“Why do we have to say the Rosary every night?” Imagine this being said in the whiniest of five year old boys whines.
Now, imagine it being repeated, every night, for about five minutes before the Rosary. It’s enough to drive me crazy.
It doesn’t matter when we start, whether or not the kids have had a long day or are well rested, sick or well. This little boy just does not like saying the family Rosary before bed. He also used to throw a fit when we refused to feed him if he refused to say grace with us. Oh, and he still doesn’t participate much at Mass. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a pretty good kid; he just doesn’t “like” praying.
