The Rosary is a sacramental (an object blessed by the Church to give grace). The rosary beads are used to keep count of the individual prayers and mysteries.
This Catholic devotion presents the truths of our redemption through prayer over the joyous, sorrowful and glorious mysteries of Our Lord’s life.
These meditations are accompanied by the recitation of Our Fathers and Hail Marys. The Blessed Mother assists in this contemplative prayer.
