From a reader:
A group of us wanted to recite the Rosary after Mass in church and our pastor said ‘No the Rosary is a ‘private prayer’ and cannot be said as a group in church…..your thoughts ???
Are you sure that is what he said?
If he really said that – and it is a little hard to believe – I think that to be one of the dumbest things I have heard in a long time.
Of course the Rosary can be prayed by groups and in a church!
I would jot the pastor a kind, brief note asking him to explain why the Rosary cannot be prayed by a group in church. I hope he responds in writing.
