Easter in the garden
The passage of time

Variety returns to the rosary

Over the last few months I've been trying to say the rosary several times a week.  I've not fully made it a daily habit, but I'm continuing to experience and explore it.

One of the things that I found very challenging in Lent was being limited to the Sorrowful Mysteries, which was getting really monotonous.  I even brought that up at Reconciliation and especially during the last two weeks, having the other sets of mysteries was something I was really looking forward to.

Monday was great, but today of course we were back to the Sorrowful Mysteries.  It didn't bother me as much, though, since I know other ones are on tap for tomorrow and Thursday.

Why did I start saying them?  Over many years I was told by many Catholics that it was a powerful weapon in the spiritual war against evil.  As times darkened, I figured I was a fool to leave it sitting unused in the prayer arsenal.

Having tried it, I have to say it is quite effective.  The last couple of months have been challenging in various ways, but the rosary brings me calmness, particularly right after I finish it.

I can't claim it will fix everything that ails you, but even saying them occasionally seems to make a big difference.  It is absolutely worth a try.
