What is a devotional?
A devotional is short one-page writing about a topic related to the Christian faith and life. They usually have a Bible verse or two on which they are based and are not, due to their brevity on 'heavy' theological topics but provide words of encouragement or challenging and inspiring thoughts. Many devotional writings also contain illustrations from everyday life and then relate that to Christian living.

Yes, "devoted" is an adjective.
that would be the rosary... Roman Catholic AnswerThe Rosary: one of the most important things that we must do as Christians is to pray, and beginning prayer is meditat…ion. Realize that Christian meditation has absolutely nothing in common with Eastern meditation. That are completely different things and that fact that they are called by the same word is an unfortunate happenstance. Christian meditation is recalling and thinking about the truths of the faith. Meditation using Sacred Scripture (the Bible) is called Lectio Divinia. The rosary is a series of prayers based on the Bible - the Our Father, and the Hail Mary (the Angelic Salutation from the Gospel of Luke). But the vocal prayer is like the background music, if you will, to the meditation of the mysteries of the faith, which is the heart of the rosary. The rosary meditations are: Joyful: Annunciation of angel Gabriel to Mary Visitation of Mary to her cousin Elizabeth Nativity of our Blessed Savior Presentation in the Temple Finding in the Temple Luminous Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan Self manifestation of Jesus at the Miracle of Cana Proclamation of the Kingdom of God The Transfiguration on the Mount The Institution of the Blessed Eucharist Sorrowful The Agony in the Garden The Scouring at the Pillar The Crowning with Thorns The Carrying of the Cross The Crucifixion Glorious The Resurrection The Ascension The Descent of the Holy Spirit The Assumption of the B.V.M. The Crowning of the B.V.M. as Queen of Heaven and Earth. So we are praying by meditating on the mysteries of our Redemption. And this form of prayer was very ancient, but the form that we currently use was given by Our Blessed Mother to St. Dominic (who was founder of the Dominicans). As Catholics, we walk in our Savior's footsteps, and one of the ways in which we imitate Him is in His love and devotion to His mother. So the rosary is important to us, as Catholic Christians, as fulfilling our Blessed Lord's command to pray always, as meditation on the events of His life, as a form of prayer that was given to us at the express wish of Our Blessed Mother, and as one of the forms of prayer, above most others that leads many saints to intimate union with God. Below is the form that I made up for my students in Sunday school: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen CRUCIFIX L. I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of Heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into Hell. On the third day He rose again. He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. R. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the Communion of the Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen Our Father (for the Pope). Three Hail Mary's (Faith, Hope, Charity) Glory be. All. O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the first of Hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of Thy mercy. Amen For each decade: L. Our Father, who art in heaven, BIG BEAD Hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, On Earth as it is in Heaven R. Give us this day, our daily bread, And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us, And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. L. Hail Mary, full of grace, SMALL BEADS - 10 TIMES The Lord is with thee, Blessed are thou amongst women, And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. R. Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. L. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. CHAIN R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. L. O my Jesus... R. forgive us our sins, save us from the first of Hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of Thy mercy. Amen Final prayers: Hail, Holy Queen , Mother of Mercy! Our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sights, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! L. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God, R. that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen. All: O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death, and Resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech Thee, that meditating on these Mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain, and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our lord. Amen.
