The Origin Of The Holy Roman Rosary
The Holy Roman Rosary is one of the most popular religious items in the Roman Catholic world. Its purpose is to meditate the mysteries of Jesus Christ and to devote a prayer ritual to Mama Mary. That’s why the rosary is a popular Marian item. The etymology of the word “rosary” is the Latin word rosarium, which means “garden rose” or “rose garland” or a collection of roses. It got its name because of the remarkable symbolism of the rose flower to Mama Mary. Rosary denotes two things:

Most people who do not understand this sacred ritual would say that praying the rosary is a boring act. To understand this, one should have a deep understanding of the history of the rosary and a great mind-opening to love, charity, hope and other virtues and values important to the Catholic faith.
