"Do you want to love Our Lady? —Well, get to know her. How? —By praying her Rosary well. But, in the Rosary... we always say the same things! —Always the same? And don't those who are in love always say the same things to each other?... Could it not be that there is monotony in your Rosary because, instead of pronouncing words like a man, you emit sounds like an animal, while your mind is very far from God? —Moreover, listen: before each decade we are told the mystery to be contemplated. —Have you... ever contemplated these mysteries? Become little. Come with me and —this is the essence of what I have to confide— we will live the life of Jesus, Mary and Joseph." – St Josemaria on the Holy Rosary. This medallion of the Saint is in the church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Florence.
