scriptural rosary?
#14
Anything can help on the path to a good meditation whether it's a scripture verse in between every Ave, a full on written reflection about a given mystery or the use of a picture/statue/icon. Even with the best preparation sometimes your prayer is just dry and there is no real meditation at all. There are just many techniques to use that all lead to the same thing--mental prayer and contemplation (or they ideally lead to that). Another thing I read once and it has worked for me on occasion is to close your eyes right after saying the Our Father and spend about two or three minutes thinking about the mystery you are about to pray about. It is just strange sometimes how I can have a good meditation and at others nothing I do seems to work. The scriptural rosary is great for me on the times when I just can't meditate at all but want to keep the ideas flowing through my mind about a given mystery.  I suppose that we pray the rosary well when we set out to do so with attention and devotion and persevere in it even when we cannot seem to meditate at all.
