An Introduction to the Rosary

The Rosary has a story to tell, just like the Gospels and Holy Writ. It tells of suffering, trials, defeat, and resurrection, all through the course of human history.

There are two basic types of Rosaries: the standard length and the Tridentine. The Tridentine is almost the same length as the 10 Commandments, but with an extra bed or two added for the cross. Both are beautiful and reasonably priced. My personal favorite is the Tridentine.

If you are considering whether or not to get a Rosary, consider the importance of the Rosary in your life. There are many benefits to receiving a rosary.

When you are starting a daily devotion, you will find that on some days you are extremely busy and can’t always devote the time necessary to meditate. Getting a rosary in a box allows you to meditate at anytime, because it is easy to carry and set up on your desk or in your hand, and fits easily into your pocket.

Once you have meditated, you can use each piece of the rosary for a different purpose. You can put the six beads together for a rosary for prayer, or just for the passion. Or you can choose to use the six beads for the cross, or just one for contemplation.

I started using the rosary as an anchor, whenever I got hung up by thoughts of sin. It helped me remember the Christian code of ethics, and also helped me overcome my addiction to alcohol.

When I was in my final year of high school, I heard a sermon on the Rosary by one of my best friends. He was explaining why the rosary was so important to the history of the faith, and why it would always be relevant to the future of the faith.

His best friend had told him a story about how he had gone to meet a woman, and that she had started to get really upset, because she couldn’t stand how much he seemed to love her. A few months later, her father had died, and she would never see him again.

His friend explained that on the eighth day of the Passion, the Cross would be set up, and then Mary, surrounded by her apostles, would sit down at the feet of Jesus and begin the Rosary. In the Rosary, she would remind herself of everything that Jesus had taught her over the years, and that he would not leave her, nor abandon her. Over the course of the week, she would repeat the Lord’s Prayer over, until finally, on the tenth day, when he had shown up, and got tired of hearing the Lord’s Prayer, he had asked Jesus to forgive her, and that he would die by his side.

I liked the story because I can relate it to my own life. I am not good at following Christian rules, but I have learned how to live by the rules, and recite the Lord’s Prayer every day. It helps me to remember that Jesus is “I AM” in me, and that He will not leave me.
