    All four sacred mysteries of the Rosary. The praying of the Rosary is dedicated to the Joyful (sometimes Joyous) Mysteries; the Sorrowful Mysteries; the Glorious Mysteries, and (as suggested by Pope John Paul II) the Luminous Mysteries.

    Story
    What did you like best about The Holy Rosary? What did you like least?

    The narrated voice came across to me as very stiff and unfeeling. I am a Catholic and have prayed the Rosary all of my life. This version omits the small prayer between the Glory Be to the Father and the announcement of the next decade and the subsequent Lord's Prayer and Hail Marys. If the narrator understood this prayer he would have instilled in his delivery a softening of tone and some love into his voice, but still with respect for what it is.. I bought this recording so that I could listen and pray the Rosary at various times of the day, but find this recording very difficult and unpleasant to listen to.

    The order of prayers should be, from the beginning of the beads at the crucifix

    The Sign of the Cross
    The Apostles Creed,
    The Lords Prayer,
    Three Hail Marys,
    then now and between each decade -
    The Glory be to the Father,
    this small prayer "Oh my Jesus forgive us our sins,save us from the fire of hell,
    lead all souls to heaven, especially those in need of mercy"
    The announcement of each decade,
    the Lords Prayer and then subsequent decade of Hail Marys.

    The final prayers at the end are correct.

    I do hope that someone will take notice of this review.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Maybe a change of delivery and a true knowledge of the order of prayers.


    Did The Holy Rosary inspire you to do anything?

    This recording was very disappointing I do not want to listen to it again.

    Includes the Mysteries of Light! For many Christians the rosary is a signifcant pathway to prayer and intimacy with God. Indeed, the rosary not only introduces us to the mysteries (life events) of Christ's life, but into the living mystery of Christ himself. In this recording, the St. Anthony Messenger Press staff prays the joyful, sorrowful, glorious and luminous mysteries of the rosary as an aid for your prayer. Each mystery begins with a Scripture verse and/or meditation.

    If you could sum up Mysteries of the Rosary in three words, what would they be?

    Respectful, clear


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    One fault for me was that a prayer between theGlory be to the Father prayer and the next decade was missing, and I have to quickly say it before the new decade begins. It would be helpful if there were clearer markers between each set of Mysteries,e.g. the Joyful Mysteries The Sorrowful Mysteries, etc. which would help to find where you may have had to leave listening, instead of frustratingly search until you found where you were up to.
