Our Lady's Favorite Prayer

In recent times the Mother of God has appeared in various parts of the world and asked for the recitation of the Rosary, the prayer she gave to the world centuries ago. It is her favorite prayer for it is essentially a meditation on the life of her Divine Son. The Rosary is a combination of vocal prayer and of mental prayer, namely, reflection on important events in the life of Christ and His Mother.

When one refers to the Rosary, it is usually understood to mean five decades, or one third (fourth) of the entire Rosary. While many Catholics pray five decades of the Rosary each day, there is a considerable number who pray the fifteen (twenty) decades daily.
