    I don't pray the Anglican Rosary as much as I do with the Dominican one. I prefer the latter simply because my parish endorses it!

    I also use the Dominican Rosary with prayers in Elizabethan BCP style. But I do not use the Luminous mysteries as I believe they are an unnecessary innovation. The original Psalter did'nt have 200 Psalms, right?

    I started praying the Catholic rosary recently. I have found it to be very meaningful, and I don't see the prayers as being non-Orthodox. I know some Catholic converts to Orthodoxy who still pray the rosary. Of course I still have my prayer rope to use with the Jesus Prayer.

    P.S. I found a site where you can pray the rosary with others online at the same time or by yourself. A priest leads the prayers (recorded of course, not live):

    I am not a fan of much of modernistic liturgies, but the Luminous Mysteries are actually quite beautiful, and I find them helpful in my own spiritual life. Plus, I suppose that Ordinary Time is one of my more relishable seasons of the Christian year. They sequence rather beautifully to me, from Joyful, to Luminous, to Sorrowful, to Glorious.
