Why Pray the Rosary

Joseph Pronechen posted an article at Catholic Exchange explaining why Our Lady instructed us to pray the rosary every day. The gold nugget in the piece is this quote by Sister Lucia:

Even for those people who do not know how, or who are not able to recollect themselves sufficiently to meditate, the simple act of taking the Rosary in their hands in order to pray is already to become mindful of God, and a men­tion in each decade of a mystery of the life of Christ recalls Him to their minds; this in turn will light in their souls a gentle light of faith which supports the still smoldering wick, preventing it from extinguishing itself altogether.
