The Virtual Rosary The Virtual Rosary

We found this wonderful way to pray the Rosary on your own computer or Palm. Easy to download - It will even remind you to pray everyday!

In short, the Rosary is an ancient, beautiful, and powerful prayer of devotion to God through devotion to Mary by means of a series of prayers and meditations on the life of Jesus and Mary. In it we find all that life offers: pains and joys, but also always the hope that only a loving, protecting, saving Father can truly give. The Rosary is a prayer of hope.

Presentation Ministries Presentation Ministries
Presentation Ministries has two components, ministries and home-based communities, which exist to disciple Catholics more deeply for Christ, through teaching the word of God and equipping all for Christian ministry using the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Teachings on the daily eucharistic readings, and encouragement to receive Jesus in daily Holy Communion are emphasized to such an extent that one could cite a secondary influence in the Church as a "daily Mass movement."
Divine Office

It provides the various hours of the days, full text and references to both the four volume and Christian Prayer versions, audio prayed/sung, hymns, free podcast download in iTunes, and ways for multiple types of devices at cost.  Laity and religious alike find it very convenient and easy to use. "It has over 2.8 million visits, over 525,000 people joined in prayer during 2012, with a year-over-year 60% growth."

Circle of Prayer Circle of Prayer
There are so many wonderful websites available telling us about prayer, offering us a variety of different prayers and prayer forms and sites from all religions and denominations, church groups and church organisations under the sun. The purpose of this website is simply a call for people to pray together. But with a bit of a difference! It's asking people of any religion or none all over the world to decide to set aside a few brief minutes a day to join together in prayer.
Ecumenical Rosary Ecumenical Rosary

The Ecumenical Miracle Rosary was first posted on the internet in February of 1999, and it was inspired by the original Most Holy Rosary.  The rosary is a set of prayers and meditations, which covers key moments in the New Testament.

Purgatory: Lest We Forget Purgatory: Lest We Forget is dedicated to the greater glory of God through the relief and release of the Holy Souls from Purgatory. We invite you to enter your Beloveds so that others might pray for their repose.

Apostleship of Prayer Apostleship of Prayer
Truly the Apostleship of Prayer is the Pope’s own “prayer group.” It is, as Pope John Paul II wrote in 1985, “a precious treasure from the Pope’s heart and the Heart of Christ.”
The Journey - Daily Meditations The Journey - Daily Meditations
We’re a group of unpaid volunteers comprised of clergy and secular people who contribute freely from the heart, to further the kingdom of God by sharing some thoughts on scripture, hopefully enflamed by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. We neither seek nor reject financial funding, depending entirely upon God’s Providence for our internet presence. To those of you who have contributed in prayer or in any other way, we sincerely thank you!
