In his introduction, Cardinal Rigali said, "Welcome, and thank you for joining me in lifting up this great prayer of the rosary as a gift through Mary our Mother to her son, Jesus Christ. The rosary is one of the most beloved and distinctively Catholic devotions we possess. Tradition holds that the rosary was given by Mary to Saint Dominic as a way to meditate on the mysteries of Jesus' life as experienced by her. In the rosary, we reflect on Mary as the mother of Jesus and of us all. Mary leads us to Jesus and a greater love for Him."

This unique technology is a tool that allows the faithful to pray the rosary with Cardinal Rigali anytime of day. All the prayers and the Luminous Mysteries are included on the site and make it easy to pray along with Cardinal Rigali and the students.
