I love God but...

Everytime my mother says, "Let's pray the rosary!" I suddenly feel this boiling anger swell inside me and I just want to scream at her to shut up. I never act on it but that feeling stays inside of me until we stop praying the rosary.

I don't know why but it annoys me so much. I dislike praying the rosary. I feel like such a bad Catholic for it but I just don't like it. My heart is never into it and the only thing that runs through my mind is "Can we please get this over with?" especially when my mother leads the prayer with exaggerated slowness.

  • I know a scientist who used to be an atheist. his experience as a passenger in an airplane changed him. The pilot had given up, they had circled and almost exhausted the gas and were five minutes from crashing. The landing gear was not responding. All the while, the "religious people" were praying. He noted that Christians were more confident in their prayers to Jesus and overtime, even the other religious folks joined them in calling "Jesus, savior, save us" etc. last three minutes, the gear was out without the crew's manipulation and they landed safely. He began reading the New Testament from that day! He only wanted to know about Jesus. He read it in his phone (copy is online). Yet to attend church and folks do not know about him as a Church person. For years, he had wanted to quit drinking and smoking which had cost him friends and jobs; had even attended therapies. Said he figured that if Jesus could do all the miracles he read about and what happened in the plane that day, he could do that. And did he do it? Yes, he did! For two years he's been free.

  • I love the spaghettimonster even though he doesnt talk to me, i'm better at believing in imaginary things than you!

  • That's because the rosary is a tedious waste of time. You'd feel closer to God if you went to the pub instead

  • bad catholic? like all those priests who f*** kids? or their bosses who just moved them around to different locations instead of handing them over to the authorities? f*** religion its stupid. free your mind.

  • Sounds like you a demon is influencing you very strongly and he's ticked off when she prays.

  • I'm a Christian, but not a Catholic and I will be honest...I don't understand the point of the rosary prayer. Who are you praying to and for what? I pray to God/Jesus and I pray what's in my heart, not some prayer that was written out for me. Maybe that's why you aren't feeling it. It's not your prayer. Try praying to God in your own words, what you feel and see if that feels more comfortable to you.

  • bless your soul i hope this will get better
