Rosary Question

Do some Catholics still pray the pre-Trent version of the Catholic Rosary?

Are there any issues with praying this version?

My understanding is that the “pre-trent” rosary is a Lutheran adaptation of the rosary. I don’t believe the “pre-trent” Hail Mary was ever used as part of the rosary within Catholic circles.

I never heard of it before! God Bless, Memaw

I read that St Pius V added the 'Holy Mary Mother of God…" to the Hail Mary and that the Rosary was prayed prior to that addition. That’s where the question is coming from.

Niether have I heard of it before!! :slight_smile:
