The Holy Rosary is one of three Sacramentals that the Blessed Virgin Mary has given to the Holy Catholic Church

In the thirteenth century, Mary gave the Rosary as a powerful weapon to mankind to combat the evils that were in this world as a result of the spiritual battle that is taking place between Satan and God

Since then, the blessings received through this Sacramental are beyond man's count

STEP 1: Make the sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit


STEP 2 : Say the Apostle's Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord

He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary

He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried

He descended into hell. On the third day He rose again

He ascended into heaven, And is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty

He will come again to judge the living and the dead

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting


STEP 3 : Say 1 "Our Father"

Our Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name

Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, On earth as it is in Heaven

Give us this day, our daily bread, And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil


STEP 4 : Say 3 "Hail Mary's": (For the virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity)Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee

Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of death


STEP 5: Say 1 "Glory Be":Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

STEP 6: The Rosary Breakdown

The Holy Rosary consists of 20 decades

A decade consists of: 1 Our Father 10 Hail Mary's 1 Glory Be

To pray an entire Rosary, you must pray 20 times the "Our Father," 10 "Hail Mary's" and the "Glory Be" in that order

The Rosary is been divided into 4 parts of 5 decades each

Each of the four parts are called a Chaplet

To pray an entire Chaplet, you must pray 5 times the "Our Father," 10 "Hail Mary's" and "Glory Be" in that order

The general practice of Catholic is to commit themselves to praying one Chaplet per day

STEP 7: The Mysteries of the Rosary

While praying a decade, you reflect on a mystery. There are specific mysteries for each day of the week

For example, when praying the Holy Rosary on a Monday, you meditate on the Joyful Mysteries

During the recitation of first decade, you meditate on the Annunciation of Mary

During the recitation of the second decade, you meditate on the Visitation

During the recitation of the third decade, you meditate on the Nativity of Jesus. Etc

The following is a list of the Mysteries:

Joyful Mysteries - Monday and Saturday

The Annunciation

The Visitation

The "Fatima Prayer":

After the completion of one decade, you recide the "Fatima Prayer":

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy

STEP 9: The "Hail Holy Queen":

After the completion of one Chaplet (5 decades which represents 5 mysteries), you pray the "Hail Holy Queen" prayer. Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs mourning and weeping in this valley of tears

Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile show us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ

STEP 10 : The Sign of the Cross

You conclude the Rosary by doing the Sign of the Cross

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
