I’ve been praying the rosary lately (which would make most of my extended family have a stroke), but I’ve run into trouble. I learned how to pray the rosary from a book of Catholic prayers, supposedly signed off on by a bishop.
In that version, you start off in the normal way (Cross-Creed, Our Father, 3X Hail Mary, Glory Be) and proceed through the decades and the mysteries. When you’re finished with the decades, you say the “Oh God, whose only begotten Son…” prayer.
Then I found out that there’s the Hail, Holy Queen at the end, thanks to the folks at Holy Cross Ministries and their rosary bead giveaway program. Everywhere except my little book of Catholic prayers from Bookland includes it.
Then I found out about the Fatima prayer at the end of the decade, thanks to internet reading.
So, ummmm…which rosary do YOU pray? Sell me your rosary.
