How to Pray the Our Father Rosary

One Methods:Rosary Prayer

“Pray then in this way: Our Father in heaven …”, (Mt 6:9-13). The ‘Our Father’, taught by Jesus himself, is a unique and foundational Christian prayer. It is also the most beautiful prayer, which can be prayed by everyone, any time and any number of times. There was an ancient practice of praying the Our Father repetitively, which was lost in the second millennium. The Our Father Rosary is a Trinitarian prayer, intended for effective contemplation of the mysteries of salvation, unfolding as Creation, Redemption and Sanctification.


Our Father Rosary is an ecumenical and interreligious prayer for the present period of global migration and mingling of peoples and cultures. There is a deep yearning for harmony amidst social, cultural, linguistic and religious diversity. In such a context, the Christian vision of God as a loving Father provides an effective spiritual source for the creation of a World Family. All humans are sons and daughters in His Son Jesus Christ through the working of the Holy Spirit. “The God whom we Christians believe is the Creator and Father of all, and from him all people are brothers and sisters and form one single family”. (Pope Benedict XVI, at Inter-religious Meet in Assisi, October 27, 2011)


Our Father Rosary is developed by Abraham Ayckara and Jose Palakeel, two missionaries from India as a universal prayer of Christian inspiration for the third millennium.
