I started a new series on my blog where I go in depth on each of Mary’s 15 promises she made to St. Dominic for those who pray the rosary. I’m on #2 right now. I read a lot about people who are looking for answers or signs to their prayers so maybe some of you will appreciate my thoughts on signal graces.

I think people often place too much energy looking for overt signs to the point where they aren’t experiencing signal graces, but looking for justifications. If you have a big, life-changing decision then it’s only natural to look for any sign that you are making the right choice. I think signal graces manifest themselves as a more internal and almost intangible feeling and not something external. In my experience, a signal grace is more of a sense of peace or confidence that comes when you allow God to help you make the right choice. It is such a subtle feeling that I can’t even begin to describe it with my clumsy prose. But that subtlety also highlights the importance of rosary meditation because without that heightened sense of awareness of God’s influence in your life, you may not notice it through the “noise” of daily life.
