This afternoon, I’ve rediscovered how nice it is to go to the gym and walk around the track with rosary in hand!  It’s like getting a physical workout and a spiritual workout all at once!

I’ve heard lots of Catholic friends say they pray the Rosary while walking.  It’s clearly good enough for Pope Benedict:

He’s clearly an expert at it.  Even the terrain of Switzerland is no deterrent for him.  I’d probably break my neck if I tried that.  Although it might not be so bad if I had a personal secretary to keep an eye on me.

Alas, I must limit my praying and walking to the nice, smooth, monotonous gym track.
