Real Men of Mary


Real Men Pray The Rosary (RMPTR) derives its mission from Pope John Paul II’s call for us to “promote the Rosary with conviction.” As part of that mission, RMPTR has encountered individuals and groups who pray the Rosary with conviction.and inspire many of us to love praying and especially praying the Rosary.


Beginning with the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God (January 1) 2011 and on Marian feast days thereafter, RMPTR will announce its selection of “Real Men of Mary” for that period. The recognition is intended to cast a light upon those individuals who are carrying the gospel message and the loving touch of Mary to others by promoting the Rosary with that conviction which our beloved and Venerable Pope John Paul II identified.

RMPTR has, in turn, conducted over 35 Rosary-tyings and taught hundreds of people the same method of making these durable prayer tools.
