“The Rosary is my favorite prayer. A marvelous prayer!
Marvelous in its simplicity and in its depth…
Against the background of the words “Hail Mary” there pass before
the eyes of the soul the main episodes in the life of Jesus Christ.
They are composed altogether of the Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious
Mysteries, and they put us in living communion with Jesus through
— we could say — His Mother’s heart.
At the same time our heart can enclose in these decades of the
Rosary all the facts that make up the life of the individual, the
family, the nation, the Church, and all humankind. They include
personal matters and those of our neighbor, and particularly those
who are closest to us. Thus in the simple prayer of the Rosary
beats the rhythm of human life.”
-Pope John Paul II
