The Holy Rosary

About 800 years ago Our Lady appeared to a very holy man named Dominic. She gave him a very special gift to help fight the devil. She gave him the Rosary.

The Rosary is Our Lady’s special prayer. It is not hard to say. We start the Rosary with the Apostle’s Creed. On each big bead we then say an Our Father and on each little bead a Hail Mary. At the end of each decade we say a Glory be to the Father and at the very end we say the Hail Holy Queen. The Rosary has five decades. Each decade is ten Hail Mary’s long. During each decade we think of special moments from the life of Our Lord. Sometimes it is difficult to keep your mind from thinking about other things but we should always try.

Say your Rosary every day. Families that say it together will be specially blessed by God.
