Saying the Rosary is one of those things that I know is good, and has been recommended many times in various supernatural messages, most famously, Fatima.
Try as I might, my worn out old brain has trouble reciting this prayer AND meditating usefully on the mysteries therein, simultaneously. I always start well, but then forget the words of the Apostle’s Creed, fret about that, stumble over the Fatima prayer, stare at the clock, forget which decade I’m on, count how many beads are left, wonder if I’ve got the right mysteries for the day, and so on.
The only time I’ve come close to saying this prayer well, and benefiting from it, has been during recitation in the company of others. Anyone else found that?
Imagine my joy, when I stumbled across this website:
It’s quite simple and intuitive really. You will be taken through the Rosary in words and pictures, by unirritating voices. You can see how many people around the world are joining in the prayer, and you can also publicly dedicate your Rosary for whatever cause you wish, and see what others are dedicating theirs for.
I fall asleep sometimes to the reassuring sound of this website. It is early days, and I cannot be sure that this is a worthwhile substitute for getting oneself to Church to say this beautiful prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament, with real people that you can see and hear, and know. (Sadly, my own life circumstances prevent me from getting involved in a lot of real life Church activity).
I would love to hear our reader’s opinions on this Rosary site and other electronic prayer aids.
The observant among you may have noticed our new ‘Widget’ at right-> Clicking the picture brings you to a page showing how many people have pledged to pray the Holy Rosary for the Pope. Click on the logo above the picture to be taken to the website where you can sign up to the scheme, and pledge your prayers (for your Bishops too). It is heartwarming to see how many others are joining you in prayer. Pass on the news!
