    At the risk of being Redundant as Scott1 thread on the Rosary contains much truth and good will, I'd just like to ask a few more question about Our Lady and the Rosary, I'd like to leave this thread open for others if the Mods are cool with that.

    1) What did have the Apparitions told us about the Rosary, I personally pray the Fatima prayer but anything else I should add to my daily devotion?

    2)Best way to pray to rosary, I often like to wander while I pray it but I don't know if I get the full force of the Mysteries that way, should I listen to a hymn? Browse google images? Eye's closed in silence?

    3)Any need things you add to your rosary? Any general tips on how to mediate properly?

    I may ask more questions and will accept any rebuke or advice :D

    One thing would be that, it is a powerful prayer that unites people ("The family that prays together, stays together"- Fr. Patrick Payton. and yeah, there's a "community rosary" prayer as well,where people are gathered and say the rosary together) and is a very powerful prayer against Satan and his minions.
    Pray from the heart, not merely saying or thinking the prayers/mysteries. If you do it that way then it's like you're just studying or having a recitation. Remember what Jesus said about praying in "many words" and"empty praises (or phrases??)". It would have no difference.

    Answered already in question 2.:p

    No, but you can add any worthy prayer you want.

    2)Best way to pray to rosary, I often like to wander while I pray it but I don't know if I get the full force of the Mysteries that way, should I listen to a hymn? Browse google images? Eye's closed in silence?

    I like Virtual Rosary You download a program that gives you pics for each decade, soft background music, scripture for each "Hail Mary", and a prayer cast feature that lets you submit your petitions so others from around the world can see it, and you see others and pray for them as well. You move to the next prayer with a click of the mouse. The appropriate mystery is automatically set for each day. It can sit on your desktop for easy retrieval.

    3)Any need things you add to your rosary? Any general tips on how to mediate properly?

    Imagine you are present with each mystery. Don't worry about wandering because you are still praying with your body.
