Thanks for asking! So Glory Be is the prayer to the Trinity: glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen

The Our Father begins every mystery which is a set of ten Hail Mary's that focus on an event in Jesus' and Mary's life.

There are 15 mysteries (plus 5 added by Pope John Paul 2) the Joyful are centered on Jesus birth, the sorrowful are on his passion and death, the glorious are about His Resurrectionand Ascension.

So to understand it, you have to study Jesus?

The Rosary is a study of Jesus in fact a 15 minute meditation on one aspect of His life.

Is that what they are mumbling? It's cool that it's a meditation on Jesus. I assumed it was about various saints. Not sure about the Mary thing tho. She was a Godly woman but she's still human.

Agreed, she is a human. But a priveleged one more than any other human. The Hail Mary is fact a Biblical prayer.

I can't tell them apart - think I have seen 7-beaded ones !?

Hi Arcmis. That's a great question! The rosary as pictured above always has 5 sets of 10 beads but a chaplet can vary in the number of beads depending on the prayers said.

Kate I'm also a fellow Catholic why to defend your faith on some of those comments! Have you taken apologetics. Its a study that teaches you how to defend your faith. Your truly Wilzers.

Hi Wilzer! Good to see another Catholic here. They seem to be a rare species. I've not formally studied Apologetics but enjoy listening to others defend the faith especially converts, do you recommend any specific program? I hope you will jump in and help teach the faith!

Serious question: Why so many Hail Marys? God should already get the point after the naughth time.

One would think huh? Lol. Good question. The Jewish at least in the past had to memorize all 150 psalms and pray them. Converts to Christian faith would recite 150 Our Fathers. Later the Hail Mary was added. In the original Rosary there were 150 Hail Mary's

This reminds me of a scene in Beavis and Butt-Head Do America where Beavis and Butt-Head get on the wrong tour bus (which is filled with nuns), so they go to a Catholic church in New Mexico, and they go to the priest’s seat in a confession room, where other people confess their “sins” to Beavis and Butt-Head. When someone asked Beavis how many Hail Marys the guy has to say, Beavis said 1,000.

Those 150 psalms were all different prayers that would be beneficial in their own unique ways, while 56 Hail Marys is just constant repetition of the same thing that you already know. Not that I even think Mary should be venerated to this degree.

To me, it makes no sense that we’d be more likely to go to heaven by doing something so tedious yet so pointless. Again, even when I thought that I’m Catholic, I always knew that faith alone is all one needs for salvation.

It's tedious for me to cook 3 meals a day, to wash and fold clothes, to get up every single morning. Is it meaningless? No. Things are only meaningless if you make them so. Prayer is never tedious or meaningless. Lifting your mind and heart to God and meditating on the life of Jesus is never tedious or meaningless. That's what the Rosary is. Perhaps you should try turning off your phone and screen and start praying from your heart and listening to God. Faith is one path to salvation,are you positive you have that?

But it’s the same prayer you’re reciting 56 times, so both you and God should already get the point. Praying this repetitively accomplishes absolutely nothing. God doesn’t care how many times you recite the prayer; He just cares that you believe what He wants you to believe.

Yes, of course I do; and that’s all I believe one needs for salvation.

Who is God to you and how can we know Him?

What do you mean? I believe in the same God as you believe — minus the pope and his acclaimed idols (AKA “saints”).

Forget about religion. Do you believe God loves you, before he created you He had a destiny for you. And He only wills your good and only when you turn your your whole heart and soul and life over to Him will you be truly happy and at peace?

Yeah, of course I believe that God loves me.
