First, a commercial: Years ago an acquaintance who participated on the old Compuserve Catholic Forum started her own online rosary business. She made the most beautiful – and also strongest – rosaries I had ever seen. She suspended her business for a while, but I am happy to report that she has reopened her store and is working again. Queen of Peace Rosaries – Fr. Z endorsed! Wonderful gifts.
The Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary is prayed according to different methods in different parts of the world. For example, in Italy it will usually include a litany at the end. In Germany you will sometimes hear a line about the mystery being prayed interjected into the Hail Mary.
And… to my point… in the English speaking world you will not rarely hear after the Gloria following each decade the addition of a little prayer associated with Fatima:
“O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy. Amen.”
However, not everyone adds this. I, for example, do not.
What I am curious about is… do you add the Fatima prayer when you say the Rosary? This may be in individual or public recitation.
It may be that you do it own way when alone or with one group, and another in other instances.
Just pick then which you prefer.
