How to Pray the Rosary

The Rosary is the book of the blind, Where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whoes eyes close upon the shadow of the world, and open on the substance of the next. The power of the rosary is beyond description.

-Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
