Do you love the Rosary? You may not know that there are variations on praying this traditional prayer. Try praying the psalter of the Aves which is just the first half of the Hail Mary prayer with a Scriptural "Little Chant" at the end, a German tradition.
Our beloved Sister Frances Maureen Carlin, Prioress from 1967 to 1973, wrote a booklet called the Renewed Rosary, that guides people through these mysteries.
