Talking Rosary

Fr Jim Martin at the America blog notes this offering, a “Rosary Companion” that feeds you the audio of the prayers, tracks the repetitions and generally guides you along the way. Good thing or bad thing?

Something this size could easily contain enough audio and music files to do the entire Liturgy of the Hours, the order of Mass, and still say your rosary for you.

    There are a number of rosary apps on iTunes, and some are free, so unless you’re without an iPod/iPhone, I’m not sure why you wouldn’t just carry a wallet card to keep track of the mysteries.

  2. Chris says:

    Here’s an idea: just memorise the mysteries, go to your private room, and say your prayers, leaving the technology in the office, like they used to in the ‘good old days’. It’s not that hard.

    Much ado about nuthin’

    The older technology is more compatible with driving.

    For me the rosary is a form of “engaged disengagement.” I use it while walking or just sitting. While driving too, but definitely engaged then!

    I would not want the technology – it seems like a gimmick to me, but that is just me.

    The rosary is an essential car accessory. Use at the very least in cases of bumper to bumper traffic. Also good for ending the work day. Or when en route to visit people (business or social) who aggravate you.

  7. Liam says:

    And, I should add, typically a helpful aid for insomniacs. But not while driving in that case.
