How to Pray a Better Rosary

Looking to dive deeper into The Rosary?

We all know The Rosary is an important part of our Catholic faith, and you may have even started praying it consistently, but do you know why you’re praying it? It’s not uncommon that we’re taught how to do things and not why to do things, and if we don’t understand the meaning and purpose behind our prayer, it won’t transform our hearts in the ways the Lord wants.

Today, Fr. Mark-Mary shares some tips on how we can pray The Rosary habitually and intentionally.

For a great companion to your deepening in The Rosary, check out Matt Fradd’s Pocket Guide to the Rosary.
