How To Focus While Praying The Rosary? (specifically)
by Erica B.
I'm a Catholic girl of thirteen years of age. I want to be closer with God, so about a month ago I decided to pray the Rosary every day. Sadly, I don't have the best attention span. My thoughts race, I think of what I last watched or something around that area. Yet, that was my first time actually saying the Rosary with meaning! I did it for about 13-15 days, most of the time I cried while saying it. I never did actually feel sad, just a little overwhelmed? I got choked up on most of the days. Yet sometime during the prayer when my mind started to wander (after or before crying) I mentally slap
Myself saying to focus for Jesus. I can't help it though!
So today I decided to pray the Rosary ( I just finished) I teared up a bit. See, a couple of months ago my dad decided to just leave us, no word no anything, he rarely picks up his phone and I believe sinning. My mother has certain medical issues and can only get smaller jobs (she is a caretaker) and she is old (51) so it is taking a toll.
My family had always had problems, but it is pretty bad and awkward right now, so I believe my choice is to pray the Rosary as Mother
Mary will never ignore her children alongside with believers of the Lord! So is there any advice? Sorry this is so long...
(Also a long time ago I heard each time you say the Rosary your guardian angel is to the right of you weaving a crown of roses to give to Mary, while the devil is to your left trying to get you to put down your Rosary. Afterwards, I'd like to innocently joke around apologizing to Mary about making a sloppy crown since I mess up my words or daze out often~)
