About This Episode

Praying the Rosary can seem like a daunting task and people often find it difficult. So how can we pray the Rosary more often and even pray it every day? In this episode, we offer inspiration and advice from our own experiences of praying the Rosary.


“No wonder Our Lady has given us a daily prescription of five decades of the Rosary a day, because if each day is directed towards Christ in this way, then our whole life will be, like Mary’s, surrendered to God’s love.”

(Fr Lawrence Lew OP, Mysteries Made Visible)

Final Thought:

“Meditation engages thought, imagination, emotion, and desire. This mobilization of faculties is necessary in order to deepen our convictions of faith, prompt the conversion of our heart, and strengthen our will to follow Christ. Christian prayer tries above all to meditate on the mysteries of Christ, as in lectio divina or the rosary. This form of prayerful reflection is of great value, but Christian prayer should go further: to the knowledge of the love of the Lord Jesus, to union with him.”

(Catechism of the Catholic Church – 2708)

Questions for Reflection:
