At a time of pressures and conflicts in busy families immersed in the digital age, this package of resources below from our partner Catholic News Service can help Catholics, and anyone, deepen their relationship with the Lord through this time-tested devotion. If it’s been a while since you’ve prayed the rosary, here’s a refresher video by a Dominican sister easily guiding the way:
Five reasons the rosary is the perfect prayer for families
The rosary is simple and tactile, it brings peace and, through story, mirrors the rhythms of daily family life, writes Gretchen Crowe. No better prayer is suited to family life than the rosary.
Too distracted to pray the rosary?
In the digital age of rapidly shortening attention spans, distractions can easily crop up when praying the rosary. But it’s still the most user-friendly way to find tweet-sized signposts toward Jesus through Mary.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
