    The Rosery was introduced by Peter the Hermit in the year 1090 this was copied from Hindus and Mohammedans.
    The counting of prayers is a pagan practice and is expressly condemned by Christ. At least that’s what Matthew 6:5-13 suggest.
    I plead with you to look into things before using them… After all it was once mentioned that: “the closer you are to religion the further you are from god.”
    Religion is man made and most the time is fallible. You live your life with religion not for it.

    A few things to take notice of.

    Kind regards

    • Hi, Dan.

      Many thanks for getting in touch.

      My belief is that St Dominic received the rosary in 12/13 C.

      There is no worshiping of Mary; each Hail Mary is said as I contemplate the narrative of Jesus’ life across the Gospels. She is asked to intercede for us, in heaven just as she did at Cana. The Hail Mary is derived from the New Testament: salutation and address from an angel from heaven towards a sinless human who would bear the Son of God – and a young, probably frightened girl who said “Yes”.

      To be honest, jamming the bead between two fingers helps keep me on track (;-)

      Remember – St Paul told us in 1 Thessalonians 5:17: “pray without ceasing.” I pray to God and his son, Jesus Christ every day. Incessant pleas to pagan gods is what is being chastised in scripture.

      I’m sure that such repetitive thankfulness and praise is welcomed by God; just as our hearts repetitively beat in assurance of a creator. In the book of Revelation

      “another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.”

      And that’s from the King James Version of the Bible.

      I would recommend the scriptural audio rosary available at:

      Mary is the new ark of the covenant, the new Eve: “All generations will call me blessed”.

      Kind Regards,
      Hugh
