Today’s Focus: Our Rosary of Praying
While some may look upon the Cross and the Rosary with discontent and nothingness. I see the Cross and the Rosary as truly the most magnificent gift the world will ever receive; but sadly, most of the world don’t see the joy and the gift in it. Jesus Himself, God’s only begotten Son gave everything He had to save us, keeping nothing for Himself. That my sisters and brothers is truly amazing and splendid in and of itself. I am very proud of my faith. I know that is against the grain of being humble; but I know that when we have pride of our faith, it’s not the same as when we have pride in ourselves. I love Jesus Christ with all my heart and I sincerely love His mother Mary. My life is what it is today, because of them. For this, I am ever grateful and for this, I dedicate and give my entire life to my Lord.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world: have mercy on us. Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world: have mercy on us. Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world: grant us peace.
Yes, you read that correctly. I sometimes even sing that. I love, I really love the prayers at Mass. In the way, I love and embrace prayer; I see the Mass as a Rosary in and of itself, celebrating Jesus. I hope you see the joy, in why I feel that. My life is very simple and some may see it as boring, but I don’t. The greatest part of this entire journey in this life is my time spent with our Lord and our Lady. I can’t tell you how many times I have prayed the Hail Mary:
Hail Mary, full of grace,
LOVE YOU GUYS !!!!
Your brother in Christ Jesus
And His Most Blessed Mother,
Jim (The Rosary Man) Dacey Jr OFS

Rosary Man Jim’s Sorrowful Reflection: http://beads-of-joy-blog.blogspot.com/2014/02/the-sorrowful-mysteries_11.html
I share this meditation I wrote back in 2010. Here I share my own personal insight and experience, as I journey with our Lady from station to station.
Many Franciscan groups around the world use this for their own group gathering while they meditate the Stations with our Lady. http://beads-of-joy-blog.blogspot.com/2010/03/marys-way-of-cross.html It is unique and emotionally very moving as you move from station to station… From my heart to yours.
