Fr. Paul wrote:
“…the chief purpose of meditation is to bring you into contact with God… Reliving the Rosary mysteries by faith, hope and love brings you into this contact with Christ. He is the object of your meditations; you relive the details of His life in His presence; and thus you give Him the opportunity to make you the object of His attention and goodness, as were the people who walked the earth with Him, and whom you see in the mysteries. …So faithfully attend “the most efficacious school of Christian life” – your Rosary, the school of all virtues.”
[From Rosary Meditations Introduction: The Life of Jesus by Mary, Talk 2, 1951]
In these turbulent days of social moral upheaval, we often pray the Rosary in reparation for offences against God, as Our Lady's weapon against evil, in intercession for the triumph of good, for specific intentions dear to our hearts, and many laudable intentions. Fr. Paul gives us a fresh approach of meditating on the Rosary as a type of Lectio Divina on the life of Jesus and Mary in which we allow Christ to conform our interior to His in the grace of the virtues. Try it and share your experience.
