I wasn’t quite sure where this question would fit, so if this is the wrong forum, please accept my apologies.
A few months ago, I purchased a set of the rosary on CD, done by Fr. Benedict Groeschel. I love praying the rosary and find it easier to focus if I can pray with someone else, and the CD’s seem to accomplish the same. Obviously not quite as good as having people praying in the room with you, but I digress.
I got permission to listen to music at work, and assumed that, as long I am not disturbing anyone, then it’s allowed. When I’m listening at work, I’m also praying along on my rosary. However, because I’m at work, I have to actually do work, and that means that I have to pause often to answer questions, or use my computer while praying/listening.
I’ve been a little concerned lately that I might be being disrespectful in listening to the rosary, or praying it, if I cannot give it my full attention. I love listening to the rosary; it is very calming and helps me focus for the rest of the day. However, I would not want to offend Our Lady if this could be construed as “lowering” the rosary. What do you all think about it?
