i used to. i really liked it.
i still make the sign of the cross sometimes.
old habits die hard.
I hope I am doing this correct. This is my first reply. I do not use a rosary but i DO SAY "hail Mary...." I love saying it but I do not experience what you are experiencing. I believe your experience is great. Keep it up. Love and peace.
When I was a Catholic I said the rosary alot, it was mandatory and a tradtion of the church.
No, I take my prayer strait to the Lord in the name of Jesus.
I still pray a rosary daily. For me it is all about finding time for what is important.
That's cool Scarlet. I don't say the Rosary much lately but I used to lead one in a chat room a while back. I thought I smelled roses a couple of times but I could have been imagining it.
Hello Mr Make Money,
You were not imagining it.It is a known fact that when a
person saying the Rosary smells Roses.
The Blessed Virgin Mary is right with you and beside you.
Thankyou for your lovely comment.

The Rosary is a prayer and it is made to mary the mother of Jesus. It is a way for Catholics to pray away their sins.
WOW!!! You've been in the marines for 20 years, and more then likely have been or know someone who has been at war or in some sort of dreadful situation and you've NEVER seen or heard of a Rosary? Stop putting Scarlett Ryan on for the purpose of starting a debate. I'm Lutheran and I've seen people do the Rosary. Certainly in your outstanding world, you have too.
This is a nice thread topic Scarlet. If you write a Hub about the Rosary you might want to include some of the gifts that have been acquired from praying it. Actually with this you could make it a series of Hubs. Not many realize why the Communists left Austria without force in the 1950s. But the people of Austria do, about a tenth of the population prayed the Rosary daily so they'd leave. We have a good mother and we can always ask her to pray for us. There are a lot of stories about what has been obtained from praying the Rosary. Here's some research material if you want to include it in your Hubs.

Let us know if you write about the Rosary.
PS I had heard that Elvis Presley sang a song about Mary and the Rosary so a while back I searched Youtube to see if anyone had uploaded it but I couldn't find it then. But I just found it.
Elvis Presley Miracle Of The Rosary
The Rosary is prayers said on a pair of Rosary Beads.
The first prayer is said holding the cross.
You make the sign of the cross first
You then say the Lord's Prayer
Then you say the Glory to the Father Prayer
Then you say the Apostles creed Prayer
Then you say Oh my Jesus forgive us our sins Prayer
On the first three beads you say 3 Hail Mary's
Then you say the our Father
Then you say 10 Hail Mary's on the 10 beads
You continue right around the beads till you arrive
back at the cross.
Maybe i will create a hub to better explain how to say
the Rosary.Watch this space.
Thankyou for your interest.

p.s. The whole Rosary takes exactly 40 minutes to complete.
Wow that's alot of Prayers to cover the same God' I'm sorry please forgive me that I use, or is more to that, in that its not just a prayer for forgiveness but represents something?
It sure is a lot of prayers.And i say them every day.
It represent the whole life of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
It is worth every 40 minutes of every day
Just to receive the wonderful smell of Roses
It is truly a Blessing received when you experience it.

I don't pray it regularly. I've never smelled roses before either, maybe some day.
Did your parents make you say the Rosary carolegalassi? The reason why I ask is because it is not mandatory for Catholics to pray the Rosary.
Everyone is different, and everyone experiences the presence of holy beings in different ways. While praying the rosary, not everyone smells or tastes roses. God chooses to touch people in different ways.
For those that may not be aware of this fact, Martin Luther continued to pray the Rosary even after the reformation. He was devoted to the Blessed Virgin. It was through Calvinism that brought the attacks on Mary, the mother of Jesus and it has increased substantially since then. God wants to make known throughout the world the devotion to the Blessed Virgin. Eventually her Immaculate Heart will triumph through love.
I thought we only pray to god himself? What's the significance of praying the rosary? Am I going to hell if I don't pray the rosary? If not then then why?
Yeah I don't pray the Rosary enough anymore lately myself too Crazdwriter. But I'd like to share this article by Hilary D. because it gives reasons why Scarlet and others would smell roses when praying the Rosary.

i went to Catholic schools for a while but saying our rosaries was never mandatory...it was just something we did. mostly for mediation almost...
Wow cool post Make Money. That was a good read. and yes I went to catholic school too and we would say the rosary for meditation as well as a whole with the school. We actually even made a human rosary and I got to be a part of it once. we made construction paper links and I got to help hold it. it was cool.
The rosary is not mandatory but it's a way and means of attaining world peace. Our Lady of Fatima asked for us to pray the rosary as a means to this end. If you grew up in the 50's and went to Catholic school you were taught to pray the rosary every day. I, for one, am well past my prime and to this day still say my rosary. I may not say one every day now but I try to get one said daily after my novena to St. Jude and novena to St. Therese. I have posted both novenas in my hubs. But my very first prayer of the day is to the Almighty in thanksgiving for another day to do his will.
God bless you bearnmom. You probably remember watching the black and white version of the Warner Brothers production of The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima from the 1950s like me. Well now it has had color put to it and has been uploaded to YouTube in 12 parts.
Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima
Stimp there is a possibility that Scott hadn't heard of the Rosary. Well whether he had or not I certainly didn't mind posting the two Hubs by Sweeps Luck and MM Del Rosario on how to pray the Rosary.
Stimp I'm just curious, do Lutherans pray the Rosary? The reason why I ask is because I know Martin Luther was devoted to Our Lady and prayed the Rosary himself.
Lutherans do not pray the Rosary.
My mom's rosary is hanging the cross that was on her casket. I was raised strict catholic (no longer practice it). I don't remember learning the rosary 35 years ago, I do remember being told to say the Our Father and Hail Mary and a load of other prayers after confession and I hadn't done anything wrong.
He/She is right....Lutherans don't pray the Rosary. However, I have seen it done and have been shown the basics by my mom who was a raised catholic. She, I believe, still has hers.
Lutherans pray a rosary with out the Hail Mary prayer.
Check this website for the Lutheran Rosary prayers.
I certainly do remember the black and white version of the "Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima." We saw it almost every Lenten season at school while I attended Catholic School. I have not seen it colorized.
Thank you for your kind words and God Bless.
Mom (bear was my deceased husband).
Make Money: I have a tendency to "nip" at those who are making comments on real issues for the sole purpose of getting an argument started. I don't dig that. It's not my style. I believe that the initiator of this post was being sincere and sharing her feelings and it appeared as though some where trying to challenge her. Again, I don't dig that. But whatever, you are right PERHAPS 20 years in the marines didn't teach much but how to fight. That's unfortunate
No. Are we done now? I was forced to pray the rosary thousands of times in my childhood. Don't know why and will never do it again.
I pray the rosary but there are times i been lazy praying so i tried to pray it in the morning when i'm not busy and if not i do it in the evening before going to bed.
Any auditory or olfactory symptoms (hearing or smelling symptoms) are a sign of brain dysfunction. Have you had checks for epilepsy or other 'nervous' disorders? You may be hyperventilating or becoming hysterical when saying the rosary. I advise you see a doctor if these pathological symptoms occur often, or take a good brisk walk.
Any type of meditation eg saying the rosary or any other mantra can cause hallucinations if not done correctly.
what's the relevance of praying the rosary again? just curious what people think about it=)
Why the hell would I do that?
I do recite "Mary had a little lamb" to my GKids.
Have you read the news lately...Forty some odd blessed priest have raped and abused over 300 small children in dublin.

eg the the people that didn't get healed when you prayed for them? Not enough faith? Hidden sin? God doesn't care? Answered prayers are really just luck anyway?

Believers believe that God knows everything. Then why many believers pray to God loudly, shouting and many times on microphone?
