Really Praying the Rosary

Paramedicgirl has good news for people who are distracted while praying.

Hmmmm. That would be me.

The good news comes from The Life & Revelations of Anne Catherine Emmerich

A third woman was praying, and she was distracted repeatedly by worldly thoughts but she fought to overcome this, and each time she successfully focused again on her prayer. Because of this woman's persistence in overcoming her distractions, she had the most beautiful reward of all. Her angel had written in gold letters of the grace she had won and her crown was the most resplendent of all.

I have this problem frequently, particularly in group prayer and contemplative prayer.
