View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Great "St. Anthony Messenger" Rosary Article

There's a great article about beginning to pray the Rosary again in the May issue of St. Anthony Messenger - "Rediscovering the Rosary" by James Rurak.

The fishing/Rosary analogy resonated with me - as did the idea of the rosary being a link with his parents.

"The Rosary's a lot like this. The prayers themselves are beautiful. They are like casting a line out. You seek an adventuresome prize, namely, a conversation with God.

"... Just as casting your line into the water makes it possible to catch a fish, praying the Rosary creates a space to listen to God."
