    Hello,

        I have only joined this hub site 2 days ago.I have to be
        very honest with you.It is very addictive.
        Oh i am having lots of fun.The problem is i miss
        saying the Rosary.When i say my Rosary i get the most
        Beautiful smell of Roses around me.I also get the taste of
        Roses in my mouth.I will only be with you for a short time
        not a long time.
        Are there any of you out there who has had the same
        experience as me.The smell of Roses around you when you say
        the Rosary.

        Kindest Regard

      Hi

      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.

        As far as I'm aware the rosary has never been mandatory within the Catholic Church.

    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.


        God Bless

      What is  The Rosary? How does it go?

        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.

    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.

        Kindest Regards

        Scarlet Ryan 1970


        p.s. The whole Rosary takes exactly 40 minutes to complete.

    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.

    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.

      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.

        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.

        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

    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.
