    Hi guys,
    I say the rosary each day and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy plus the prayers to St. Michael, the Archangel as well as a few other short prayers of mercy or devotion, such as the Jesus prayer and the prayer of St. Teresa of Avila. Thank you for teaching us more about the rosary and its progressive history. As you guys mentioned, it is considered a weapon of spiritual warfare against the devil. I totally believe that. I feel a spiritual calmness when I pray the rosary and make sure I put aside time to do so every day. It is considered an added grace to pray with others so I make sure I pray along with either EWTN, Catholic TV or Keith Nester. Among them there are 5 different times during a course of a day to stop and pray the rosary. I have my father’s rosary as a religious memento and family heirloom, but the one I use came from a sister who went to Medjagore. (I probably killed the spelling.)

    I was inspired to pray by my Guardian Angel as I just woke up one day and decided to discipline myself for the 20 minutes or so it takes, and started the spiritual practice. I no longer find it a long process. I find it peaceful too. It is a time for meditation. Previous to that awakening I had been estranged from the Blessed Mother but no more. (RS, I forget the Luminous mysteries once in a while too but remember all the other ones.) I didn’t know there were critics out there against the addition of the Luminous mysteries. They are beautiful and bring Jesus closer to us.

    “God is a being than which nothing greater can be conceived.” St. Anselm of Canterbury
    “When we pray we speak to God, but when we read God speaks to us.” St. Jerome

    Stay safe and stay healthy,
    P.S. Nice haircut Brian Scheel. You no longer look like a wild monk coming in from a desert retreat.

    St. George Preca (1957) pre vatican II, had the done the Mystery of Light (Luminous Mysterious), which John Paul II promoted.

    Can you tell us something more about Jesus prayer?

    The rosary you use as graphic art looks just like one I use daily–gifted to me nearly 25 years ago.

    Thank you for this episode on the rosary. May I just let you know that I feel the bobble head statues are a little distracting. Blessings, Deb

  6. Interesting how I began making rosaries. I gave my First Communion rosary to my daughter which she kept in her car. Her car was stolen. Then one evening as I was getting out of my car a thief approached me and snatched my hand bag in which I had a beautiful sterling silver sapphire blue Swarovski beaded rosary. I got sooo angry that I actually attempted to run after the thief and then decided that it was crazy to do so because he may hurt me. At that time, I said to myself: “One of these days, I am going to make my own rosary”. As a result, of being disabled, I had time on my hands and decided to make rosaries. I decided that sacramentals should be as beautiful as possible. Today my rosaries are available on my website http://www.miraculousbeads.com

    I waited to watch this today…the Feast of the Holy Rosary. I pray the Rosary every day. I have my Mom’s Rosary…she has since gone to heaven. After hearing the Archbishop of San Francisco plight…I immediately began a 7 day Rosary Novena for him and his parishes. Do you have any follow ups???? I love the Rosary and I say the mysteries in order, Joyful, Luminous! Sorrowful, and Glorious. I don’t follow specific days that are recommended. I love the Rosary ❤️ I love to think of each mystery …like the Visitation…I think of Mary newly pregnant and walking to the next town to see Elizabeth….feeling I don’t think I could do that. I love to think of stories for each mystery. Please do respond if there has been an improvement in San Francisco. Thank you. I loved today’s show.

    I feel like i’ve failed my kids completely by not making them go to church as teens but I thought they were fighting me don’t force them or they will give up all together. Like so many people today they have fallen away and my son in his thirties told me don’t go there mom or you will be out of my life. He married a woman with bad values. Now he says he has no faith he is an athiest and God was created by the kings and queens to control the pesants. I’m crushed. My father taught me it’s ok to question and so i did but in the end I love the catholic faiith. It has the most respect for human life despite the bad seeds that exist it also tought me that to strive to be the best person would always be a better world to live in and that heals me. He won’t hear anything from me and I don’t want to lose him . He came back from the millitary years later spouting all kinds of things I couldn’t believe . He’s angry at God so he rejects him and he says if there were a God he wouldn’t make a world like this. Is there anything I could say to him about why it is ok to believe in god. He thinks it’s a control method by men and he’s angry at the government for all it is doing evil.

  11. I love the rosary but would like to know if I only pray pray one mystery a day am I praying incorrectly?
    May God Bless you Ryan’s and Father Richard thank you for a great show

    I chanced upon this episode tonight. The words by Louis de Montfort brought back memories of the time when my Mom was in her last days in life, she was very driven to pray the Rosary. We prayed with her several times a day until she died. I have the Rosary she used by my bedside which I use when I pray the Rosary in my room. Also, like Fr. Pagano – I keep the Rosary my grandmother gave me so many years ago. It is a wooden Rosary she brought back from her trip to Rome many years ago which I always carried with me. My purse was snatched by some teenagers while I was walking in around 1994 or 1995 and my Rosary was in it. Over a year after, I received a call from Caltrans that the street cleaners found my purse by the bushes off the freeway. When I got my purse back, it was such a tremendous relief that my Rosary was still in it. From then on, I have it put away safely. I now carry the Rosary I got from Ephesus with me in my purse which I use when I pray the Rosary when I am travelling.
