“Praying with a rosary, like praying the Daily Office, is a structured form of prayer, but it requires no reading or the flipping of pages. Persons without a book before them or who cannot read, find the rosary a helpful way to pray. A rosary is a string of beads or knots, each representing a simple prayer that can be said from memory. Holding the rosary in your hand, move your fingers from bead to bead, praying the prayer each bead calls for. There are many ways to pray the rosary. Most include multiple repetitions of familiar texts such as the Lord’s Prayer, the Hail Mary, and others. Gestures such as bowing and making the sign of the cross can also be included. Praying the rosary can allay anxieties and calm troubled nerves. The recitation of familiar prayers in a structured manner frees your mind from concern about how you feel and what to say. Those concerns are surrendered to God in the simple act of obedient recitation. Many people pray their rosaries while watching the news or sitting in a hospital room.

Prepare to enter and celebrate the season of Lent…..
Deuteronomy 8:5 – Think about it: Just as a parent disciplines a child, the Lord your God disciplines you for your own good.
1 Corinthians 9:25 – All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize.
