Rosary - The Rosary (its name comes from the Latin
"rosarium," meaning "crown of roses"), is an important and
traditional devotion of the Roman Catholic Church, combining
prayer and meditation in sequences of ten "Hail Marys," each
sequence being called a decade. A complete Rosary involves
the completion of fifteen (now twenty) decades. (wikipedia)
