“When the recitation of the Rosary combines all elements needed for an effective meditation . . . it can present a significant catechetical opportunity . . .”
Saint John Paul II, Rosarium Virginis Mariae, 17
Handouts with Activities & Meditations on the Mysteries of the Rosary
The Religion Teacher’s Rosary Worksheets for Kids includes handouts to help young people remember and meditate on the mysteries of the Rosary. The activities in this downloadable packet of resources help children learn to go beyond basic recitation of the prayers and enter into a meditation on the mysteries of the Rosary.
As Pope Paul VI wrote, “Without contemplation, the Rosary is a body without a soul, and its recitation runs the risk of becoming a mechanical repetition of formulas, a violation of the admonition of Christ” (Marialis Cultus, 47).
Just because we teach young children or teens, doesn’t mean we can’t teach them to do meditation. The worksheets in this packet of resources will help you teach children of all ages to enter into and connect with the mysteries of the Rosary.
Each mystery of the Rosary (including the Joyful Mysteries, Sorrowful Mysteries, Glorious Mysteries, and Luminous Mysteries) comes with a creative handout to help children enter into a meditation and active reflection on the events of Christ and Mary’s lives.
The worksheets call for a variety of learning and meditation styles inviting students to
- or reflect.
With these worksheets, your students will go beyond rote memorization an recitation of prayers and enter into the mystery of Christ’s life and love for us.
