2. The Rosary is a biblical prayer. Many non-Catholics condemn the recitation of the Holy Rosary. However, few know that the Rosary is a prayer that, almost in its entirety, has its origins in the Gospels. For example, the first series of Mysteries, the Joyful Mysteries, comes from the Gospel of Luke, chapters one and two. Thus, meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, we also meditate on the love of God.
