I would like to thank you for all that you have done for me and my family through your videos and web site I try to read it every day. I have one question for you. I drive a lot for my job and sometimes I lesson to the radio but I also like to say the rosary, and while driving I cannot seem to stay focused on it. My mind starts to wander and I will start thinking of where I am going or other things when I realize what I am doing I go back to focusing on the rosary. My question is should I not be praying the rosary while driving, like I said I spend a lot of time in my car and I don't want to waste it. Thank you
Thank you for your e-mail. We believe that one can and should pray the Rosary while one drives, even if the recollection during prayer is not perfect. The prayer can still be powerful and efficacious; and, as you say, you spend a lot of time in your car and don’t want to waste it.
Regarding listening to the radio, obviously no one should be listening to the mainstream music offered on popular radio stations, since it’s basically all of the devil, and a powerful medium for distracting and influencing people in ways they cannot see. The popular and mainstream music of our day blocks graces out of the soul, and keeps people mired in worldly and sensual thinking. This is true even with songs whose lyrics seem innocuous. For those who may not be convinced of the evil influence of the mainstream modern music (Rock, Rap, “Alternative”, etc., etc.) – including of groups whose songs seem harmless – please obtain a copy of the video that we sell (a four-hour exposé of Rock and popular music) called “Rock and Roll Sorcerers of the New Age Revolution.” It was done by a Protestant heretic, but he did an incredible job showing how basically all of this popular music comes from the devil and people possessed by the devil. In fact, anyone who has a teenage child who doesn’t believe in the devil needs to show the child this video; for it’s probably the single best tape of which we’re aware to prove that the devil exists and how the devil works.
The fact is that those who listen to and tune in to the mainstream music are tuning in to the devil’s message. Thus, parents shouldn’t allow their kids to listen to such music; if they do their children will never advance in virtue and almost certainly be damned. In fact, the failure to extricate their children from the mainstream evil culture (e.g. by allowing them to listen to such music) is one reason why many “traditionalist” children unfortunately don’t have much interest in the Faith. We believe that parents who do allow their children to listen to the mainstream music are sinning. For those who have become accustomed to listening to such music, the break from it will be painful at first; but the question is which path do they want to take: the broad road to hell or the straight and narrow road to heaven?
