“In our prayers let us bring God our daily crosses, in the certainty that He is present and listens to us. The cry of Jesus reminds us that in prayer we must cross the barrier of ‘self’ and our own problems, and open ourselves to the needs and sufferings of others. May the prayer of the dying Jesus on the cross teach us to pray with love for so many brothers and sisters who feel the burden of daily life, who are experiencing moments of difficulty, who suffer and hear no words of comfort, that they may feel the love of God Who never abandons us." -- Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI on his 2012 Reflection on the final prayer of Jesus on the Cross
"Behold, the hour is coming and has arrived when each of you will be scattered to his own home and you will leave me alone. But I am not alone, because the Father is with me. I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage -- I have conquered the world." John 17:32-33.
From the early days of Christianity, faithful followers of Our Lord Jesus have focused on specific events of Our Lord's Passion. Through these contemplations one is to find the culmination of the revelation of God's infinite love and mercy -- which is the source of our salvation.

I feel more focused using this rosary....seeing the mysteries. Placing my thumb on the back of the our father is calming as it's smooth and anchors me on that decade.
I also pray my mercy chaplet on these red beads and think of Jesus passion.
