A Question Of Preferences
by: Anonymous

The number of decades depend upon whether or not one prays the traditional rosary (which has 15) or includes the Luminous mysteries (which add another 5, making it 20). Our newly blessed Pope John II added the Luminous mysteries.

Your question can pose some problems in it's wording, but to simplify the matter, there are 5 decades to any single mystery, whether or not one prays 15 all in one sitting or 20 of them. The preference to include the newer Luminous mysteries is up to the individual themselves.

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
