Fr Gerry O'Shaughnessy SDB and Sr Sr Susan Richert PBVM offer a new way to use your rosary to honour Our Lady in her month of May:
Using your rosary beads – in a different way: Take an event in Mary's life and reflect on it. You might use one event each day and either over 1 decade or 5 decades – say the short refrain on the small beads.
Alternatively, you might wish to say the rosary in the usual way but reflect on these events of Mary's life.
