The Rosary

The purpose of the Rosary is to help keep in memory certain principal events or mysteries in the history of our salvation, and to thank and praise God for them. There are twenty mysteries reflected upon in the Rosary, and these are divided into the five JOYFUL MYSTERIES, the five LUMINOUS MYSTERIES, the five SORROWFUL MYSTERIES, and the five GLORIOUS MYSTERIES.

Glory be to the father
and to the Son,

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou among woman and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus
