The prayer that “calms me, consoles me and delivers me”



Speaking of the Rosary, Benedict XVI says he prays like his parents, who loved this prayer for its simplicity. The Rosary is a Marian prayer related to the mysteries of the life of Christ—using beads strung on a cord—whose origins date back to the Middle Ages.

“What matters is not that I follow every word spoken rationally, but instead that I let myself be carried by the calm that comes from repetition and regularity ... I think this original experience of the history of religions, repetition, rhythm, common speech, the chorus that carries me and rocks me and fills all space calms me, consoles me and delivers me ...

This experience enables us to pray with simplicity in a Marian context and in the light of Christ, and to internalize the content of this prayer, by letting ourselves be drawn—by the words—beyond any intellectual approach.”
