INDIVIDUALIZING A POPULAR DEVOTION LIKE THE ROSARY: KOSHER OR NOT KOSHER, THAT IS THE QUESTION
I pray the Holy Rosary about 30 minutes into my exercise routine. I always use the various mysteries of the Holy Rosary on their proper day. But today is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of Our Blessed Lady. So I decided to personalize or individualize my meditations for the Holy Rosary this morning by substituting other meditations.
I chose the following meditations:
1. The Immaculate Conception
2. The Nativity of our Blessed Lady
3. Her Presentation in the Temple
4. The Annunciation
5. The Nativity
I could have chosen others and in fact I was tempted to eliminate the Presentation of Mary in the Temple so that I could conclude with her Glorious Assumption.
Kosher or not Kosher, that is the question!
