I love this thought from a Dominican priest, brought to us by A Catholic Mom in Hawaii:
Prayer is the raising of the mind and heart to God. We should PRAY the Rosary rather than say it. Counting prayers on beads was in vogue before St. Dominic's time. When Mary gave the Rosary to him, the new thing added was meditation on the mysteries. This method of teaching the mysteries of religion produces in souls the life of Christ.
The Dominican Rosary Center has a simple page with instructions on how to pray the rosary.
Our Lady made fifteen promises for those who pray and teach others to pray the rosary.
At Lilies Among Thorns (my site) you can find an image for each of the mysteries of the rosary as an aid for meditation.
(My Rosary Through Fine Art page is still not completely migrated over. I keep forgetting. But I'll get it done this month!)
