HOW TO PRAY THE ROSARY, STEP-BY-STEP
We realised quite early that many people say that they know how to pray the Rosary,
If you ask them to lead, many are not comfortable.
We decided to go with the idea, that very few really know how to pray the Rosary.
This will allow us to meet them on a common ground where no one becomes embarressed for not knowing how to pray it.
We also decided that we expect some clergy to have tempered with prayers over time, as the Devil on the inside wants to weaken the defence of the Church. That is why we now try to include the Latin texts next to the local language. It gives our users a chance to select a format that suits the person praying.
It was quite clear to us early on, that many sources of "How to Pray the Rosary..." only included the link to the bible texts, instead of the actual texts when it came to the Mystery. It was an easy decision to include each Mystery in our various Rosary's. We do not regret this decision for one second. It gives us such wonderful chance to meditate/read/find an inner sense.
Our Lady of Fatima says in her third apparition in Fatima in 1917:
" When you pray the Rosary, say after each mystery: “O my Jesus, forgive us, save us from the fire of hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are most in need.” "
Including each Mystery text has also given us a chance to work with and develop the content. For examples:
- our version for children show a lesser amount of text, important bits and larger text font.
- the advanced version may include some texts before and after the suggested Mystery text as well as some text from another apostle. To give a more depth to the Mystery.
- Our print-your-own-broschure has a limited amount of pages, and Mystery text need to be adopted to the broschure, instad of printing a professional A5 copy.
- As we add illustrations from an art collection, we may pick illustrations showing certain words from the Mystery.
Our extensive research has guided us through our works. This is part of our mission; to create and develope material for people to pray the Rosary.
