The rosary is one of the oldest and most popular prayers in the Catholic faith.
Pope Francis described it as the most beautiful prayer that we can offer to the Virgin Mary.
“It is a contemplation of the stages of the life of Jesus the Saviour with his Mother Mary and it is a weapon that protects us from evil and temptation,” he said.
The intention of praying the Rosary is to enter into the four mysteries (the joyful, luminous, sorrowful, and glorious mysteries) of Jesus’ life.
Praying the Hail Mary repeatedly helps us to quietly reflect on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and as we do so “the loving face of God Himself, whom we are called to contemplate in eternity, is increasingly revealed to us,” he said.
Holy Rosary is recited in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel after the 9.15am Mass each weekday morning.
