Our Lady of the Rosary

The Living Rosary

The living or daily Rosary is nothing other than the formation of fifteen people who share the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary for a certain period of time (a month, a week, etc.). Each of them recites a decade of the Rosary every day, in honor of the mystery that has been assigned to them for the period indicated. By this simple and easy means, the Rosary is recited each day in its entirety among these fifteen associates, who form a living Rosary.

In the 19th century, Pauline-Marie Jaricot established the Confraternity of the Rosary or Living Rosary in the city of Lyon, France. Since then the Living Rosary has spread to France, Belgium and other countries, and not without reason. For what could be more useful than this association of prayers where hearts are united to honor the Queen of Heaven, to meditate on Her joys, Her sorrows and Her glories, by a method that adapts to all situations of life? The living Rosary thus strengthens the bonds of charity between the faithful; it gives more force to their supplications; it provides them with the means of deepening a mystery by meditating on it several times. Shouldn’t so many advantages encourage us to practice this beautiful devotion by involving our relatives and friends in it?
