A different approach

A while back I sent an e-mail to various friends with the idea described below. The response was so positive, it seemed worthwhile to share it with more persons:

If you find it difficult to meditate on the mysteries of the Rosary as you pray the Rosary, here is my current solution. To the advice of St. Jose María Escriva: “Think about the mystery for a couple of minutes before you begin each decade” I add my rather unorthodox approach which I find very helpful and instructive at the same time.

I pretend I am someone else. Each time I am a different he or she and look at the mystery with their “eyes and ears; minds and heart”. I began by observing the Blessed Mother and Virgin, Mary, and it was the impact of her perspective that gave me the whole idea.
