How I pray the Rosary on this style tenner (three extra Aves and a rosary centre):
I start with the‘I believe’ prayer is offered on the crucifix, then the first Our Father offered on the Pater bead, followed by the three Hail Marys on the first three Aves. The Glory Be is offered on the rosary centre. When the decade is recited, the Our Father is offered on the rosary centre, followed by the ten Hail Marys on the ten Ave beads, the Glory Be at the end of each decade is offered on the medal, you draw your hand back to the rosary centre for the next Our Father of the following decade. When the rosary comes to a completion, the Hail Holy Queen is offered on the medal.
How I pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet on this style tenner:
I use the first three Ave beads for the Our Father, Hail Mary and I Believe. Then the ‘Eternal Father’ prayer to start the decade is offered on the rosary centre, followed by the ten “For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion” prayers. At the end of each decade draw the hand back to the rosary centre again to recite the ‘Eternal Father’ prayer that starts the new decade. At the end of the fifth decade, I draw my hand back to the first of the three Aves to recite the final prayer that is offered three times. “Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.”
