We don't especially associate the Rosary with Lent but there are good reasons why we will benefit from praying it at this time.
The Rosary has had a profound effect upon Catholic life for centuries. That is because it provides a simple way to contemplate the love of God in the life of Jesus with the best possible help to understand it. We pray in the company of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. With her help we can enter more fully into the heart of Jesus and his love. She knows what it is to live with Christ and be faithful to the end.
The great thing about the Rosary is that you can pray it any time any where. You can pray a little of it or the whole of it. Each moment will focus your attention on an event in the life of Jesus. Each moment can provide you with encouragement, or inspiration, or just comfort for you on your way.
It is easy to pray with the beads but you can count on your fingers if you wish. The saying of the "Our Father" the ten "Hail Mary's" and the "Glory be to the Father" provide a constant expression of praise. And as you pray you reflect on God's love in Jesus. During Lent it is specially appropriate to dwell on the sorrowful mysteries: the Agony and prayer of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane; the scourging at the pillar; the crowning with thorns when he was mocked as King; the carrying of the cross and the moments of grace on the way; and finally the crucifixion in which the total giving of Jesus our Saviour is realised.
