As a recent convert, I am sometimes a little bit confused on some things, what to do, when, why! There is such a lot to learn. I have started trying to pray the rosary, but wonder if when you do it for someone you are praying for, do you still pray it with the relevent mystery in mind, or can you just say teh prayers while thinking of the person that you want to pray for? I mean, recite the prayers of the rosary but meditate on the person that you want to pray for, or do this as well as meditate on the mysteries? I am confused about what people mean when they say they will say the rosary for someone.
And, I can never remember the inbetween prayers, and the Hail Holy Queen - of course I know the actual prayers, our father, hail mary, glory be - I just need to use a book for the others, then worry it detracts from what I am trying to do!!! I feel a little bit embarrassed to ask in my parish, although I know that I would get some help with it, but feel like I should know! I really want to honour our lady as well and think that the best way is to do the rosary properly - I worry if I do it wrong I am not honouring her properly. What other ways can I honour her? Sorry for the long post! Any help is much appreciated. x
