Dedicated to Mary,
Auxilium Christianorum — the Most Holy Mother of God, Help
of Christians, and the most perfect of all God's creation
The Holy Rosary
is to be prayed — not simply recited. And so it is prayed
here, not to the end of praying it as quickly as one can, but as thoughtfully
and prayerfully as one can.
You will not "get through" the 5 Mysteries
quickly in the Rosary prayed below. It is prayed as one speaking to
another, as the soul speaks to God and to Mary ... who are listening.
Very often, when we pray, is at a tempo that we would never use in speaking
with a friend, let alone one beloved. Such conversations are an intimate
sharing ... not rote recitations. Even if we repeat ourselves, it is
with a new emphasis. Who ever tires of being told that they are loved?
The words are the same but the moment is new. Only in a desperate parting
are such words spoken quickly.
One single "Hail Mary" prayed from the heart
is worth a thousand spoken only upon the lips. Yes, in prayer, especially
repetitive prayer, our minds tend to wander, to drift away from the
one to whom we are praying. This is our human frailty, and God understands
this. It is our perseverance in prayer that matters, despite
all distractions. Let us, then, as Saint Paul encourages us,
"Pray without ceasing"
(1 Thessalonians 5:17).
