The rosary

  • I have no idea if there are any limits on praying with the rosary. 
    Yesterday I prayed a lot on the rosary with many intentions. I did more than 5 decades. Many more than just 5. 
    Is it possible for me to pray on the rosary wrongly or depend too much on it?
    And how may I bring more glory(?) or honor to our Mother Mary?
    I fear being impositional with this and of doing something wrong with the rosary.

  • As long as you're praying with the rosary I don't think there is anything you could do wrong.

    As to bringing more glory to Mary.....well, as De Montfort says "to Jesus through Mary" so I guess the closer you get to her Son the more honour and glory you'd give to Mary. 
    After all isn't that what she really wants?

    Too many people STOP at the rosary.

  • Didn't Padre Pio say several dozen rosaries a day?  So, no, I don't think so ... unless someone got neurotic or scrupulous about it.

    Many times when someone came to visit Padre Pio, he would ask,"How many decades did it take you?" He wasn't talking about years he was talking about decades of the rosary.

  • I try to pray 20 decades of the rosary every day. Sometimes I pray 30 or 40 decades.

  • This occurred to me today (Friday).  I do not have the mysteries memorized, and will not use my phone while I drive. Is it somehow wrong of me to not pray the sorrowful mysteries, and instead pray for souls in purgatory? That is while I am driving?
    Is there somewhere that I can find out (for lack of better verbiage) protocols on the rosary? I.e. what intentions when and how, etc?

  • Cruiser, you can buy Cd's or DVD's of the Rosary that you could play while driving. Just make sure you get the Traditional Rosary, i.e. it should not have something called the Luminous Mysteries.

     Feast of the Holy Rosary
    7 October

    In its present form, the rosary was made known to the world by St Dominic at the time of the struggles with the Albigensians. Apart from the signal defeat of the Albigensian heretics at the battle of Muret in 1213 attributed to St Dominic’s recitation of the Rosary, Heaven has rewarded the faith of those who had recourse to this devotion in times of special danger.

    The naval victory of Lepanto gained by Don John of Austria over the Turkish fleet in October 1571, is a marvelous example of the effectiveness of the Holy Rosary.  St Pius V thereupon ordered that a commemoration of the Rosary should be made, and Gregory XIII in 1573 allowed this feast to be kept in all churches which possessed an altar dedicated to the Holy Rosary.

    In 1671 this festival was extended to Spain, and after Prince Eugene’s victory over the Turks at Peterwardein, Hungary, on the feast of our Lady of the Snows, 1716, the feast of the Holy Rosary was extended to the universal Church.

    Leo XIII con­secrated October to this devotion and added to the Litany of Loreto the invocation "Queen of the Most Holy Rosary". Today, in every church in which the Rosary confraternity has been duly erected, a plenary indulgence toties quoties is granted upon certain conditions to all who visit the Rosary chapel or statue of Our Lady. This has been called the "Portiuncula" of the Rosary.
      

    The diadem which the Church offers first to the august Queen of Heaven, is rightly composed of the triple crown of these sanctifying mysteries, the causes of her joy, of her sorrow, and of her glory.
