The Mysteries of the Holy Rosary

The Mysteries of the Rosary - The Trick to Memorizing them!

Praying with the Mysteries of the Rosary is a wonderful way to meditate on the life of Christ and his church. I enjoy using the mysteries as a way of deepening my prayer, and if you haven't make it part of yours, I encourage you to do so. New to praying the Rosary? Here's our favorite guide to learning. 

It took me some time actually get the Mysteries of the Rosary memorized, and I wanted to explain a quick memory trick that helped me understand which Mysteries are prayed on which day.
