Do you know someone who is good at telling stories? Someone you love to listen to? Maybe it's a teacher in school or your mother or father. We like good storytellers because they tell us things we like to hear.
When we pray the Rosary we follow along with the world’s most amazing story ever told. There are fifteen decades, and each decade tells us a very important story about an event in the life of Jesus. Each of these events is called a mystery. Mysteries are stories about God. We can never know everything about these stories. They never get old, because they keep telling us things about God!
Almost 1000 years ago, Mary came to St. Dominic in a vision. He was a holy priest. She gave him the Rosary. She taught him to pray the Glorious, Joyful, and Sorrowful Mysteries.
When we pray the Rosary, we say certain prayers, including the Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Fatima Prayer, Apostle’s Creed, and Hail Holy Queen.
The Rosary tells about the whole life of Jesus. The Rosary begins with the Joyful Mysteries, which are happy stories.
The Joyful Mysteries are these:
In these stories, we learn about how Jesus came into the world, how He was born, and special events that happened in His childhood. We thank God for sending His Son to help us.
The second part of the Rosary is the Sorrowful Mysteries. These tell us how Jesus suffered for us. Yes, these stories are sad, but they also tell us that God is with us, even when bad things happen to us.
