Praying the Rosary in OctoberPosted on: 1st Oct 2020
Key Stage 3 & 4 classes had Rosary sessions in the month of October. During the sessions, the different mysteries i.e. events in the life of Jesus and Mary were explained. The session ended with the recitation of 1 Our Father and 3 Hail Marys.
The recitation of the Rosary started with the apparition of Mary (Mother of Jesus) to Saint Dominic around 13th Century A.D. In the vision, Mary urged Saint Dominic to encourage others to say the Rosary.
Rosary is in fact a meditation on the life of Jesus and Mary. The Rosary combines prayer (the I Believe, the Our Fathers & Hail Marys) and reflection on important events in the life of Mary and Jesus.
A Rosary has five decades and usually five decades of the Rosary is recited each day but you can recite more than one Rosary a day.

Each of these mysteries have five events from the life of Jesus and Mary, which is said on the days listed above.
