Please forgive me but this is an excellent article showing how corruption took place in the Church. Note that the monks started out by reciting from memory all 150 Psalms. This was indeed admirable and very scriptural! But people found this to be too difficult (unless you're a monk) so then they prayed about the 150 Psalms. As time marched on even this became too difficult (probably because they didn't know what the 150 Psalms stated) so then it ended up being 150 praises of Mary.
Now please tell me how does "meditating on the word" as this title suggest shows any relationship to "praises of Mary". It seems the Rosery is far removed from the original intent of our monks.
I'm still looking thru this piece to find something scriptural...Can't find it...Can't locate any mysteries either...What's up with that??? The link you provided for the scriptural prayers to Mary didn't work...
There are some things left out of this article in how we say the Rosary today. Prayers have been added as time has gone on and that was not mentioned. The 150 mysteries - well, is there a list? Most of us only know the 15 given to us so long ago and the five JPII added.
Thank you. Our Adult Ed coordinator just had some little books for sale too. I’ll look and post the publisher later.
When we say the Rosary for funerals, we always say a Scriptural Rosary.
I have even written one.
