Ave Maria Meditations
I want to recommend to you in a special way the rosary, the source of profound Christian life. Try to pray it every day, alone or with your family, repeating with great faith those basic prayers of the Christian: the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be to the Father.
Meditate on those scenes of the life of Jesus and Mary of which the joyful, sorrowful, and glorious mysteries remind us. Thus you will learn in the joyful mysteries to think of Jesus who became poor an lowly, a child for our sake, to serve us; you will feel encouraged to serve your neighbor in his needs. In the sorrowful mysteries you will realize that accepting the sufferings of this life with docility and love, like Christ in His passion, leads to happiness and joy is expressed in the glorious mysteries of Christ and Mary in the hope of eternal life.
Pope Saint John Paul II
