[CATHOLIC CAUCUS] The 3:30 Beads!
Vanity ^ | 5-14-10 | MLizzy

Posted on 05/14/2010 10:11:57 AM PDT by mlizzy

A statue of the Virgin Mary stands at Most Holy Rosary Church in Syracuse.The 3:30 Beads

A few days back, on May 10, Irisshlass commented to me;

Maybe we Catholics here can form a prayer group and at a certain hour of the day or night, we all say our rosaries in our home. Even though we are not together we are in heart ...
Although I am not a speck Irish, my husband's roots (he's a "Grogan-O'Toole") have worn off on me a bit, and I could hardly think of denyin' the suggestion of an "Irisshlass." So without further ado[s], here are the "rules."

Join us in saying a Rosary every day at 3:30 p.m. (your time zone). The Rosary will be recited for the conversion of the world -- add in your own personal intentions as well, and we, as a group then, will *all* be praying for those intentions. If you can't make the 3:30 time slot, pray when you can and alert Our Lady as to your "group." If praying the entire Rosary is too daunting a task, just say one Decade; one Our Father, ten Hail Marys, one Glory Be. If that's too much, just one Hail Mary (for starters!) is fine too.

Fr. Corapi's Virtual Rosary site which is very easy to follow: Link.
Another site with the full Rosary on tape form in addition to Gregorian Chant, Chaplet of Divine Mercy (which can be said at 3:00). Link.

Keep in mind you can say the Rosary at all times that aren't distracting. That is to say, walking/walking the family pet, driving/driving to or from work, swimming/running, etc.

I can also say Our Lady gets the credit here...She put that thought in my head, I have no doubt. She is constantly calling us all to pray.

"Some people are so foolish that they think they can go through life without the help of the Blessed Mother. Love the Madonna and pray the Rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother" --St. Padre Pio.

When Fr. Corapi is on EWTN, it's one of the rare times my husband and I watch TV together (that isn't sports related!) because there are closed-captions on Fr. Corapi (which I need), but not so with many of the other shows on EWTN. We both think the world of him too ...

Maximilian Kolbe by Michael D. O'BrienAll graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother" --St. Padre Pio -- I didn't know that...it makes sense though, because She gave us Jesus.

Early in his priesthood, Fr. Maximilian surrendered himself "as a tool in the hands of Mary as she labors to bring all souls to Christ." He and six friends founded the Militia of the Immaculata (Crusade of Mary Immaculate). They were devoted to the conversion of sinners, opposition to freemasonry ... and spread the wearing of the Miraculous Medal (which they chose to wear as their habit). They were devoted to Our Lady and the path to Christ. --Link.

St. Louis de Montfort“Mary is the fruitful Virgin, and in all the souls in which she comes to dwell she causes to flourish purity of heart and body, rightness of intention and abundance of good works. Do not imagine that Mary, the most fruitful of creatures who gave birth to a God, remains barren in a faithful soul. It will be she who makes the soul live incessantly for Jesus Christ, and will make Jesus live in the soul” --St. Louis De Montfort, (True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin).

Excellent!! I went for a walk with the dogs and said the Rosary ... while wearing my "GET HOLY OR DIE TRYING" T-shirt. I've had a couple people over the months that I've worn it, compliment me (give me the thumbs up) on it ...

Yes, it's high enough quality too (pretty thick actually). I've had mine since Christmas, and I've worn it quite a bit, and it is still in fine shape!:):) Link.

I carry a Miraculous Medal or two in my back pocket, to bring out and hold during key moments of the day. Overkill? Well, I do know that the devil would like you to think so.

I enjoyed it. I told a Priest friend of mine about the 4 Miraculous Medals..He said, why not just one? I didn't know how to reply to that, but I'm glad I had the 4.

PhotobucketAnyone wishing to join the Irisshlass and myself for a daily group Rosary, please let us know by way of commentary. Like low-impact aerobic exercise (where all you have to do is pretty much stand there and breathe), one Hail Mary a day at approximately 3:30 p.m. (give or take twelve hours:)) will get you into this fine group. Of course, the full four mysteries a day is excellent as well, or anything in between ... Dear Lord Jesus, convert our country, and the whole wide world as well!

I'm off to join my daughter (she's home from college!) in swimming some laps, where I attempt to do the "Underwater Rosary." Ha! It's more like one reeeeeeally long "Agony in the Garden" ('cuz I can't count off tens and swim and the same time) ... but Mary appreciates, she sure does appreciate ...

I don’t believe it! My girls swam since they were six. I coached HS swimming..my one daughter swam for USA since 7th grade, she was allowed to swim for the HS then. We moved, the coaching is not great here and you had to be a teacher in order to coach. She almost went back to swimming in college but has transferred. We have sooooooooo much in common is mindblowing!

Boy, that's for sure. After putting up the picture of the swimmer (which is no relation), I never thought in a million years you'd answer as you have. Therese started competitively swimming at 8 and swam on ISI/high school teams until she graduated. She didn't pursue it in college though (lots and lots of work!), because she wanted to play polo instead. She made it as a starter her freshman year; a great effort! I used to swim a little when I was healthier, then I had to give it up (inner ear probs), but lately, through prayer and good holistic meds, I'm back in the pool ... (This photo IS my daughter (left), btw.) What were your daughters' best events? (Please don't say 100/200 breast or 200/400 IM.) :):)

Yes, much doctoring/surgeries/hospital stays/bed rest (don't think I'll ever master a flip turn:)). I've finally found some answers though, but it took quite some time ... [looking for wood to knock on ...]

I have back problems, so I don’t do the flip either. I just swim freestyle with a Pull Buoy between my legs and just take my time.

Good morning Irisshlass (and group members, lurkers too!); Our son's graduation ceremony went as planned unceremoniously actually (the school didn't even have the "big screens" lit up showing a close-up of the graduate as he/she walked up to receive their diploma. The difference between his ceremony (he's in engineering) and my older son's ceremony (he graduated from art school) were like night and day with the way they were "produced," but the hotel room my son booked for my DH and me made us smile, as when we went up to the front desk to get the entrance key, we saw that our room number was 330. As in 3:30 Beads! And we *did* get our Rosary recitations in this weekend ... (The Rosary is great to recite during long road trips.):)

I found this doing a search.

What is a Signal Grace?Signal Graces are signs sent by God to help us make the right decisions in life. Moses saw a burning bush as a sign from God, and other people received signs from God daily. Signal graces usually come about as subtle hints to help keep us moving in the right direction - these signs are truly gifts from God.

Remember - there is no such thing as a coincidence, everything happens for a reason! By praying the rosary you will be more conscious of the way that God tries to help you and speak to you every day.

Pope Benedict reciting the Rosary.This afternoon, I’ve rediscovered how nice it is to go to the gym and walk around the track with rosary in hand! It’s like getting a physical workout and a spiritual workout all at once! I’ve heard lots of Catholic friends say they pray the Rosary while walking. It’s clearly good enough for Pope Benedict. Link.

And if you want to speed things up ... Running the Rosary, by Tom O'Toole.

I forgot to add the caption to the picture of the Pope ... here it is:
Pope Benedict XVI (L) walks with his personal secretary Georg Gaenswein to the Maison of Saint Bernard in Martigny, in the Swiss part of the Gran San Bernardo mountain in Switzerland, July 19, 2006.
Sure looks beautiful, doesn't it?
