A rosary is a traditional form of prayer strongly encouraged by the Church. It consists of reciting and repeating prayers (for example, Hail Mary) or invocations while counting the beads on the string. The Holy Rosary, also called the Marian devotion, is the most popular of the prayers. It revolves around the life of Jesus and encourages us to meditate upon its most important events, the twenty Mysteries of the Rosary. In addition, many other prayers can be recited with the help of the rosary: the Divine Mercy Chaplet, Chaplet of the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, Chaplet of the Holy Spirit.
Hozana offers retreats to help you learn how to recite the chaplets and pray the rosary. You will also discover why prayer is so important!
The rosary can be a personal or communal prayer. Many parishes offer a time of prayer around the rosary. It is possible to experience the communion of prayer online by joining a daily rosary live!
The Holy Rosary is a magnificent Marian prayer. John Paul II used to say: “The rosary is my preferred prayer. It is a marvellous prayer, simple but profound. Praying the rosary is nothing but contemplating the face of Christ with Mary”. The prayer encourages us to meditate on the life of Jesus, from the day he was born, until the Ascension. The rosary is divided into sections: Joyful Mysteries, Luminous Mysteries, Glorious Mysteries, and Sorrowful Mysteries. Each day of the week corresponds to another part of the rosary.

Many other prayers to Virgin Mary, Christ or Holy Spirit can be recited on rosary! Some of them are a part of specific devotions and do not follow the traditional rosary of five tens of beads. As for the Holy Rosary, repetition of the same prayer or invocation helps our soul focus and fill it with intent.
