Today was the first day of our week of studying Traditional and Devotional Prayer in Religious Education. Mrs O’Grady spoke to us about it.
She showed us the rosary beads we have in class – some are ‘glow in the dark’ – great for saying the rosary in bed with the light out!
Some of us have rosary beads at home and she encouraged us to bring them to school to show our friends how we can pray the rosary on them.
We talked about the prayers that you say when you pray the rosary. We practiced them. We listened carefully to what Mrs O’Grady had to say.
After that we said the prayers of the rosary together. We will be spending some time every day this week to meditate on the rosary. We hope our Mums/Dads and Family/Whanau will help us say the rosary at home for family devotion times!
