Tip for avoiding distractions when praying the Rosary


Try praying the Rosary in a new language.  A printable instruction guide can be downloaded here that shows the prayers of the Rosary in English and Latin.


Add a phrase pertinent to the Mystery being prayed in the Hail Mary (as shown below) to help focus on an aspect of that Mystery.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.  Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, JESUS, (add phrase here).  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.  Amen.
