First, Re:footnote #3: I want to state that the 'Apostle's Creed'and the 'Hail, Holy Queen' are always listed as part of the Rosary. Could you please state where your information comes from?
Second I want to thank you and applaud your efforts in this entry. It's my favorite devotion. You did a nice job.

I was the sub-ed here, not the author, but here is my . From what I remember, the creed/hail holy queen are included as a matter of tradition, but it's still considered saying the rosary without them.
Myself, I've never managed to memorize the Hail Holy Queen.

Hello, Raymond and Mikey!
What an unexpected entry... Thanks!
Salve Regina is beautiful and very easy to remember in Latin...

I was at church yesterday and people were saying the rosary during that interlude between reconciliation and when mass starts, and I felt conspicuously confused during the hail holy queen. One of these days I will just need to make a point of learning it.

I've got to admit, the more I look, every site that talks about the prayers of the Rosary will say something like "....at the end of the last decade...." or "....and traditionally, after the last decade...." or some other ambiguous statement. Traditionally, around here you never hear a rRsary without the "Hail, Holy Queen" followed by the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel.
Yes, Salve Regina is great in Latin. I spent 7 years in the pre-Vatican II Church serving Mass. I could say the entire Rosary in Latin, but no one does that around here any more, though. It would be nice. I do have a CD of the late John Paul II saying the Rosary in Latin. That's nice.

Where I am, back in the 1980-s one could go to a Latin mass daily, the Rosary was also in Latin, which was good, as the congregation here is always multinational.
Salve Regina is, as I found, easy to remember when one feels pretty desperate and needs help...You could say one for me, Mikey...

It's so kind of you, Raymond . Not that I am particularly desperate at the moment, thankfully...Do you remember, you were one of the first people I wrote to here, your PS seemed so inviting. I've since adopted this smiley for prayer . There are some people I can use it with.
More thanks,and a

Everyone can use prayer. Being disabled, I have time on my hands and a great opportunity for daily Mass and rosary. Further, I make knotted cord rosaries to give away so I get a chance to use my latest creation.
