O Rosário

Růženec, modlitba jen pro babičky?

Mnozí z nás si pamatují na svou babičku, která se modlívala růženec. A kdo takovou babičku nemá nebo neměl doma, tak se s ní může setkat ve své farnosti zhruba půl hodiny přede mší svatou. Čím to je, že je tato modlitba mezi babičkami tak populární? Existuje nějaký minimální věk k tomu, aby se ji člověk mohl začít modlit? Nebo se ji může modlit jen, když se děje něco závažného? Jak jsme si to mysleli, když jsme byli malí... Jaké je vlastně kouzlo této monotónní modlitby, že se ji modlí už tolik generací babiček? A svatých?

Le Rosaire, prière de pèlerins

Le chapelet est une prière de toutes les occasions

On dit du chrétien qu’il est un pèlerin parce qu’il est en route vers le Royaume de Dieu. Dans cette marche, la prière est importante : elle ouvre notre âme à la présence de Dieu. Elle nous apprend à vivre en Dieu. Mais il n’est pas facile de prier en toute circonstance comme il n’est pas facile de vivre l’Évangile. C’est là que le chapelet vient à notre aide. Nous pouvons le prier partout : à la maison et en voyage.
