Do you suffer with continual distractions during your rosaries despite your best efforts to be free of them? Does it frustrate you? Exasperate you?
It’s a common problem for us Catholics. But there is a solution.
Robert, over a year ago, I started praying our family rosary using the Rosary Meditation Booklet.
I diligently focused each night on the beautiful and inspiring paintings of Dias Tavares for each mystery. And the brief snippets of St. Louis de Montfort’s thought-provoking words for each bead are a huge help.
The Rosary Meditation Booklet
IMMEDIATELY made me pray the Rosary much better.
This free booklet will help you too.
In his book The Secret of the Rosary, St. Louis de Montfort affirms that “To be guilty of willful distractions during prayer would show a great lack of respect and reverence; it would make our Rosaries fruitless and would make us guilty of sin.”
Now, I know you’re not guilty of “willful distractions,” but doesn’t it make sense that we should do everything we can not to lose the potentially great merit of the rosaries we pray?
Pray better rosaries.
And St. Louis goes even further: “How can we expect God to listen to us if we ourselves do not pay attention to what we are saying? How can we expect Him to be pleased if, while in the presence of His tremendous majesty, we give in to distraction just as children run after butterflies? People who do this forfeit Almighty God’s blessings which are then changed into curses because they have been praying disrespectfully.”
And that’s the sentiment of one of the greatest Marian saints and apostles of the Rosary…
…when I read that I knew I had to do something…God would certainly hold me culpable for the words of St. Louis that He had put in front of me.
I think the same may be true for all of us.
Solve any problem you might have of distractions during the Rosary here. Otherwise we run a terrible risk…again, in The Secret of the Rosary, St. Louis says: “…put yourself in the presence of God and imagine that Almighty God and His Blessed Mother are watching you and that your Guardian Angel is standing at your right hand, taking your Hail Marys, if they are well said, and using them like roses to make crowns for Jesus and Mary.”
“But remember, that at your left hand lurks the devil, ready to pounce upon every Hail Mary that comes his way and to write it down in his deadly notebook. And be sure that he will snatch every single one of your Hail Marys that you have not said attentively, devoutly, and with reverence.”
At last, experience
the exhilarating feeling of
a rosary well prayed.
May Our Lady of the Rosary help us all to an ever increasing devotion to her Immaculate Heart!
