Let’s not forget that October is the Month of the Holy Rosary.
I’ve spent some time on previous posts talking about reflective prayer, aka, meditation. The Rosary is a unique form of meditation for Catholics. By focusing on the mysteries – events in the lives of Jesus and Mary – we encounter the Lord in a special way, through the intercession of Mary.
It occurs to me now that praying the Rosary with my 8th graders this month will be a wonderful opportunity to introduce them to another form of reflective prayer.
Any other plans out there for incorporating the Rosary into your lessons this month?
