The catholic prayer based upon the bible which focuses on the life events of Mary: the mother of Jesus and Jesus Christ is defined as Rosary. This is the physical method to count the number of Hail Mary as the mysteries are contemplated. As the prayers are recited the fingers are moved along the beads. The basic purpose of the rosary is to keep in memory the events and principles or the mysteries in the history based on salvation, and to express thanks and praise to God. On the rosary are reflected twenty mysteries which are further divided into five luminous mysteries, five glorious mysteries, five sorrowful mysteries and five joyful mysteries.
As per the pope St. John Paul, the joyful mysteries are said on Monday and Saturday, luminous on Thursday and sorrowful on Tuesday and Friday, and the glorious on Wednesday and Sunday (with this exception: Sundays of Christmas season - The Joyful; Sundays of Lent - Sorrowful). The Hail Mary is recited on ten beads within a decade, while on the large bead the Lord’s Prayer is recited.
