The Rosary ( pronunciation: /ˈrəʊz(ə)ri/, Latin : rosarium , in the sense of "crown of roses" or "garland of roses" [1] ), usually in the form of the Dominican Rosary , [2] [3] is a type of prayer used especially in the Catholic Church named for the string of knots or beads used to count the component prayers. When used as the type of prayer, the word is usually capitalized ("the Rosary"), as is customary for other names of prayers, such as "the Lord's Prayer ", and "the Hail Mary ". When referring to the beads, it is normally written with a lower-case initial ("a rosary").

A standard fifteen Mysteries of the Rosary, based on the long-standing custom, was established by Pope Pius V during the 16th century, grouping the mysteries in three sets: the Joyful Mysteries, the Sorrowful Mysteries, and the Glorious Mysteries. During 2002 Pope John Paul II said that it is fitting that a new set of five be added, termed the Luminous Mysteries, bringing the total number of mysteries to twenty. These mysteries had been used by Holy Cross father Patrick Peyton during the 20th Century.

For more than four centuries, the rosary has been promoted by several popes as part of the veneration of Mary in Roman Catholicism , [4] and consisting essentially in meditation on the life of Christ. [5] The rosary also represents the Roman Catholic emphasis on "participation in the life of Mary, whose focus was Christ", and the Mariological theme "to Christ through Mary." [6]
