Bro. Apolonio then lent me his small book so that I could photocopy a few prayers from it. Then, he asked me to buy a Holy Rosary Handbook as a guide. All of these were weird, but I pursued it.
The following day, even if I had all the needed requirements, I still had conflicts with myself whether I should pray or not. Furthermore, I hate routines. And formula prayers are only meaningful at the first read. When I come to memorize it, I come short to parroting. So, why pray?
But then, I had an answer deep within soul.
I have always known that God does not force us to come and pray to Him. Rather, He invites us to it. As for the formula prayers, it was up to me to add spice in them. I prayed with my own original compositions and added songs in them.
After that, I was at peace with myself. Surprisingly, I ended up going to the Blessed Sacrament and Holy Mass everyday. It was a good thing that Masses in Sto. Rosario Church only lasted for 45 minutes with the priests giving short but very profound homilies.
It turned out well in the end. Change in my usual routine: lunch, play, school, and home was hard at first. However, my life became more meaningful when I added God in my daily activities.
