    Lana, that is the way we pray our family Rosary. I also used that little book in your picture when I have trouble meditating on the mysteries.

    Thank you for reminding me of the fruits of the Rosary. For a long time I didn't even realize the Rosary had fruits.

    I found the information on this website very helpful and some of your readers may find value in it too. www.how-to-pray-the-rosary-everyday.com/fruits-of-the-mysteries.html. Not only does it have the fruits, but the whole site is geared towards encouraging people to pray the Rosary everday.

    Considering the fruit of the mystery makes a huge difference in my contemplation and spiritual growth.

    Like I said, until recently I didn't realize that praying the Rosary would actually help me grow in virtue and holiness. The fruits of each mystery are mine to gain as I imitate the lives of Jesus and His Mother. How cool.

    I continue to find peace, joy and happiness through Rosary meditations. To pray the Rosary using scriptural references I found this page on Scriptural Rosary helpful.

    For Rosary meditations, I found their pages that contain a gaggle of meditations on the Rosary very useful. You can even bookmark their meditations pages for future reference.
