I would like to know how people who offer or “say” rosaries for a particular cause actually handle the meditations that are associated with it, while they are saying or praying it.
Is the idea that you are offering the devotion of saying/praying the rosary, in a similar way to the way a mass is offered?
There would need to be no connection between the goal (say, supporting life by saying a rosary at an abortion clinic), and the prayers and meditations of the rosary itself.
I wonder, for example, if people who pray rosaries for souls in purgatory do somehow relate their meditations on the mysteries of the rosary to that intention.
When people use the word “saying”… this always makes me feel as though meditating isn’t involved for the people who do use that word, but I’m sure they do meditate since that’s an integral part of the devotion. It is actually easier for me to establish a deep mood from appreciating or savoring the words of the actual prayers themselves, as I repeat them. I wish this were a valid way of praying the rosary. But of course, it is not.
