Rosary is a word that always relates to Mother Mary, Jesus’ mother. The word itself is derived from Latin “rosarium” which means garland of roses or even garden of roses.

The Nazareth store offers an eye-catching collection of the rosary which can be included in the catholic gifts category. The store enables one to buy catholic gifts from the comfort of home.

History of rosary
History states that in the 13th century blessed Virgin Mary appeared in the dream of St. Dominic and gifted him the rosary as a part of spreading the teachings of Jesus to save humanity. The small beads which are knotted together to form a beautiful yet powerful rosary are one of the recognized symbols of Christianity along with the crucifix. The Bible doesn’t mention praying using a rosary as this practice was invented in the middle ages. But the important elements in rosary are Biblical and belong to common catholic beliefs. Throughout history, the rosary structure has evolved drastically.
What role does the rosary play in our life?
The original rosary was believed to have 15 decades whereas the modern age rosary has 5 decades. The main function of the rosary is for counting prayers using the beads. The chanting of prayers is done by saying Hail Mary, the sign of cross and glory to God. The four mysteries associated with the rosary are a description of the birth, journey, death, and resurrection of Jesus. The Joyful mystery is the one connected to the joyful news of Jesus' birth whereas the sorrowful mystery is connected to the suffering and death of Jesus. Luminous and glorious mystery describes the resurrection and glories of heaven.
