Mr. G. has been saying the Rosary everyday for, he estimates, the last seventy years.
"How long does it take you to get through it?" I asked (I grew up Catholic but couldn't remember).
"I've got to where I can do it in 26 minutes," he replied.
"Wow," I said, "you sure talk fast."
"I need to, I'm not sure how much time I have left (he laughed)."
Here's some quick math:
26 minutes/day OR 9490 minutes/year OR 664,300 minutes over the course of 70 years
There are 525,600 minutes in a year so he has spent 1.26 years of his life saying the Rosary.
He's 86 years old, cognitively intact and, obviously, still has a great sense of humor.
It appears to be time well spent.
