Declared an important aid to prayer by the Catholic Church, the rosary is indeed an utensil for literally rattling off endless repetitions. As usual, Mary plays an essential role in the prayer of the Rosary.

The rosary consists of a chain with numerous beads or balls of different sizes lined up in a row. A short chain with a final cross is attached to it. In its own way, the rosary is already a sign of identification for Catholics or Mary worshipers.
Instead of addressing God as a father in prayer, the Catholic Church instructs its followers to babble out a prayer formula in what appears to be an endless loop. This ritual is limited by the number of beads. The focus is neither on the father nor on his son Jesus Christ, but rather on Mother Mary, who is exalted above everything else. She deserves by far the greatest attention in the rosary prayer.
This necklace has neither flowers nor thorns. A total of 59 pearls are lined up. Of these, 55 beads are divided into 50 smaller and 5 larger ones. A large bead connects the wreath to the smaller chain and this in turn has 3 beads strung together with the final cross. The name “Rose” comes from the many legends surrounding Maria, which some clerics pulled out of their fingers at some point in time. Because the Bible contains nothing of such fairy tales. One of the properties or titles attributed to Mary by the Catholic Church is the “mystical rose”.
The ritual with the rosary, which is reminiscent of a mantra, must be carried out by the Catholic according to a precisely defined sequence. Before entering into the Catholic mantra, the start sequence is first in line and this begins with the cross.
This starting sequence consists of the sign of the cross while quoting the formula: “In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”. This context alone is a mystery. If a “prayer” is to follow afterwards and this in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, one involuntarily asks oneself to whom or what the “prayer” is actually addressed. Praying to the Father in His own name would make no sense. To pray to the father and to do so in the name of Jesus Christ makes sense and is even described as such by Jesus Christ himself. Examples are: John 14:13-14, John 15:16, John 16:23-24-26. But this is not the intention of this rosary ritual.
The rosary ritual can also be celebrated in similar variants. But the principle of the mantra remains.
The next step in praying the rosary is to recite the “Apostles Creed”. This is the Catholic variant of the so-called Apostolicum, in which “the Holy Catholic Church” should be believed. However. The next step begins with touching the first (big) pearl after the cross and this in turn initiates the “Our Father”. Then Maria comes into play. With the next three small beads follows an “Ave Maria” with a different appendix in relation to Jesus:
The interjection reads: “Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”
Following this, before the first bead of the great chain is touched, comes the formula, “Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, so now, and always and forever. Amen,” and immediately after that it repeats “Lord’s Prayer”. This double formulation is done on each of the 4 large beads on the large chain.
An “Ave Maria” is to be said on each of the following small pearls, followed by one of the following “secrets”.:
Ten connected pearls make a “set”. At the end of each sentence follows a repeated “Glory to the Father”
The question inevitably arises as to whether a Catholic who celebrates in this way has ever asked himself what this nonsense is actually about? Worshiping the dead is pure spiritism and a blatant violation of the First and Second Commandments (the real Second Commandment!). The numerous appeals made by Maria are therefore completely out of the question. God the Father is a personal God who also listens without any noise or endless repetition. Jesus Himself gave instructions on how to pray to the Father (Luke 11). The recitation of the rosary evokes the practices of the Baal worshipers on Mount Carmel, in the presence of the prophet Elijah. The “inglorious” end of these Baal priests can be read in 1 Kings chapter 18.
The answer is short: nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Instead, there are clear statements about the practice of these rituals, such as in Matthew 6:7-8:
In addition, there is the clear celebration of the Maria cult, which is based on the pagan template of the worship of an Egyptian “goddess” Isis.
Not only does the Roman Catholic Church create a “divinity” out of her with the adoration of Mary and thus transgresses the 1st commandment, but also place her as “Co-redeemer” at least alongside, if not as “Mother of God” above Jesus Christ. Pope John Paul II said about praying the Rosary:
“Although the repeated Ave Maria prayer is addressed directly to Mary, the act of love is ultimately addressed to Jesus, with her and through her.”
In addition, the gospel clearly states that death on earth means a “sleep of soul” and not the detachment of an immortal soul from the body. So the dead are worshiped who do not exist as a spirit, soul or in any other form. In addition to the veneration of images, which is forbidden according to the 2nd commandment, the Church of Rome and its followers practice pure spiritualism. The blasphemies of this church know none limits.
A similar ritual includes, above all, crawling up sacred stairs accompanied by similar mantras every Good Friday. One of the most famous staircases is the Scala Santa in Rome. There are also replicas, so that Catholics can also abuse their original knees on such copies. The church has also prepared a program for this, which can be worked through at each individual stage. For those who want to do this, there are instructions here.
The true gospel is so simple and easy to understand. Such rituals, reminiscent of shamanic practices, are completely foreign to the Bible, except to state that they are an abomination to God. It is therefore easy to see from these unspeakable practices such as praying the rosary that the more meaningless or false a teaching is, the greater and more extensive are the rituals to be celebrated around an erroneous religion.
