Has anyone read anything by St. Louis de Montfort - in particular "The Secret of the Rosary?"
I’ve had this particular book in my possession for a number of years, but just recently picked it up to read it, hoping that it would help me in my daily rosary.
Most of the book was pretty good, until I got near the end, where he lays out pretty specifically the ways you should always say the Rosary, with purity of intention, with attention, ignoring or fighting distractions, with reverence, and with various good methods. After reading this, I got really bummed, because I try and fit the Rosary as part of my daily prayer life, but I’m either doing it in bed, or in the car, or at work, when I can fit in the time.
Am I doing anything wrong? I got kinda discouraged, at one point I missed praying the Rosary for a couple of days. I felt that the ones I were doing were so poorly done, that they “didn’t count” if you know what I mean. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!
