Why do Catholics pray the Rosary?
The Rosary is adapted from the complex prayers of medieval monks. It’s a powerful prayer because in it, we ask Mary – whose prayers are never refused – to pray for us. In addition, the mysteries of the Rosary introduce us to the lives of Jesus and Mary. Each mystery is associated with a fruit. For example, the fruit of the mystery of the Annunciation is humility. Praying the Rosary opens us to the graces so we can be more like Christ.
