ROSARY means a crown of roses, a spiritual bouquet given to the Blessed Mother. The Rosary is divided into four parts each with five mysteries: Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious.

























USA Archibishop Fulton Sheen once said

"The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next. The power of the Rosary is beyond description."

Fatima Prayer


O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls into heaven, especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy.


MYSTERIES

For The Greater Glory of God

(Luke 1: 46-55)

And Mary said:

"My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. For he has looked upon his handmaid's lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed. The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name. 
His mercy is from age to age to those  who fear him. He has shown  might with his arm, dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart. He has thrown down rulers from their thrones but lifted up the lowly. The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty. He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy, according to his promise to our fathers, to Abram and to his descendants forever."
