Heard of it two years ago but never really tried it until this month. I also surfed the internet and found a link at 2000hailmarys.org. At first, I really doubted whether I can finish it. Thoughts like, do I have the endurance to pray that long?..will my prayers be heartfelt considering the number of Hail Marys we would be praying? We also made some computation of the time that we would be spending. We were not able to follow the schedule to the letter but we prayed it from 9 am till around 7 in the evening. It was really worth it!
We believed that Mama Mary was truly present when the devotion was being prayed. Our group had a beautiful encounter with Her. That was all our first time to say the devotion and we felt truly blessed for She was with us!!!
For Catholics who haven’t prayed the devotion, just try even just once. Pray for grace to finish it and to say it sincerely. You may be able to share also your wonderful experience
