The Rosary is a devotion in honor of the Virgin Mary. It consists of a set number of specific prayers. First are the introductory prayers: one Apostles’ Creed (Credo), one Our Father (the Pater Noster or the Lord’s Prayer), three Hail Mary’s (Ave’s), one Glory Be (Gloria Patri).
Between the introductory prayers and the concluding prayer is the meat of the rosary: the decades. Each decade is composed of ten Hail Marys. Each decade is bracketed between an Our Father and a Glory Be, so each decade actually has twelve prayers.
Each decade is devoted to a mystery regarding the life of Jesus or his mother. Here the word mystery refers to a truth of the faith, not to something incomprehensible, as in the line, "It’s a mystery to me!" The twenty mysteries are divided into four groups of five: the Joyful, the Sorrowful, the Glorious, the Luminous. When people speak of "saying the rosary" they usually mean saying any set of five (which takes about fifteen minutes).
