The Rosary is Not Just About the Lives of Jesus and Mary--It's about our life, too.
While meditating on the life of Jesus, we are able to look at our own lives from the perspective of Jesus’, that is, from birth to death and beyond our lives are intricately connected to our lord and savior’s. In this way, our own lives and those around us become filled with meaning.
In our prayer along the journey of life, the rosary is never the same, no matter how many times we meditate on the mysteries because we do not stay the same. Each time we pray the rosary, we bring to God the circumstances and people in our own life. Each time we pray the rosary we have a slightly different focus using a different kernel from each mystery.
