Struggle with the Rosary — How to Overcome It
Editor’s Note: The Rosary is Our Blessed Mother’s powerful armament against evil. That’s why the devil hates it so much. When Our Lady of Fatima first appeared to the three children in Portugal, she told them to pray the rosary. In all her subsequent visits to them, the one thing she said to them every single time they saw her was “Pray the rosary.” Some are doing that, others are not. Perhaps you, or someone you know, struggles with this beautiful Marian devotion. If the rosary is not currently part of your daily prayer routine, we hope this video will help inspire you to take up this formidable weapon of prayer and meditation.
Oh yes, one more thing: at the end of the video, Dan references rcspiritualdirection.com, our old address years ago. That has, of course, been replaced by SpiritualDirection.com, our current address.
Struggle with the Rosary? Can you help me?
Fr. John Bartunek and Dan Burke talk about struggles with prayers, specifically why some struggle with the rosary and how to overcome these struggles.
Father John Bartunek and Dan Burke discuss the rosary and how it comes from a devotion to the Blessed Mother. Father John talks about the three aspects of devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and her role in our lives. God chose Mary to bring Jesus into this world. And so, she has a role because God wants it that way. Father John explains the role Mary has and what growth in holiness is about. They examine Mary’s example, her presence in our lives and her intercession. From these things Father explains how the rosary makes sense. And, he offers an excellent image of what the rosary is.
