Best Answer

The Rosary is a traditional Catholic prayer (also prayed by some Anglicans/Episcopalians) in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary. While praying the Rosary, it is customary to contemplate certain key events in the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, which Catholics call the "mysteries" (the Incarnation, the Nativity, Jesus' Crucifixion, the Resurrection, for example), while reciting the Hail Mary, and the Our Father.

The Rosary is not worship or adoration of the Mother of God (such prayer belongs to God alone) but rather a veneration or honoring of Mary for her faithfulness to God's plan for her and her cooperation in the saving mission of her Son.
