Things are only going to get worse.

"It's always darkest before the dawn."
.
I don't know what is wrong with me lately - I think I care - but it's almost as if I don't.  I wonder if I lost my mind?
.
Anyway...
.
I care, I really do. 
.
Pray the rosary however. 
.
I'm not kidding - you can obtain anything by the prayers of the holy rosary.  If you don't know how to pray - pray the rosary.  If you don't know how to meditate - pray the rosary.  If you can't get to Mass - pray the rosary.  If you want to overcome sin - pray the rosary.  If you want to overcome sexual sin - pray the rosary.  If you want to stop doing drugs and drinking - pray the rosary.  If you are the world's biggest loser - pray the rosary.  If you want to reform your life - pray the rosary.  If you want to love your neighbor - especially if they are your enemies - pray the rosary.  If you want to be a priest or a nun - pray the rosary.  If you want to teach all nations - pray the rosary.  If you want peace - pray the rosary.  And while the world is falling down all around you and if it seems the Church is filled with devils - pray the rosary.  If you want to know God and find favor with God - pray the rosary.  No matter who or what you are, pray the rosary.  By the prayers of the rosary you can obtain everything you ask for.  By the prayers of the rosary you can scale any wall the demons erect against you.  If you seek repentance and conversion - pray the rosary.  If you seek to advance in the spiritual life - pray the rosary.  If you seek perfection and union with God - pray the rosary.
.
Don't worry - pray the rosary.
.
Every day pray the rosary, and if you can, pray more than one.  Use a tape recording or a rosary CD in your car - just pray it.  Don't distract yourself with how you are praying or give up if you become distracted and all of that kind of stuff - just keep praying - you'll learn.
.
Our Lady grants signal graces to those who pray her rosary.
.
Pray without ceasing, this is how you will attain eternal life.

  7. Terry--Thanks so much for your promotion of the rosary..not too many people, and not too many men especially, are in love with the rosary. I think that there is still the perception that it is an "old ladies" prayer. I have it on my iPod and enjoy saying it as I do my evening walk.

    A few days ago I asked for prayers for my coworker Jan...I saw her today and she says thanks to everyone for praying for her..she is absolutely amazed that there are all these people out there that don't know her at all taking the time to pray for her..

    God Bless you all... Sara

  9. You are echoing the Servant of God, Sr. Lucia of the Immaculate Heart, of Fatima.
    The Rosary is so wonderful, so powerful, such intimacy with Jesus and Mary.
    Thanks for the reminder!
    Yes, pray the Rosary every day, more than one if you can. Especially for the lost souls, the brazen sinners, the dissenters and rebellious sons and daughters, as Pope Benedict has said, within the Church.
    That is apostolic activity "par excellence"...absolutely.
