Changing Everything But Ourselves…

Fireworks08 (3) (Medium)

... Today I realized I'd forgotten how to pray the rosary. No, not the prayers. The meditations. Was today the Joyful, Luminous, or Sorrowful Mysteries? I couldn't remember. Then I tried to pray the Angelus and that also escaped my memory. Geesh. There goes my street cred, I thought.
