Fr. Josh talks about the Rosary, Working on Sundays, and NFP.

Glory Story (1:48)

The Rosary (5:57)

Would you please give some pointers on how to explain why the Rosary is not repetitious prayer? I have friends who tell me it is wrong to recite the Rosary at all, let alone even daily. I just never know how to answer them. Thank you!


Working on Sundays (12:47)

I occasionally have to work on Sundays. It bothers me a bit because our faith is very clear about worship on Sunday. I do my best to attend Mass but sometimes I get there when it is almost over and it's the best that I can do. I am afraid if I bring this up to my boss he will replace me with someone else who will work on Sundays and I’ll lose out on hours and pay that I need to support my family. What do I do?


NFP (19:53)

My mother in law doesn't believe the Church’s teaching on contraception and she frequently makes passive aggressive jokes about how we are just going to end up with tons of kids because we are using natural family planning. When we announced we were pregnant with our first, her very first comment to my husband was “I told you so.” I am so upset about this but I don’t want to confront it because I don’t want to jeopardize our relationship so early on in the marriage. What do I do?
