In the daily Rosary, Sarah Reinhard gets a reminder that life isn't about being perfect in her own eyes.
One of the most moving moments in PRAY, the beautiful film we have recently released on the life and Mission of Venerable Patrick Peyton, is when Peter and Patty MacEntee tell their Rosary story. They recall that a few years into their marriage, already with a couple of kids, their life got listless and their marriage hard. Peter admits that he didn’t want to let go of the supposed freedom of sports all the time and drinking with his buddies… Patty was feeling left alone… But then Peter says that from watching EWTN he heard of Father Peyton and the importance of praying the Rosary at home… So they decided to try. Peter talks of their first Rosary together… You can see the memory brings tears to his eyes … He said it was really awkward… yet a really intimate moment… They opened themselves to each other – AND, TOGETHER, TO GOD Beautiful. Powerful in a gentle way… They say then that their decision to pray the family Rosary every day saved their marriage and has been one of the most important decisions in their married life.
