Invite a saint to pray the Rosary with you

If you are struggling to pray the Rosary, try inviting a saint to pray with you.

Praying the Rosary can often be difficult for us, as we can become distracted by our many responsibilities.

Not only that, the Rosary can even seem boring to many of us, and we would rather do something else with our time.

One way to enrich our time of praying the Rosary is to pray it with a saint in Heaven.

This could be a canonized saint, or someone we firmly believe is in Heaven. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church explains, saints remain powerful intercessors.

The intercession of the saints. “Being more closely united to Christ, those who dwell in heaven fix the whole Church more firmly in holiness. . . . They do not cease to intercede with the Father for us, as they proffer the merits which they acquired on earth through the one mediator between God and men, Christ Jesus . . . . So by their fraternal concern is our weakness greatly helped.”

CCC 956

The saints will gladly join us in praying the Rosary from their place in Heaven. Even though we won’t be able to see them and likely won’t feel their presence, we may be surprised at the invisible grace that we receive from this practice.

The next time you pray the Rosary, consider inviting a saint to pray with you!
