Hi. I’m sure you don’t remember me but I posted over a year ago and was having trouble being scrupulous about praying the rosary and saying prayers perfectly.
Well I’m happy to say I’m over that BUT I have one more issue with praying the rosary. I’m being scrupulous about making the sign of the cross completely and correctly in the beginning. I worry if I didn’t make it right then the rosary won’t count.
I know I’m wrong thinking these things but I’d just like some reassurance.
If I don’t make the sign of the cross completely or correctly at the start, does my rosary still count? Like if I somehow forget to touch a spot or miss and not realize it.
If I get distracted by anything when making the sign of the cross; do I have to start over? Like if something random pops into my head. I don’t mean a “bad thought” that people with OCD talk about I just mean anything because I can be kinda ADD at times lol. Does my taking attention away from the sign of the cross mean I should start over?
Thanks! I basically know the answers to these questions, but I’d really appreciate the reassurance.
