Fr. Mark-Mary discusses how to really pray the Rosary and go deeper than the external mechanics. Primarily it’s about relationship and not simply recitation. Fr. Mark-Mary explains three aspects of the Rosary on which we can contemplate:
The person of Jesus Christ
The words of the prayers, which are Scriptural
The Mysteries, which cover the whole life of Jesus.
There is so much to be found in this beautiful prayer, but its beauty can easily be overlooked. As Pope St. Paul VI said:
“Without contemplation the Rosary is just a body without a soul.”
It does no good to pray the Rosary while your mind and heart are somewhere different. If you’re new to praying the Rosary or have struggled to pray it, maybe just read one of the mysteries in Scripture and pray three Hail Marys. Fall in love with the Rosary little by little if that’s what it takes.
Fr. Mark-Mary is talking about the Rosary all October. Stay tuned for more videos on this powerful prayer.
