I just learned the prayers of the Rosary, and prayed it for the first time last night. Well I don’t actually have a Rosary yet (hoping to get one next week), but just used my fingers to count.
I have some questions, though.
Can it be split up throughout the day? Say maybe 1-2 decades in the morning, 1-2 throughout the day, and the rest at night?
If so, does each set need to be prefixed with the Apostles’ Creed, Our Father, the three Hail Mary’s, and the Glory Be, like the whole rosary is? Do they need to be ended with the Hail Holy Queen, or just after all 5 are finished? Does it matter?
Also, I did it last night, but it was hard to reflect on the mysteries while saying the prayers at the same time. Does this get easier?
