Praying the Holy Rosary is a special time to share with one’s family members and other families as well. During the year dedicated to St. Joseph, praying the Rosary as a family is also a concrete way of obtaining plenary indulgence. In any case, “this can do immense good for our families”. (AL 318)
With this hope, I invite you all to use this rosary prepared on the occasion of the "Amoris Laetitia Family" Year so that we do not miss the opportunity to reinforce our love for Jesus and Mary, our heavenly Mother. The meditations are brief, taken from Amoris Laetitia and are accompanied by short questions and images that can help you reflect in faith, even with children.
May the Lord bless you and the Holy Family of Nazareth accompany you, so that you may render your domestic Churches cenacles of prayer for spreading Mary's love throughout the world.
Cardinal Kevin Farrell
Prefect of the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life
The Rosary for the Family has been carefully created by the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network and the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life. Our team is delighted with this partnership in order to help families to pray and to pray as a family.
The Rosary is available for Amazon Kindle and in the Google Play Books store. Furthermore, the Rosary can be downloaded for free as an EPUB, MOBI or PDF through our website https://www.popesprayer.va

The Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network is a pontifical work with the mission of mobilizing Catholics through prayer and action, in the face of the challenges confronting humanity and the mission of the Church. These challenges are addressed in the form of prayer intentions entrusted by the Pope to the entire Church. Its mission is inscribed in the dynamic of the Heart of Jesus: a mission of compassion for the world. This work was founded in 1844 as the Apostleship of Prayer. It is present in 89 countries and is made up of more than 22 million Catholics. It includes a youth branch, the EYM: Eucharistic Youth Movement. In 2018, the Pope constituted this ecclesial service as a Pontifical Society to underscore the universal nature of this apostleship and the need we all have to pray more, and with heartfelt sincerity. In 2020 he approved its new statutes as Vatican Foundation. Its international director is Father Frédéric Fornos, SJ. More information at: https://www.popesprayer.va
