Paul is joining in our May saying of the rosary – in Croatia. Its fantastic how our prayers this month have been said in many different locations as well as at church and home. Here Paul reminds us how we can pray the rosary wherever we are.
“Mark and I are in Croatia at the moment and today I have prayed five decades of the rosary meditating on the joyful mysteries.
The first decade, the mystery of the annunciation I prayed on the hotel balcony looking out over the sea.
The next two, the mystery of the visitation and the mystery of the nativity I prayed in a beautiful albeit rather decrepit old church on the island of Sipan.
The final two, the mystery of the presentation and the mystery of the finding in the temple, I prayed in a tiny chapel on the island of Lopud where we are staying.
I remembered all at St Chrysostoms whilst praying with my old faithful rosary beads given to me by a good friend many years ago. They will be used daily whilst we are here in Croatia and you will be in my intentions.
By the way I also prayed a couple if decades whilst running in the Manchester 10k on Sunday, it kept me going in the boiling weather! ”
So if you are going on holiday don’t forget to pack your rosary, and mingle the beauty of the place with the beauty of prayer!
