Last week I shared a post called How to Pray the Rosary that shows you how to correctly pray the rosary.
Well, now I would like to follow up with that post and share the mysteries of the rosary. That what was new to me, too. I also learned that there are certain days in which these mysteries are meditated on. And this is why we should take time to learn about our Catholic faith.
I understood we prayed the rosary after confession, during a funeral services or for our own personal intentions. If you had the same understanding, you’re about to learn more about.
