Reflections of Family and Faith
"The family that prays together stays together." - Venerable Patrick Peyton
about the rosary | pray the rosary
The Rosary has had a long history and has gone through many stages of development. The use of prayer beads precedes the time of Christ. Hindus used them to help keep track of prayers said throughout the day. In the Christian tradition, early monastic orders would pray the 150 Psalms daily.
As the clock struck a new hour I could hear my great-grandmother’s voice whispering, “Remember to say, ‘I love you sweet Jesus,’ every time you hear chimes welcome another hour of the day.” It was little practices like these that taught me as a young child how subtle prayer can grow into something powerful.
