I have been trying to heed His Excellency Bishop Williamson's advice to pray three Rosaries a day. Sometimes I struggle. Sometimes my mind wanders off. Sometimes I neglect intentions.
Every time I fall short I try to renew the commitment and dedication to this devotion.
I want my prayers to be more grateful, adorational, meditative, and intentional.
I have accumulated so many prayer intentions and petitions for others, for friends, family, for souls in purgatory, and for myself, but I am completely aimless in how I direct my mind during prayer.
Sadly, I was so poorly formed in the Novus Ordo that I only recently memorized the Rosary. I am still not sure that I am reciting the mysteries the correct way or meditating on them the way that I should. For instance, I have not memorized the fruits of the Mysteries of the Rosary yet.
However, if I do any research I am bound to find all kinds of post-Vatican II nonsense. So (1 Thess 5:21) I am turning to CathInfo. Hopefully, someone here can direct me to some sound Church teaching on prayer.
My grandfather used to say a prayer for the dead after grace each time we sat down to eat. Now I can't find that prayer. That is one tradition that I wish I would have paid more attention to before he passed away. God willing I will be able to bring my family back to the true Catholic faith.
Pray for me and my family. (My wife has not yet come around to tradition and so we need your prayers). Know that I will be praying for all of you.
