In the past month or so, we’ve covered topics around the Rosary quite a few times. Hopefully, by now, we can see its importance and its benefits for our souls and others. But, all that being said, it doesn’t make saying it any easier.
Let’s be frank, a daily Rosary is difficult. Sure on paper, it doesn’t sound that bad – 15-20 minutes a day. But, in practice, there are 101 other things to do, we’re tired, we’re busy, we don’t feel like it, we’ll just do it tomorrow, etc. The list of excuses can certainly go on infinitely.
But, when we find ourselves struggling to muster up the willpower to grab the blessed beads, let’s remember these words from St. Louis De Montfort: “Always remember that the best Rosary is the one with the most merit, and there is more merit in praying when it is hard than when it is easy.”
Those times when it seems so tough, so difficult to get it in – those are the times when it matters most. Those are the times when we can show our love and devotion to Christ and His Mother. Even though we don’t feel it, those are the best rosaries.
