How do I pray a 54-day rosary novena?


Can anyone please let me know how to do a 54-day rosary. Do we need to fast and avoid meat? I am not a Christian, so your help would be greatly appreciated.


To pray a 54-day rosary novena, you pray five decades of the rosary for 54 days in a row. For the first 27 days you pray in supplication for your intention; for the last 27 days you pray in thanksgiving, whether or not the intention has been granted. You do not need to fast or avoid meat while praying the novena.
