In Catholic tradition, praying the rosary is a Catholic funeral prayer service usually held on the evening prior to the burial of a loved one. The family will use this time to pray the rosary and to receive visitors. The recitation of the Rosary, which lasts about twenty minutes, may be led by a family member or, if desired, by the Priest, Deacon, or Pastor’s designee. When the Rosary is said at a funeral service it is considered an intercessory prayer which asks for Mary's intercession with God so that the deceased may have eternal rest with Him forever. This service is open to anyone wishing to pray together for the deceased.
Below are the prayers that are recited during the rosary.
