How do you meditate on a dolor when you only have the length of one Hail Mary? The rosary decades give us sufficient time, but the above chaplet only gives little time.
I have to say, this forum has been the most critical, naysaying, negative, full of scruples place I have come across. No matter how much someone tries to bring up something good on here there is always someone to tear it down.
This devotion is not to take away from the rosary. I say the rosary as well. This is a commonly practiced and widespread devotion that is approved and very efficacious.
