"It sets us on fire with love of Our Lord!"

"Souls that thirst are refreshed!"

These are just two of the benefits and blessings of the Most Holy Rosary.
There are six more benefits and nine more blessings, you will find them inside.

In addition, Our Blessed Mother has made 15 promises to those that pray the Holy Rosary.  You will find these
promises inside as well.

The Holy Mother Church received the Rosary in its present form in 1214 in a miraculous way, when Our Lady
appeared to Saint Dominic and gave it to him as a powerful means of converting the heretics and other sinners.  
Since then the devotion spread around the world with incredible and miraculous results.

One night, as Saint Dominic was deep in prayer, Our Lady appeared to him, holding the Rosary in Her hand and
said: "Be of good cheer, Dominic, the remedy for the evils which you lament will be meditation on the life,
death and glory of My Son, uniting all with the recitation of the angelic salutation (Hail Mary) by which the
mystery of redemption was announced to the world. This devotion, which you are to inculcate by your
preaching, is a practice most dear to My Son and Me. The faithful will obtain by it innumerable advantages and
shall always find Me ready to aid them in their wants. This is the precious gift which I leave to you and to your
spiritual children."

The Rosary Prayer is much more than the repetition of Our Father's and Hail Mary's.  It is contemplation on
the life of Jesus.  It could be thought of as a walk with His Mother as She shares the Life of Her Son with you.

A Scriptural Rosary includes verses from the Bible that help you to focus on each Mystery of the Rosary.  
Illustrations of each Mystery are designed to help do the same.  There are a total of 20 Mysteries, 4 groups with
5 Mysteries each.  These groups are named:

The Joyful Mysteries
The Sorrowful Mysteries
The Glorious Mysteries
The Luminous Mysteries

At the top of the next page you can see an overview of each group by clicking on the appropriate link.

The site is designed so that those that have never prayed a Rosary before will be able to easily do so.  There is a
"How to Pray the Rosary" section but you should find that you will be able to pray this Scriptural Rosary with
no problems.
