If you are a Catholic, you are most likely familiar with the Rosary. In fact, many Catholics would agree that praying for Mary’s intercession can be a powerful part of our faith life. Yet, how many of us actually pray on a daily basis? Can you remember the last time you knelt down and meditated on the mysteries of Christ’s life, asking for the grace to faithfully live your life?
We know that prayer brings us closer to God and often brings peace into our hearts – but we just don’t seem to have the time to fit it in. We spend the 15 minutes that it takes to pray the Rosary doing other things – flipping through our iPhones or watching commercials in between television shows.
Fifteen minutes is not much to devote to praying to the God who not only made us, but also gave His life for us. As Fr. Hathaway explains in this short video, praying the Rosary is definitely worth the commitment!
These pilgrimage events (starting with one this Sunday, March 27 at Holy Trinity Church in Gainesville at 7 p.m.), outlined in the video and on this web page, are opportunities to reacquaint yourself with the Rosary. Consider making this devotion a priority in your life – remember that God can never be outdone in generosity!
