Love is never monotonous in the uniformity of its expression. The mind is infinitely variable in its language, but the heart is not. The heart of a man, in the face of the woman he loves, is too poor to translate the infinity of his affection into a different word. So the heart takes one expression, "I love you," and in saying it over and over again, it never repeats. It is the only real news in the universe. That is what we do when we say the Rosary, we are saying to God, the Trinity, to the Incarnate Saviour, to the Blessed Mother: "I love you, I love you, I love you."

If you wish to convert anyone to the fullness of the knowledge of Our Lord and to His Mystical Body, then teach him the Rosary. One of two things will happen. Either he will stop saying the Rosary — or he will get the gift of faith.

I heard a priest on EWTN radio say that he was asked why Catholics just kept repeating one prayer over and over when they said the Rosary. He asked the man if he took twenty minutes out of each of his busy days to pray. When told that he didn’t, the priest replied that even if the rosary did no more good than that, at least it kept us in touch with God and His Mother every single day.

There’s more than that to the Rosary, of course, but it makes a good point.

Tradition has long connected Saint Dominic and his Order with the preaching of the Rosary. Dominic’s followers have been called the “Friars of Mary.” The fifteen-decade Rosary adorns their habit with the frequent reminder that they are united to the Son of God in the living presence of our Blessed Mother.

Pray the Rosary. 
Pray without ceasing.
