Why do Catholics pray repetitive prayers like the Rosary?
Scripture rails against repetitive prayer. A. Jesus taught us to pray the Our Father. We have all prayed that prayer repeatedly throughout our lives. There are profound reflections to be garnered from the Our Father, just as there are profound reflections to be garnered from the Rosary. When prayed meditatively, the Our Father is a whole school of theology. Likewise, the decades of the Hail Mary are like Scripture on a string. They walk us through the very life of Jesus providing tremendous food for reflection. In conclusion, Catholic teachings on Mary are widely attacked, not so much out of malice as much as misunderstanding. As Catholic stewards we need to help bridge the divide. Stewardship is about time, talent, treasure, trust, truth, and teachings. The kernel and core of the Gospel message is that, out of love for us, Jesus Christ — the only Son of God — took flesh and died for our sins. Everything else is secondary. But secondary does not mean unimportant. Jesus is also, human
