The Rosary remains a popular prayer among the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church.

All of the last seven popes have named the Rosary as one of their favorite ways to pray to God.

The Rosary is one of those “timeless” prayers, always relevant no matter the culture or time period.

Here is a slideshow that highlights quotes from each pope and what they had to say about the Rosary.
