What is urgent is the evangelization of a world that not only does not know the basic aspects of Christian dogma, but in great part has lost even the memory of the cultural elements of Christianity.

                          Pope St. John Paul II


Boston Catholic Journal

I am convinced that the crisis in the Church that we are experiencing today is to a large extent due to the disintegration of the liturgy.

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).

T
he Rosary consists of 5 Mysteries that are divided into 20 decades.
