I went in at 10 but no one was there

I don't know why.

The 10PM time slot was the most voted. We had already 3 GR done in a row at 8PM (Saturday 11th, 18th and 25th). Has there any GR taken place at 10PM?

For not as common bread and common drink do we receive these; but in like manner as Jesus Christ our Saviour, having been made flesh by the word of God, had both flesh and blood for our salvation, so likewise have we been taught that the food which is blessed by the prayer of His word, and from which our blood and flesh by transmutation are nourished, is the flesh and blood of that Jesus who was made flesh." — Justin Martyr, First Apology. Chap. LXVI. — Of the Eucharist.

Yeah, not so popular a time after all. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

8PM has done well though.  Last night and the week before, we've had at least four folks each time.

I didn't try this time.  Last week I was there at 10 but there was only 1 other person who only wanted to watch.
It's easy to get discouraged when that happens...  I'm glad the 8PM time is working well for others.

I have company this weekend and won't be able to be around for the group rosary at either time.

Reminder:

Group Rosary this evening at 8PM and 10PM. This is our 4th session.

I'll try to be there.

Was able to make the first one today, at 8pm est, just before Mass. [Saturday evening est is Sunday morning for me :)] In chapel, they gave the example of how Poland etc was freed from Communism by the Rosary. They asked us to pray the Rosary at homes on Dec 8th, Feast of the Immaculate Conception (beside a holy hour in chapel between 12 to 1 pm) and took down the names of those who volunteered to do so.

I was thinking, if people find it easier to do so, could we have something similar here? That is, if people can agree to say a Rosary at the time convenient for them, we can plan that accordingly here. This way, if say, 10 people agree, either all 10 can pray at the stipulated time and we can count and keep track here. Or, if it's easier, because some are in different time zones, free at different times etc they can agree to pray at consecutive times. Say, one person can set apart 6-620 pm. Another 620-640 pm. Then 640-700 pm etc. This way we can have something like a continuous Rosary like some monastic communities do. And we can schedule that for the week here. What do you say?
"Pray insistently without tiring and weep with bitter tears in the secrecy of your heart, imploring our Celestial Father that ... He might take pity on His ministers and quickly bring to an end those ominous times, sending to this Church the Prelate that will restore the spirit of Her priests ...The lukewarmness of all the souls consecrated to God in the priestly and religious state will delay the coming of this Prelate and Father …That night will be most horrible, for, humanly speaking, evil will seem to triumph. This, then, will mark the arrival of My hour, when I, in a marvelous way will dethrone the proud and cursed Satan, trampling him under My feet and fettering him in the infernal abyss" https://www.michaeljournal.org/articles/roman-catholic-church/item/our-lady-of-good-success see also Our Lady of Good Success on http://www.salvemariaregina.info/

"My dear Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother,and the whole Heavenly Court, united with your Most Precious Blood and your sacrifice on Calvary, I hereby offer my whole life to the intention of your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with my life I place at your disposal all Holy Masses, all my Communions, all my good deeds, all my sacrifices, and the sufferings of my entire life for the adoration and supplication of the Holy Trinity, for unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father and priests, for good priestly vocations, and for all souls until the end of the world. Oh my Jesus, please accept my life sacrifice and my offerings and give me your grace that I may persevere obediently until my death. Amen." http://copiosa.org/heart/heart_sacred_consecration.htm Promises for Victim Soul consecration: "(1)Their names will be written in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary ... (2) Their life offering, together with the infinite merits of Jesus, can save many souls from damnation ...  (3) None of their family members will go to hell ... (4) On the day they offer their lives, their loved ones suffering in Purgatory will be released. (5) I will be with them at the hour of their death. They will not know Purgatory"

What do you say?

To be honest, I think it's too ambitious.

It will be hard enough to keep this simple Saturday evening rosary going on. Let's take each step at a time.

Jayne has told me that there has been some difficulty in following the prayer format when I'm not around.

I thought the format was pretty straightforward but, since it isn't as simple as I thought it was, I'm willing to host a webcam chat with some of you who wish to volunteer to lead the rosary prayers (Jacob, Aeneas, etc.), so I can explain the procedure and train, if necessary, a few of you to keep this thing going.

I understand the GR was said last Saturday but that people had to improvise. I hope it won't be necessary in the future. Tell me what you think and how many of you are interested.

I think I know how to do it, although 10 Eastern is my bedtime, so I am almost never there for that one, so I don`t know how useful I could be then.

Agreed.  It takes a few times around to get a hold on what's going on.

No training necessary, then?

I would like to do some training.  Not by the means you suggest though, as I can't hear, so webcam chat isn't workable.  What I'd need to do to get the hang of leading is just taking the lead and people allowing me to sort through the guide at my own speed, copy, pasting, making sure I am not losing my place.

I do recommend that anyone who wants to learn this should participate by doing the responses first to know how things work.

How about a crib sheet such as that in reply #5 only in English. I think it could of helped last Fri. night. I've had no experience with group rosaries until SD and am trying to learn it.

Jacob and Red,

If you want to try a "dry rosary" in the chatroom tomorrow or Saturday before the proper time, we can do it. It might be a useful way for you to master the format.
