Pope John XXIII


Pope John XXIII

"The Rosary is the glory of the Roman Church.... It takes its place ... after the Mass and the Sacraments."1

"The Rosary is a magnificent and universal prayer for the needs of the Church, the nations and the entire world."2

"My day must be one long prayer; prayer is the breath of life. I propose to recite all fifteen decades of the Rosary every day, if possible in the chapel before the Blessed Sacrament."3

"We never fail to recite it {the Rosary} each day in its entirety {mysteries}."4

"We have several times had occasion to urge the clergy and laity to public and private prayer."5

"If you recite the Family Rosary, all united, you shall taste peace."6
