St. Dominic encouraged everyone to say the Rosary. It pleases Mary when we say the Holy Rosary often and well. She used to say it with St. Bernadette when she appeared several times to her at Lourdes. Also the three children of Fatima learned from Mary the power of the Rosary. Mary taught them that the Rosary obtains graces to live a life close to God.
The Holy Rosary is a simple devotion, which can be practiced by all people (young and old). It can be said anywhere, and at any time. While we repeat the “Our Father”, ten “Hail Marys” and “Glory be to the Father” we think about great moments in the lives of Jesus and his Blessed Mother called “Mysteries”. There are four Mysteries – Joyful, Sorrowful, Light and Glorious. We learn to imitate their holy lives through the intercession of our Blessed Mother.
