What the Rosary means to me ... 6

Thursday, October 23, 2008
Detail of Our Lady of Lourdes praying the RosaryI’ve always found it difficult to pray the Rosary well. Often my mind wanders and I find that I need to pray the Rosary in a group if I am to avoid falling asleep. Still, it was only when I stopped worrying about how badly I pray the Rosary that I started to reap the benefits. It’s a prayer I’ve come to love very much.

I didn’t use to have a particularly strong devotion to Our Lady, but praying the Rosary has really helped me get to know her and to love her. She is our mother who is always inviting us to meet her Son. It doesn’t matter that I’ve never prayed a Hail Mary perfectly, because her prayers are perfect and she carries on praying for us even when our prayers stop.
