Hello Everyone
Read my story of the Rosary at world At this site you will find the full text of my most recent thoughts on the Rosary. The Rosary is a kind of University of prayer. What I mean, is that it is not just a once off formula of prayer--the same for everyone. Some folk will be content with saying the vocal prayers slowly and with sincerity. They may well enter into a deep contemplative spirit with these heavenly-sent prayers. Others will want to study the mysteries and turn them over in their minds and imagination. Again there will be those who can no longer cope with the detail of pictured scenes or complicated thoughts. They just want to linger in love with the Lord and be nursed by the Blessed Mother.
The picture at the top has been given to me by my fellow Dominican, Fr. Donagh O'Shea. He is the Director of the Retreat House in Tallaght and a world renowned teacher of contemplative prayer and leads people in the ways of stillness and silence.
