Rosary Project

Welcome to The Rosary Project!

The Live Twitter Rosary returned beginning March 24, 2020 continuing until I-don’t-know-when, praying for an end to the Coronavirus crisis, and an end to the violence and madness in our country and in our world. Read more at the Rosary Project Live Archives page (updated link).

Welcome, friends, to the Rosary Project! All four sets of Mysteries are here with image galleries for each Mystery, and the Five Special Intentions given by Pope St. John Paul II (aimed at ending the culture of death) are also included.

Be sure to subscribe for updates to this project and the site in general.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

Beginning in 2018 I began scouring the web for images for the Mysteries of the Rosary and the prayers that go with them. I look for a certain type of image, a certain quality, a certain style. I want art from various periods of Christian history, something to show the rich patrimony that we have, and that far too many do not know about or would have no way of seeing other than making their own search, and that takes time that not everybody has.

I’m home most of the time (lung problems, back problems, oy!) so I have plenty of time on my hands to search the web, and a fanatical devotion to exploring and sharing what I’ve found with others. Most of the exploring takes the form of surfing the web these days, and most of the sharing takes the form of tweeting and blogging (until recently, tweeting almost exclusively).

2019

I posted a live Rosary thread on Twitter nightly for several months. That ended on Holy Saturday, April 20, 2019. It was a joyful and glorious ride, and I will always be thankful for those who took that ride along with me. So many people shared their stories and gave me much encouragement. You know who you are. I treasure your friendships, all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Y’all added more to the joy of the daily preparation and the nightly threads than I ever expected. And those of you who prayed along silently, you were prayed for, too. The threads were for ALL. God bless you.

2020

Now we’ve begun a new phase of the project and it has a permanent home here on the blog where it won’t constantly scroll away (and I can edit the inevitable myriad mistakes I make, oy!). I don’t post it nightly anymore but it is available here anytime anyone wants to use it. I’m already making notes on additions to this section, so stay tuned for that.

Together we can pray for conversion of hearts, salvation of souls, and to end abortion and the culture of death that is spreading like cancer throughout the world. I’m glad you’re here and I hope you’ll drop by often. Together we can be united in prayer, and united to the Two Hearts forever.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Savior, pray for us. Amen.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you! Save souls!
