Father, some people call five decades a rosary. Others, 15 decades. Then JPII came up with another mystery, comprising another 5 decades. Not that it isn't all beautiful, but what exactly is the official rosary??? When Our Lady asked us to pray the rosary, which version are we to understand this to be? Thanks, Father.

Marie, I expect the traditional 5 decade rosary is meant, and the choice of the Mysteries is made by the prayer. God bless. Fr. Bob Levis
