The Where and the Who

Recently, at one of our Rosary Study Groups at St. Simeon Skete, someone asked Seraphim, "What is the Rosary?"  

Seraphim replied, "There is a Where and Who of the Rosary.  We find this when we divest ourselves of inner resources developed apart from God." 

1. "Where IAM, here shall also my servant be." - Jn. 12:26

2. "Where do you dwell? Come and see" - Jn. 1:38-39

3. "This is me" - Mt. 25:33-40

4. "My Body and Blood" -Mt. 26:26-28

5. "Eat" - Jn.6:53-58 

6.  "They will see me" - Mt. 28: 5,7

7. "Mary was there" -Jn. 2:1, Jn. 19:25
