This is a community rosary thread for the needs of ALL forum members, their families, friends, and for ALL intentions placed in the Prayer Intentions Forum.
All members of the CAF community are invited and encouraged to pray with us whenever they wish. Please jump in! For an explanation on how often one may post in Prayer Intentions, please see here.
How To Post in the Rosary Thread
For an explanation of how to pray the rosary, please see here.
Please include at the top of each post which Mystery is being prayed as well as a count for which Hail Mary(s) you are praying within the decade.
The format that has been established for the perpetual rosary is as follows:
*]The Joyful Mysteries
*]The Luminous Mysteries
*]The Sorrowful Mysteries
*]The Glorious Mysteries[/LIST]Optional Practices
The Fatima Prayer
Some people choose to include the Fatima Prayer at the end of each decade after the Glory Be. This is optional and depends on personal preference.
New pictures may be placed at the start of each Mystery. Please be considerate of those on slow Internet connections and do not place pictures more frequently. When beginning a new Mystery just copy and paste the image from another already on the thread or you may choose one of your own. The images must be smaller than 400 pixels high and 400 pixels wide. They must also be appropriate for our participants who are as young as age 13, so no graphic imagery. Lastly, they must not pose a copyright concern. If in doubt, leave it out.
Posting Pictures & AttachmentsPhoto Editing Instructions Personal Intentions
If you would like to make a very short list of personal intentions that are not included in the Prayer Intentions forum already, you may place it at the top or bottom of a post. Please do not repeat intentions or make long lists of intentions. Please do not explain the intention, either. Short, sweet, and to the point.
