LEARNING to PRAY
Thoughts About the Mysteries to Treasure:
There are ten thoughts, one for each Hail Mary.
If all five decades seem to be too long, just start with one.
Later you can add another, then another. It’s better to pray
well than to hurry through without really praying. Ask the
Holy Spirit to help you. You will grow to love Jesus and
Mary more. (If later you wish to change the lines before
each Hail Mary to be your own thoughts, you will be
really praying from your heart.) Jesus loves to receive and
answer your prayers.
