Difficulty with the rosary
#26
I also struggle with the Rosary...but I think Satan does his best to keep us from saying it every day precisely because it is such a powerful prayer. I have the old blue Pietá prayer booklet and in it are these 15 promises of Our Lady to those who recite Her Rosary every day. (link)

[b]1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall receive signal graces.
[i][A signal grace may be a simple sign in daily life that answers a question made in prayer or points towards God’s will. For example, seeing a rose after finishing a novena to St. Therese of Lisieux could be considered a signal grace. Signal graces are often subtle or seemingly coincidental.][/i][/b]


[b]2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.[/b]

[b]3. The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.[/b]

[b]4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.[/b]
[b]5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary shall not perish.
[i][In other words, anyone who faithfully prays the Rosary and asks for Mary’s intercession will not go to hell.][/i][/b]


[b]6. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered and never overwhelmed by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just he shall grow in grace and become worthy of eternal life. [i][An unprovided death means dying while not in a state of grace (that is, in dying with unconfessed mortal sin in the soul). The Blessed Mother promises that anyone who regularly prays the Rosary, and earnestly tries to live according to God’s will, will be spiritually prepared when their time of death comes.][/i][/b]

[b]7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.[/b]

[b]8. Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have, during their life and at their death, the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.[/b]

[b]9. I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.[/b]

[b]10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in heaven.[/b]

[b]11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.[/b]

[b]12. All those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.[/b]

[b]13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.[/b]

[b]14. All who recite the Rosary are my sons and daughters, brothers and sisters of my only son Jesus Christ.[/b]

[b]15. Devotion of my Rosary is a great sign of predestination[i][That is, devotion to the Rosary is a good indication that the devotee is on the path to Heaven.][/i][/b]



I like to listen to the Rosary while I wash dishes or fold laundry (below is a link to my favorite Latin Rosary). Perhaps this is not the most reverent way to pray it, but I do try to meditate while I'm working, and I do think Our Lord understands that sometimes we have to multitask. 

St. Joseph, Terror of Demons, Pillar of Families, Glory of Domestic Life, Pray for Us!

I post frankly and frequently about my struggles with Catholic teaching on sexuality and NFP. If this bothers you, kindly keep scrolling and place me on your Ignore list. I will not be even slightly offended.
