A Catholic prayer, performed with the help of set of beads. They are arranged into five lots of ten (called a decade) with a single bead placed between each decade. The ten beads in the decade are used to count the saying of a prayer called the “Hail Mary”, the isolated beads are used to count two prayers: the “Our Father” and the “Glory be”. The five decades are used to meditate on the major events of the life of Jesus.
