Updated March 26, 5am: I’ll make a separate page later for the Live Twitter Rosary Threads. Until then here’s the link for the first one, from March 24. Also edited the post to show that I changed the way I post the thread, just a little.
Remember the Live Twitter Rosary Thread? (On Twitter known as the #RosaryProject.*) I’m bringing it back while the Coronavirus is affecting so many of us worldwide. If you missed the Live Twitter Rosary Threads the first time around, I hope you’ll join in this time. The schedule is Tuesdays and Fridays at 7pm Central Daylight Savings Time.
If for some reason you can’t join live, the threads will be posted on Twitter, and the #RosaryProject also has permanent pages—with image galleries—on this site. The schedule is subject to change depending on how things go with the virus and with my crazy health (or lack thereof).
See the Rosary Project pages for a preview of what to expect on Twitter. To follow along and pray, follow me and use hashtag #RosaryProject, and look for the thread to begin around 7pm CDT, Central Daylight Savings Time. You can enter @disciple96 #RosaryProject in the Search box on Twitter and find the thread that way, too. But the best way is to watch my Twitter page around 7pm.
Usually a few minutes before the Rosary starts I post an announcement tweet and some personal prayer intentions
on a separate thread and then continue the thread at 7pm. Feel free to add your own intentions to the thread, too.
Then I post a mini-reflection to help us prepare for prayer. Usually a graphic with a verse from the daily Divine Office or the Scriptures or the Daily Mass Readings, what-have-you.
Then we’ll pray the Opening Prayers, the Sorrowful Mysteries, the Closing Prayers, and maybe a very short prayer at the very end. Images accompany each prayer all the way through. I use mostly classic Catholic Christian art from the earliest Christian images down through to the present, well, not much of the present because I personally don’t care for most of it and I’m kind of particular about my art. Other people’s art. You know what I mean. Some stuff I like, and some stuff I really really don’t. Modern art, for the most part, I cannot stand. Blah!
Thanks for reading. I hope you’re enjoying your visit and that you’ll join the Live Twitter Rosary Thread beginning tomorrow night. Until next time, whoever and wherever you are, may the Lord bless you and keep you, and may the peace of Christ be always with you. +JMJ+
PS: While you’re here be sure to sign up for the chance to win a prize in celebration of my Triple Anniversary Giveaway. You can enter until April 9, 2020. Coming up soon. Twenty four years a Catholic! Woohoo!
*Now I think of that first live version as the #RosaryProject 1.0. The 2.0 version is the one that lives on the blog. This new Twitter version is 3.0. Subject to change the more I think about it.
