Most Holy Rosary
The Rosary is said in many different ways, and I am not going to get into all of them,
but will give the basic outline and the prayers along with a personal one. So first you
say what you are praying for then you say the Apostles Creed, the an Our Father
on the first large bead. Then you say for an increase in faith, hope and charity and say
3 Hail Mary's on the group of 3 at the beginning then a Glory be to the Father.
Repeat this section 5 times
Now there are 4 sets of mysteries, they each have 5 subjects to contemplate on while
you say the Our Father (large or lone bead), and the 10 Hail Mary's that you say on the
group of 10 beads, then you say a Glory be to the Father and the Fatima prayer. Then
you repeat and start over at with the Our Father on the large or single bead etc.
When you have finished the 5 decades then you say the Hail Holy Queen.
