Today is the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.
The "telling of the beads" has been popular among Catholics for centuries. The 150 Hail Marys reflect the 150 Psalms, used in monastic prayer.
The Rosary wraps you in the life of Christ through the woman he chose to be his mother.
It is comforting.
It is powerful.
The Rosary is an accessible prayer
when you have no bible,
when you have no energy,
when you have no words.
The Rosary can be said while lying down, sitting, kneeling, walking or even driving. It can even be said without a Rosary.
There are rosary bracelets, rosary rings, and rosary CDs. We need never be without the Rosary, a reminder that God is always ready to hear our prayers.
