Catholic Prayer: Family Rosary in the Irish Home

Description:

"No family in Ireland would think of retiring without saying the Rosary together. In many homes the fifteen decades are said on Saturday in thanksgiving for the blessings of the week..."

Prayer:

The "trimmings" or intentions take as long to say as the Rosary itself. These express prayers for the honor and glory of God, for thanksgiving, for members of the family away from home, and especially those beyond the ocean. Again, there is a rememberance of relatives, friends, and neighbors, of travellers who are in distress. For those who do us injury there is the invocation, "May God direct them in the way of salvation." Every departed relative and friend is mentioned. "The man who was killed on the coach road" is not forgotten even though the accident had happened a hundred years ago.
