I know protestants don’t understand why we pray the rosary. Or for anyone who does not understand why, let me help explain. Then let me know what you think.
I won’t go through every single prayer of the rosary but here is an idea of how and why.
We have mysteries.
We will start with the joyful mysteries.
First we say the Our Father, then ten Hail Mary’s. But there is a method to our madness:D
The first joyful mystery is the Annunciation, Which is Mary saying yes to God.
Now through these ten Hail Mary’s and one Our Father we think of how we are called to surrender our heart to God and do his will. You keep thinking of that.
Next the Visitation, When she visits her cousin Elizabeth. It humility. Can you imagine the Mother or GOD serving her cousin, We think how we need to help others. humble oneself.
Next is the Birth of Jesus. The son of GOD, born in a stable. It teaches us to detach oneself from material things in this world.
Next the Presentation, when Mary submits here child to the Law of Moses. It teaches us to be obedient to the laws. We must obey them today also.
Next Finding Jesus in the temple. Jesus in the temple, It teaches us knowledge does not come from just a book, it is a true Gift from God, Remember the teachers were teaching Jesus, next thing you see HE a CHILD was teaching them.
That’s pretty much it few more prayers and it over. But your mind is really concentrating on these things.
Will show another mystery later.
There are 4.
You rotate days.
But what you do is put yourself there, and try to live it out all day. So far, what do you think?
Will show more later.
