The Mysteries of the Rosary

Our Lady taught Blessed Alan de la Roche and said to him in a vision:

    "When people say one hundred and fifty Hail Mary’s, this prayer is very helpful to them and is a very pleasing tribute to Me.

    "But they will do better still and will please Me even more if they say these Hail Mary’s while meditating on the life, death and passion of Jesus Christ — for this meditation is the soul of this prayer."
