Rosary question.

I’m sure this is already posted somewhere. I didnt see it.
Is a rosary still effective if it has to be interrupted &restarted.
If you have to interrupted should you restart, or pickup where you left off?

You can pray the Rosary throughout the day. One decade in the morning, one at lunchtime, etc. You don’t have to restart it. However you should try and prepare a prayer time of day where you are relatively certain you will not be disturbed.

I’ll repeat what I said in the other thread. Saint Padre Pio said that if he had to restart the Rosary every time he got distracted he would never finish a Rosary in his lifetime.

The answer is no you do not have to restart.
