I asked myself when did I start becoming interested or knowing how to pray the Rosary. I remember as a child, after my grandfather passed away, we were at my grandmother’s house in Kansas City. She had an altar in her home, and we were kneeling down praying what I believe was the Rosary. Why wasn’t I sure? Because they were mumbling in Spanish. I heard certain words that sounded like Jesus and the Virgin Mary. My mother always prayed in Spanish, but I prayed in English.
I joined a Rosary group when I lived in New Orleans, and I started a weekly Rosary group in Green Bay, but I didn’t pray the Rosary every day.
The 54 Day Rosary Novena started on the Feast of the Assumption, August 15th. I was hooked after day 7 and knew our students in Faith Formation had to learn and hopefully embrace praying the Rosary.
Every Monday evening at 6 p.m., we meet in the worship area. The students grab their plastic Rosary beads and special Rosary books. We sit by class, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. Before we start, we silently reflect on our personal intentions. Each class prays a decade. Together we all say the other prayers.
This year starts my 5th year as a catechist at SEAS. I pray that we never stop our weekly Rosary, and that our students catch the fever as I did.
