The Spirit of the Rosary
The word Rosary means 'a Garland of Roses'. The Rosary is a set of sweet flowers that we give to the Holy Mother. Each rose is a prayer. Each prayer is a rose.
When you have completed a round of prayer, you should end with a period of silence. This silence allows you to center your being. It also invites reflection and listening after you have invoked the Name and Presence of God.
