This morning I decided to do something different. What if I started praying the rosary from when I leave my home until I arrive at work?
Amazingly my journey to work - including a brief stop at a coffee shop en route took me exactly 15 decades of the rosary! Instead of arriving at work filled with an awareness of the bad news - I was reminded of the good news.
My praying of rosary concluded as always with the Prayer to Michael the Archangel and I whispered the Amen exactly as I entered my office.
The contrast couldn't be greater. Monday starting work thinking of England battling - and losing to New Zealand - and Tuesday starting work being reminded of Christ and His victory - and that of His mother and the angels.
