So I was reading the thread regarding praying for a boyfriend’s conversion and followed a link to a page full of prayers asking for St. Monica’s intercession including a Chaplet.
Well…reading through the site I came across this little note.
Traditionally the Rosary is prayed clockwise
It grabbed me because for as long as I can remember I’ve always prayed the Rosary counter-clockwise! At the point where I choose a direction, I always go to the right. It just came natural to me. I never knew there was a “traditional” way to go about it.
But I’m sure it ultimately doesn’t matter either way so I’m not going to obsess over how I count my rosary beads. But it did sound like an interesting, light-hearted CAF poll.
(And if this needs to be moved to a more light-hearted section of the forum, please don’t hesitate to do so)
So…when you pray the Rosary, do you count your beads clockwise or counter-clockwise?
