How to pray the Holy Rosary?

Perhaps you may agree with us that there are periods in our lives when we feel distant from God, when we experience an emptiness in our hearts. Life becomes heavy and monotonous, and problems often take on dimensions that scare us. The future appears uncertain, troubling our souls with doubts and fears.

Perhaps we are men and women submerged in this great whirlpool that is the modern world, and we often fear sinking amid so many storms and dangers.

We worry about the situation of our family, about the job that may be at risk, jeopardizing the provision and education of our loved ones.

Nothing seems to have a solution…

Meanwhile, in 1917, to three young shepherds in Fatima, Portugal, the Blessed Virgin Mary left them with and insisted on the prayer that would bring about the longed-for peace for the world. Yes, that peace that we desire so much.

Peace, which Saint Thomas Aquinas defines as “the tranquility of order.” Exactly. It is that serenity that arises from order. Order, which means that everything is placed in its proper and harmonious arrangement.

That is how our soul should be in relation to God. In order. And in order for us to attain the grace of possessing peace within ourselves, we must do so through prayer, especially through the recitation of the Holy Rosary.

What are the benefits 

of praying the Rosary?

According to Saint Louis de Montfort, the pious and efficacious recitation of the Rosary:
