Some thoughts for how to squeeze in that daily Rosary for busy mothers.
I joined the Confraternity of the Rosary, which obligates me to TRY to say the 15 mysteries in one week. Some days I just cannot get that Rosary prayed.
I started breaking up my Rosary. While lying in bed or at sitting down to breakfast, I pray the beginning of the Rosary.
When I sit down to lunch I pray the first mystery. If I have a quiet few minutes to pray that second mystery, I do that.
Praying in front of a hot meal waiting to be eaten is also willpower training and a patience builder. This is also an opportunity when my young children a preoccupied with eating and are relatively quiet. They get to listen to the Rosary being prayed.
I don’t worry about the rest of the mysteries until the next day they are prayed. For instance, on Monday, I pray the beginning of the Rosary, and the first two Joyous mysteries. I don’t pray the 3rd, 4th, and 5th mysteries until Thursday when the Joyous mysteries are prayed again.
In this way, the entire 15 decades of the Rosary are prayed in one week, and my obligation to the Confraternity has been fulfilled. (You don’t fall into sin by not fulfilling the obligation.)
