of the Rosary
for you index
Did you ever wonder what the 15 promises of the Blessed Virgin Mary were and where they came from? Or the origin of the prayers that make up the rosary? What is the purpose of praying to Mary when you can go directly to God or Jesus? Why do Catholics feel it such a powerful prayer when all you are doing is repeating the same prayers over and over again?
The rosary prayers come from the mysteries in scripture. You are entering into these mysteries as you walk with Mary in prayer and in this walk, she tells you the story of her son, Jesus. She also interceeds for us - just the same as a friend does when you ask for prayer.

~ ORIGIN of the AVE MARIA ~
THE HAIL MARY COME FROM?
The "Hail Mary" is a prayer of devotion to the blessed Mother Mary and her Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, our savior. The "Hail Mary" prayer comes from the words of the angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary and Elizabeth's greeting to Mary. The "Hail Mary" falls into two parts:
The first part is taken from St. Luke chapter 1, starting at verse 28 and St. Luke chapter one and verse 42, the name of Jesus was added to explain the meaning of these verses taken right out of the Bible. In the middle ages this part of the "Hail Mary" had been said this way for 700 years.
The second part of the "Hail Mary" is a petition: Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and in the hour of our death. Amen. Here we ask the blessed Mother to pray for us. The words "Mother of God" were doctrine settled at the Council at Ephesus in the year 431. In 1495 in the English Calender of Shepherds printed these words to complete the "Hail Mary". asking the Virgin Mother to pray for us in life and at the hour of our death when time changes to eternity.
