CONFIRMING 
THE HISTORICAL SITES
Have you ever wondered where the 15 mysteries of the rosary actually took place - and if they are remembered today?  The Holy Land - Jerusalem -Nazareth - Bethlehem, yes, but unless you have taken a trip to the Holy Land and seen for yourself, it may be a little more difficult to identify locations. The rosary tells the life of Christ and with actual locations and scripture to confirm this history, it becomes much more alive for us today.
