Video: Abide in the hearts of Jesus and Mary through the Rosary

A Reflection on the Rosary by one of our Sisters.

Reflection: My experience of praying the Rosary

Disposed from childhood to praying the
Rosary, it has grown with me over the years or perhaps it would be more true to
say I鈥檝e grown with it. A prayer for all seasons of life, it has been my
mainstay. I think of the structure of the rosary, the saying of the beads as a
kind of enclosure, creating and protecting a sacred space, a shelter, within
which Mary and I meet with Jesus on a daily basis and she shows unto me the
blessed fruit of her womb, JESUS. This is a place where our friendship has
developed, has deepened, as I have come to understand the constancy of these
two friends of mine and the depth of God鈥檚 love revealed to me through the
life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

The simple act of taking up the beads, by virtue of habit, now聽 speaks to my mind, heart and body聽 at a level below consciousness, perhaps somewhat […]

Reflection: What the Rosary means to me

Pope
St John Paul II called the rosary his favourite prayer.  While the Mass is my favourite prayer,
the rosary is not far behind in my preference. 
If for any reason on a rare occasion I fail to say the rosary, then I
cannot sleep until I say it in full.

The
rosary is mostly centred on Jesus and Mary so for that reason, it is very
precious to me:  Jesus who is Alpha and
Omega, and Mary who is His Mother.  In
the company of these two very important people, I am always happy.

Each
mystery reveals some aspect of the life of Jesus or Mary.  In this prayer, I find my joy for Jesus
because one of us 鈥 like us in all but sin 鈥 my solace, my strength, my
comfort, my encouragement, above all my hope in a future of eternal life.  As I pray the rosary, I find I can draw from
all the various mysteries the grace […]

Video: Rosary for Vocations

On the First Friday of every month we have a special Holy Hour (7.30p.m. to 8.30p.m.) for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life. This Hour includes the Rosary. Since October is the month of the Rosary we have decided to share the Reflections that accompanied the Rosary for this month’s Holy Hour.

Third Sunday of Advent – Gaudate Sunday 鈥 2013

 The day when we celebrate the birth of Jesus over two thousand years ago, is drawing very close. The Church鈥檚 Advent Liturgy is unbelievably rich in helping us to reflect and pray on this unfathomable mystery of God鈥檚 stupendous gift to us of His only begotten Son.In today鈥檚 Gospel from St. Matthew, we read: 鈥楯ohn the Baptist in his prison heard what Jesus was doing鈥. St. Matthew says 鈥榟is prison鈥 not just 鈥榩rison鈥.  This leads us to reflect on how all of us can be in some kind of prison at one time or another in our lives 鈥 the prison of fear, of insecurity, selfishness, depression, pride, prejudice, illness, unbelief, poor self image 鈥 the list is endless.  Whatever it may be, we too, like John the Baptist, can hear in the Gospels, what Jesus said and did, and of course, we hear him in the teaching of […]

The Rosary – our Dominican heritage

As October draws to a close it seems fitting to call to mind once again the powerful gift entrusted to us in the Holy Rosary, this extraordinary Gospel prayer in which is so beautifully intertwined our Contemplative gaze on God and our Apostolic outreach to the world and its needs.One of the most appealing aspects of the Rosary is its versatility. It is truly a prayer for all seasons of life, all stages of growth, all moods and humours.Through it we can be brought into wrapt attention, lost in God, as the rhythmic cadence of the repetitive Hail Mary stills our bodies, quietens our minds and brings us into the depths of our own being where God simply isand we are simply present with Him.There are other times when the mysteries themselves hold our attention, coming alive for us. These are times of great reflective fruitfulness when new insights […]

The Rosary and Dominican Nuns

The following is a short reflection on my vocation as a contemplative Dominican nun, in the light of the five joyful mysteries of the Rosary – text of a presentation given recently to a group of young people .The AnnunciationSt Thomas Aquinas likes to maintain that Jesus was the first Dominican, and I鈥檓 not saying that he was wrong! But we know that St Dominic established the nuns before his brother preachers, and in the first joyful mystery, we see Mary, called by God, invited to be His mother, to be the one through whom He would come into the world, and give Himself – entirely – to us and for us. You see, Mary 鈥 before Jesus!I was thinking about this over the past while, and I think it is true to say that joining the Legion of Mary was the first thing I did for myself, […]
