To aid you in praying the Rosary, the Catholic Church has designated days of the week on which to pray each of the Mysteries of the Rosary. The order in which the Rosary is prayed can also vary depending on the season of the church, such as Lent and Advent. Below is a quick guide to what Rosary is today and which mysteries of the Rosary to pray on each day of the week.
The cycle of the mysteries follows the rhythm of the liturgical year observed by the Catholic Church. These prayers beautifully accompany the various seasons within the Church year. Therefore we adjust slightly during the seasons of Christmas and Lent. Below is a simple table of the days the Rosary is prayed during the church seasons.
