What can a person do? Pray the Rosary.

As we watch the news day by day and see the chaos and crisis around the world, it can create a feeling of helplessness. What can the average person do?

Praying the rosary deepens our faith, and strengthens us agains evil.

We watch how world leaders react and we see the failure to accomplish anything meaningful.   Instead of progress, we may see instead greed, corruption, incompetence and lies. We see situations where the will of the people for peace and prosperity is not being enacted, but rather the desires of multi-national corporations, ruling elites, financial institutions and shadowy NGOs.  We see that justice fails, and that evil prevails. Again, what can the average person do?

The answer is prayer.

Light a virtual candle today

While there are various forms of prayer that be invoked, I want to focus specifically now on praying the rosary, prayed with intentions.

It is quite possible to get caught up with 'the cares of this life' and forget the basics of prayer that we have been taught.  The rosary is a very powerful prayer, and if you have not been praying it regularly, it is worth taking an afternoon to become re-acquainted with the rosary. Do a search on the internet for the promises given to those who pray the rosary. Investigate testimonials of those who have used the rosary by using search terms such as 'military victories through the rosary'.   One search leads to another, and as you begin to search out the history of the rosary, you will reignite your vision and faith.

There are many online rosary sites. Some of these allow you to pray in community, or to pray through the rosary in an online version, suitable for a break or lunch at work. Other have prayer aid helps, such as scriptures related to each day's mystery.

In today's world, where the needs are so great, and the inability of government leaders to solve national and international problems is at an all-time high, it behooves the people of God to use the spiritual weapons of our warfare.  One of those is prayer, and one of those prayers is the Rosary, prayed with intentions.

Beginning on Saturday of this past weekend, the phrase made popular by Gene Wilder's character in the 1971 film, "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," "So shines a good deed in a weary world," has been dancing around in my head. I guess it would be logical for me to ... continue reading
