Hi Mike,

I have a question regarding the Rosary in Spanish. I've looked at a few web sites and have seen minor differences in translations, none that would affect the meaning, just little words here and there.

  • Is there an official Spanish Rosary or does it matter as long as what is being said is proper?

I speak Spanish, and do some translating, and I know when it comes to translations, one can take a bit of artistic license with certain words as long as it doesn't change any of the true meaning.

For example, some words flow better than others but mean the same thing.

Hi Tim,

Other than what I found on the Vatican web site, No, I don't think there is an official Spanish language Rosary.

The Vatican has their web site translated into eight languages. Once you choose your native language, just type in Rosary in the search box in the upper right-hand corner of the page.

I think it's safe to say though, that Our Blessed Lord will not reject a Spanish prayer translated incorrectly. God reads the heart : )

Take care,

Hope this answers your question!
