6a-9. The Holy Rosary
(Five decades of the Rosary should be prayed daily)
How to pray the Rosary:

Pray the Apostles’ Creed (#6a) on the Crucifix. Then offer one Our Father (#6b) on the large bead, and three Hail Marys (#6c) on each of the three small beads for the Holy Father, the Pope. After the three Hail Marys, pray the Glory Be (#7a), the Fatima Rosary Prayer (#7b), and the Consecration Prayer (#7c).

Announce the Mystery for the decade (see #7d) and meditate on it while praying. Pray one Our Father on the large bead. Pray the Hail Mary on each of the ten small beads. On the next large bead, pray the Glory Be, the Rosary Prayer, and the Consecration Prayer. Then, on the same large bead, announce the next Mystery and begin again with the Our Father. Continue until you have prayed all five decades.
For the Church’s teachings on the Rosary, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraphs 971, 2678, and 2708.
After the Rosary, pray #8, 8a, 9, 10 & 11a. (Note: Pope Leo XIII asked for a prayer to St. Joseph to be recited at the end of the Rosary.) Please see pages 582, 616, and 649 for Rosary meditation resources.
