Another helpful and informative post from David 364112 from an earlier Novena thread:
rose theheart rosary

This novena has increased my devotion to the Rosary. One of the reasons I got involved in setting up these Rosary Novena threads on CM (several good people began promoting this devotion on CM before I got involved in 2011), is to participate in promoting devotion to the Rosary. All who participate and contribute are spreading devotion to the Rosary.

As for intentions, most of mine are spiritual in nature. Praying for virtues, for a holy life and holy death, help with defects of character and habitual sins, also spiritual benefits for others (I try to be open here "bless and help so and so" because I cannot and should not prescribe what they need - God knows best), etc. I have asked for temporal intentions as well. The first time I prayed the novena was during lent in 2011. I'd been unemployed almost 2 years. I prayed for a job and started one the Monday after the Novena concluded on Divine Mercy Sunday. Recently, I started asking a confessor or spiritual director to suggest an intention which has nothing to do with me. That's been helpful. One of my intentions is always everyone who's praying the novena with us and for all their intentions. I also add all of the prayer intentions posted on CM.

I am just a splinter of light compared to David's wit and wisdom. laughing Here is another fine quote from him:


"In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary. Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart. And that you may obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps. With her for guide, you shall never go astray; while invoking her, you shall never lose heart; so long as she is in your mind, you are safe from deception; while she holds your hand, you cannot fall; under her protection you have nothing to fear; if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary; if she shows you favor, you shall reach the goal."

- Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

Praying the rosary is one powerful way to walk with Mary, to see Jesus's life through her eyes, and to love Jesus all the more.
