Question Franciscan Crown Rosary

I was wondering if anyone prays the Franciscan Crown regularly? If so, do you pray it as well as the regular rosary, or in place of it?

Thanks.

Default Re: Franciscan Crown Rosary

I have prayed the Franciscan Crown, but not on a regular basis. Usually if I pray the Franciscan Crown I pray it instead of the Rosary since they are both very Marian prayers, but there is no requirement to do it this way.

Some people say both, some say one or the other. Since they are both private devotion, unless you are in a Religious Order it is up to you to decide.

I am not in a religious order, however, I am going thru formation to be a Secular Franciscan. That is how I found out about the Franciscan Crown Rosary. I like the simplicity of how to pray it, and that it centers on the seven joys of Mary.

Peace!
