This was carried out under the spiritual guidance of Pope St Pius V. Pope St Pius V asked that the Rosary be said publicly to obtain victory. Devotion to the Rosary is important for all Catholics. Below we list 4 Ways You Could Get More Out of The Holy Rosary.

Pray the Holy Rosary in Latin
Latin has been the Sacred Language of the Roman Catholic Church for Centuries. Even in ancient times the people of God had a sacred language in Hebrew. When he published the Compendium to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI asked Catholics to learn their prayers in Latin. Praying the Holy Rosary in Latin is one way to do this.
