Another blogger Jamie reminded me about this month of May being dedicated to Our Blessed Mother Mary. And the best way to reach Mary in prayer is through the rosary.
I prayed the rosary often with my family growing up. I have such positive flashbacks and blessings from my life of prayer. As I grew older, I grew tired and nodded off on occasion. My parents rotated saying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy in song to keep us kids alert - and because I love to sing. (To sing is to pray twice, right!?)
With a family of my own, my mind is racing all the time. I write "pray the rosary" on my school planner yet never get to it. I put a rosary on my car mirror for the long drives, but rarely say it.
In an effort to get with it - I bought a pocket ring rosary to bring with me to the gym. I intend to reach in my pocket while I walk a mile and pray.
I've gotten an ipod, and I am searching for good mp3 of the rosary and chaplet. Anyone here of a good one, or any at all? The chaplet below is just what I want, but can't find the mp3 or the album/artist name.
I need to make the effort, so I can introduce it to my family with ease. Thanks for the reminder, Jamie. May will be a great month to start.
Here are some of my finds:
