After Vatican II the rosary fell into relative disuse. The same is true for Marian devotions as a whole. But in recent years the rosary has made a comeback, and not just among Catholics. Many Protestants now say the rosary, recognizing it as a truly biblical form of prayer--after all, the prayers that comprise it come mainly from the Bible.

In Roman Catholic practice, the rosary is a circle of beads with a pendant crucifix. The beads are divided into five sets, called decades, composed of one large and ten smaller beads. While fingering the large beads, the person praying says the Lord's Prayer, or Our Father; on the smaller beads, the person recites Hail Mary, or Ave Maria. In between the decades the "Glory be," a doxology, is recited.
