The Holy Rosary


Praying the Rosary


Hold the crucifix and pray the Apostles Creed. The Our Father is said on each of the large beads; the Hail The Holy RosaryMary on each of the small beads; the Glory Be after each set of small beads.

Each decade (set of 10 small beads) represents a Mystery. The large bead before each decade is to announce the Mystery and recite the Our Father. Say the 10 Hail Marys (on each small bead) while meditating on the Mystery. Pray the Glory Be, then recite the prayer of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima.

Start over again with the next Mystery on the next large bead and decade. Continue through all five Mysteries. When finished with all five Mysteries, say the Hail, Holy Queen while holding the charm of Mary.
