman with...

    Protestant Rosary Prayer.

    When I first prayed the Rosary, I simply asked God;  "God if I am doing anything wrong, please let me know and I will stop prying the Rosary."That was five years ago and I have never looked back. You want to know God better? Take the elevator and stop taking the stairs. No one...

    An Evangelical Who Began To Pray The Rosary

    I have been a Christian for over 20 years and have served Jesus in many ways. He has blessed me with deep experiences in prayer. I went to a retreat in November to listen to a woman Immaculée from Rwanada. I only wanted to hear her story which was the first session. The second...

    How I Started Praying The Rosary

    This is a short story how I did start praying the Rosary. I have been Catholic since my childhood. My Mother is very devoted to the Rosary prayer. Until the last year, I have had only little knowledge about the Rosary and its meaning. It seemed to me that Rosary is used just...

    Reciting A Proper Rosary

    I know what The Bible says. Jesus tells people not to say "vain, repetitious prayers" and mindless lip service to God. To an untrained observer, that is just what the Rosary appears to be--a string of long, repetitive prayers that go nowhere. That is not what a Rosary is at all...

    "Give me an army praying the Rosary",

    said Pope Pius IX, "and I will conquer the world." Pope Blessed Pius IX was of course the pope during the time of the Risorgimento - the reunification of Italy - and became the first "prisoner in the Vatican" when he refused to make concessions about the temporal powers of the...

    How I Pray The Rosary

    I want to share you how I collect my prayer intentions and how I pray for each of them. I have a small 64 page note book which I use to list my prayer intentions. Whenever I get a new prayer intention, I list it down. For example, if somebody dies, I write the name of this...

    I'm a Catholic convert.

    My conversion experience was due in large part to the rosary. As St John Paul II, said in his Apostolic Letter: Rosarium Virginis Mariæ, the Rosary is contemplating the face of Christ. In the rosary, we see the message of salvation clearly especially through the Annunciation...

    I Pray The Rosary

    Every day I pray all fifteen decades of the Rosary, in Ecclesiastical Latin. I get so much more out of the Rosary by praying in Latin, plus it helped my pronunciation. I won't pray the Luminous "Mysteries" invented by John Paul II, though.

    Special Rosary On Good Friday

    Hi Everyone, Imagine what might happen if every catholic in the world would pray a Rosary on the same day! We have an example in October of 1573, when Europe was saved from the invasion of the mighty Turkish fleet. Europe was saved by the praying of the Rosary by all Christians...

    I usually pray it once

    or twice a week. When I was a little boy, my parents always prayed the nightly Rosary with me. As an adult, I've gotten really busy, but that is no excuse. Whenever I'm committing in the car I try to make a point of praying it then.
