    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
