In essence an epitome of the whole Gospel (Catechism of the Catholic Church #971), the Rosary developed originally as a substitute for the Liturgy of the Hours (Divine Office).
The Rosary is a form of meditative prayer. Mediation engages thought, imagination, emotion and desire, deepening our faith, prompting us to conversion of heart and strengthening our will to follow Christ. Most Christian meditation focuses on the mysteries of Christ.
