Actually the whole month is dedicated to the rosary.This is the one of the best ways to honor Mary.It seems that every time she appears, she asks that we say the rosary.It is a very powerful prayer.
Our family ups our rosary recitation this month and in particular for the cause of life.We say a rosary weekly at our local abortion clinic as part of the 40 Days Campaign.
Something to Do and Pray:
Try to say the rosary more as a family and individually.This should be our simple goal for the month, and each family will carry it out differently.Think about and pray about what ways your family can do this.Here are a few suggestions to get you started:
1)More car rosaries.Even just a decade when you get in.
2)Sunday night rosary.If you do Sunday, then add Wednesday or Friday for this month.
3)Go to an Adoration Chapel (or just the church) once a week to say the rosary.
4)Use a video or CD recording to say the rosary.Kids especially like to watch what’s going on in the mystery—plus, it really is a nice reminder to us of what we are supposed to be meditating on.
On YouTube there are many set to music with pictures or clips from movies.I liked the ones by Mysaviormygod like:(Below)
5)Purchase a rosary coloring book from your Catholic bookstore and let the children color while reciting. (or download and print one from your computer. Just search online or use this site.)
6)Use a children’s rosary book to look at the pictures while saying the rosary.
7)Make a life-size rosary and walk through it while saying the rosary.We’ve done this with chalk on our back patio.
8)We like to say the rosary outside around a fire in the evening.It makes for a peaceful meditative prayer.
Something to Eat:
Purchase some M&M’s and place on a cake in shape of a rosary and you’ve got an instant rosary cake.This is a great dessert to eat on this feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary.
