Changing the Way We Pray

Last edited 20th November 2017

I have always struggled with praying the Rosary. Repeating the same prayer over and over again is monotonous and the prayers are so familiar that praying them can feel dry, meaningless and a bit mechanical.

Last edited 12th October 2017

More often than not when I ask someone how they are doing, the reply is “busy”. There’s no denying that we live in a culture obsessed with busyness. At times, it can almost seem that our self-worth is determined by the number of activities we are involved in.
