Let us not try to fit prayer into our day. Rather, let us fit our day around prayer. Let us give priority to prayer, and our day will be different when it begins with prayer. And gradually we will learn that the Holy Spirit prays through us...." with groans that words cannot express."
The Rosary is composed of biblical prayers - and meditates mainly on biblical events,with the exception of the Assumption and the Coronation of Our Lady which is accepted by Catholic - Orthodox and even Anglican creeds and traditions. The prayers are:
- The Our Father (Matthew 6)
- The Glory is a wonderful doxology. One finds often similar formulas at the beginning of Pauline Letters.
- The Hail Mary - the first part of which is taken from the greetings of the Angel Gabriel and of Elizabeth.
