The Rosary List

img_7809

My day isn’t complete without praying the rosary. The practice helps me to stop, reflect, and ponder the gifts God has given us in Jesus.

If you know how to pray the rosary but could use a reminder in regards to the Mysteries, no worries. I have a list for you. Simply decide upon which set of Mysteries you want to pray that day, and follow along. I’ve color-coded each set for your convenience.

All you require now is a rosary—or your fingers—to spend a few peaceful minutes with Jesus and Mary.
