Thank-you Mlizzy...God Bless You :)
I really like this idea! Also, the idea of just saying a decade at a time is a good one, for those who cant carve out the fifteen minutes or so needed to say a full Rosary. Over a Mon-Fri, theyll have said a full Rosary, and could do another full one over the weekend!As a coincidence [but I don't *really* believe in them :)], Fr. Corapi said Saturday night on EWTN during one of his talks, to pray the Rosary, pray the Rosary, pray the Rosary ... but if you can't say the full one, say a decade, and if you can't do that, say just one Hail Mary a day. It brought him back from a 20-year absence from the Church, where he spiraled out of control and eventually was a drug addict, living on the streets. His earthly mother sent him a card with the Hail Mary printed on it, asking him to say the prayer once a day. He decided to do so. He was thankful she sent the card, because even though he was taught in Catholic schools, he had forgotten the words to the Hail Mary. The one Hail Mary a day led to his moving back home, which led to Confession, which led to the Eucharist, and so on ... [I've taken Father's advice, and our entire family -- three are away from the Mass -- started yesterday saying together just one ... Hail Mary!].
I just have to join this group - I love you guys just from reading the posts!
Last night when I said my rosary (I usually cannot pray at 3:30 in the afternoon) I asked the Lord to unite my rosary to the ladies doing the 3:30 beads. I know the Lord can do that, even though it was 9:30 or 10:00 p.m.
As you said MLizzy, just one Hail Mary at 3:30 is helpful. Now if I can just remember! I need to tie a string around my finger or something.

Irish Priests...two have my maiden name :)
I could listen over and over to this song.
This is very beautiful too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGGhO1n5wW0&feature=related
Wow, that does sound very nice ... maybe I should put this on my Rosary site ... I’ll take a look-see on Amazon for it ...
I say mine on the way to work at 8:30 . . . but another one won't hurt! And it takes no time at all to say the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at 3:00 . . . . and my boss thinks I'm a bit strange anyhow.
Please put me on the 3:30 list!Excellent! Welcome! If you're not always able to recite again at 3:30, you can let Mary know the 8:30 one is for "the group." She'll know what you mean ... :):)
Excellent. Thank you!
There is a beautiful Chaplet of Divine Mercy on Catholic TV with the Sisters of Divine Mercy, Boston. Chaplet of Divine Mercy
