First, the daily Rosary gives your family a daily “God pause.”
We have found over the years that when we pray the Rosary, we grow closer and stronger as a family —almost automatically. This goes for partial rosaries (sometimes we only say a decade, or three), hurried rosaries, bored rosaries, in-the-car rosaries, distracted rosaries, or any rosary.
Why? St. John Paul II describes why in his letter on the Rosary: “To pray the Rosary for children, and even more, with children, training them from their earliest years to experience this daily ‘pause for prayer’ with the family … is a spiritual aid which should not be underestimated.”
The Rosary stops a busy family in its tracks, quiets the world’s noise, gathers us together and focuses us on God and not ourselves. This does wonders for a family psychologically and emotionally. But it does far more.
