What the Rosary means to me … 10
Now, that’s not to say that it’s always terribly easy to say the Rosary well. Personally, I often find myself thinking about the essay I’m meant to be writing, or what to make when it’s my turn to cook for the brethren on Sunday. But that’s not a reason to give up and say the Rosary is just not really for me. Rather, that difficulty reminds me that ‘we do not know how to pray as we ought’ (Rom. 8:26), and makes it even more important to ask Mary our Mother to pray for me: if we pray the Rosary even when it’s difficult and ask persistently for our Lady’s prayers, she will and does help us to grow in our love of God, and also of the Rosary, by which we particularly honour her.
